    Godlike — The car picks up pretty quick. It is faster than that of many other cars on the road. The braking is also pretty good good. The turning circle isn't bad although I still wished it was better. My car is unique because I added tint to the windows and a blue AEM short ram intake under the hood. I hope to have more upgrades to come in the future!

    Pros: Beautiful, sleek, sexy!

    Cons: It could pick up a bit faster and the 6 disc in dash doesn't always work too well.

    Nice — This is my cousin's car that I got to drive on occasions. It's a very nice handling car- sticks very hard in corner and I do push it till I feel it slip. Engine fells powerful, seats are nice. Stereo is wonderful. transmission is responsive, the seats are positioned high which gives me much better visibility than in my infiniti's only thing i dont quite enjoy is that steering effort is much heavier than the infinit and windows rolls up and down slow conpared to my infiniti

    Pros: Engine, transmission, seating position

    Cons: windows feel slow, steering heavier than infiniti

    My Lexus Is 300! — I love it! I bought it last fall! The car handles great, and with a V6, is very fuel efficient but still has that get up we are all looking for!

    Pros: Appearance, safety, heaviness (hugs to the road), acceleration, sunroof and many more!!

    Cons: There is nothing that I can say I don't love!

    Perfect Daily Driver — What this car needs is about 100 more horsepower, firmer suspension, a clutch type LSD, and more room to comfortably fit 9.5" wide wheels all around. Other than that, it's a perfect little car to get to work in. this car originated the "Altezza" taillight style, but it is a look that's starting to get old, even on the IS300. The 5-speed automatic "E-shift" feature is not that great, it is no more than selecting gears using a standard automatic shifter, except the selection is performed using buttons on the steering wheel.

    Pros: Descent build and performance for what it is.

    Cons: E-Shift is not the same as a manual transmission.
