Lemon — The car looked great, but it almost immediately developed issues. Yes, I bought it used and should have known that it had an engine recall in its past. What a mistake. They called me 'smoky' at work because the car put out so much oil smoke. If I took a short trip, the next time I started the car, it would be slight. If I drove even 20 miles, the next time the car was started, people stopped and stared because the oil cloud was so large. When the three catalytic converters blew at the same time, it was just icing on the cake. Even using non-Lexus parts, they were expensive. I will never buy a Lexus again.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looked good, comfortable seats, nice amenites, good handling

Cons: The 2000 had an engine recall, which I didn't know about when I bought the car.  After just a few short months, it belched oil smoke like it was on fire, blew all three of its catalytic converters and stopped getting any sort of acceptable gas mileage.

Wonderful Family Car — This is a great car if you want a performace family sedan. Stands out in a crowd even though it's over 10 years old. The leather seats are comfortable and the car handles great. I traded this car with around 100k miles on it without ever having to make a major repair. Everything you would expect driving a Lexus.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great, smooth ride.  Toyota reliability

Cons: Requires Premium Fuel

Very Nice, How Much?!? — Performance - Amazing handling and acceleration, brakes is dependent on what you buy. Build Quality - replaced only one thing in 130,000 VVT-I Sensor. Appearance - Stylish both in and outside, leather usually heated like mine, outside very sleek nice lines. Cost of Ownership - 28-30 MPG, and just basic maintenance Fun Factor - Absolutely you can take alot of cars off the line with this thing. Handles well in the corners, go get one and put it through the paces that's one strong 3.0

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability and pretty decent performace

Cons: It looks like it belongs to an elderly person. However, tint them windows throw some nice little chromes on it BAM!

Good Buy — These would make great cars for anyone, with low mileage. I like the not overly-complicated dash and radio controls. The sound system is fantastic, loud and accurately recreated. The six disc changer is a bit old, though. I will upgrade to better tires, from the Tire Rack when these are worn; if I don't get another car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable. Smooth.

Cons: A bit floaty. Low 20s MPG. (My previous Prius 50 mpg spoiled me)
