    The Best Is Model Made — Performance - 2JZ-GE engine with upgrades and output of 215+hp Custom exhaust is loud as hell. Great for canyon runs. Comfortable interior with DVD player and PS2. Able to beat an Audi A8 in a drag race if the R8 was only doing 50.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Its the first sports lexus

    Cons: Nothing this is the best car ever.

    Lexus — Handles nicely Very smooth and comfortable to drive... Acceleration is nice.. Body is a little weak... Interior has a little twist with custom design around gear shift and power buttons... Gas mileage is not very high... the one negative about the care.... it avgs to about 20 in the city... but good avg on highway...

    Pros: Good performance

    Cons: Gas Mileage

    Lexus Is 300 Sport Cross — I/we would have one of these car again tomorow if it didn't like the tast of fule so much .The level of service that we recieved when buying the car was second to none and it didn't end there.when needed the car was picked up from home and a courtecy car was provided at no cost,our car was always returned having had a full valet.

    Pros: feal good factor when driving the car

    Cons: giving all your hard earned to the goverment at fulle pump !!

    All Around Sport/luxo — I guess I have to write something here. I have owned this car for over 4 years now, done nothing to it in regards to repairs, and I am not necessarily an easy driver! Lots of fun do drive, and looks good doing it. The gas mileage and premium gas are it only downers...I'd buy another!

    Pros: Excellent balance and handling, classic good looks, nice seats

    Cons: no armrest, oh well

    Overall It Is A Great Car Fo The Average Person That Likes Luxery And A Bit Of Acceleration — I loved the inteior,good for longer trips. heated seat, ALL leather power windows, sunroof power everything. out of the car, it had good acceleration, good on gas Triptronic push button gears. very relible, nice midnight blue color, straight 3L straight 6. tail lights a unique but not asain rice rocket look. Dont like, one thing...i wish the seat were A/C, not just heated.

    Pros: Power everything and good color. A/C is unbalivable. got alot of "pep"

    Cons: no A/C seats

    2001 Lexus Is300 — Great little car, not the largest car in its class, but is quite comfortable. Decently equipped for the price. Sporty, Rear wheel drive. Good factory sound system. Gas mileage is mediocre at best (~22mpg) Decent power under the hood, more than enough to get you around (3.0L I6 215hp) But could be better, underpowered in its class, but makes up in nimble handling.

    Pros: Great looking, small, sporty car.

    Cons: wheres the GTE engine option?

    Great Perfoamce Platform With Lots Of Potention — Overall really great handling and performance sports sedan but very not fuel efficient, guess you gotta pay to have power and a nice ride. Very reliable as its an import but maintenance is expensive as well. Nice options but lacks rear fold down seats but a roof rack makes up for that when needed for equipment loads.

    Pros: very rare car on the road with a unique sports sedan look

    Cons: very bad fuel economy but its worth it sytle/comfort

    2jz-ge — Whole new racing crankshaft, pistons, aem short ram intake, lextasy strunt bar...haha, full hks super dragger exhaust, polished megan headers in the inside, with alot more to come. Black on black on the outside.

    Pros: 2jz supra motor with alot of hope!

    Cons: automatic which I cannot stand, but got such a deal on the car. Plan on converting it to a 6 speed someday, but it sure ain't easy or cheap one bit. Never thought I'd be driving auto, because it is so it against my religion when it comes down to cars.
