Satisfied — Car is fun and comfortable to drive around town, sporty look appears to younger crowd even though considered a late model car. Car was bought 9 months ago for my 17 year old son, and so far we've been lucky with repairs, but on high mileage cars its only a matter of time before foreign car part prices kick in.

Pros: SMooth and comfortable ride

Cons: Repairs are costly

Great 4 Door Sport Sedan. — the is300 was purchased in 2001. i purchased one of the first vehicles to come stateside. it was a great car and offered adequate room, excellent power, handling and brakes, the fuel economy was excellent. the one drawback was because of the compact size of the car, it did not have the room for lots of passengers or luggage... but that is not what this car was built for anyways.

Pros: great build quality, power and handling in a small compact vehicle.

Cons: the only negative was small size = less cargo and passenger space.

A Lexus For The Youth In You, Unlike The Cliche Is350/250 Of Today. — Performance- Smooth inline 6, suspension is flawless, E-shift is forgettable and strange compared to other Automanuals, tight gear ratio, could use another gear as an overdrive. Build- Fantastic, no structural failure since purchased, extremely reliable Appearance- Decent front end while the rear lights are debatable by some. Cost- Typical Lexus, expensive when you bring her in. Fun Factor- Great engine output can be a real enjoyment driving, though thirsty compared to other cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The enjoyment of the 2JZ in an affordable Lexus wrapping.

Cons: Care about MPG

A+ In Value And Satisfaction — Performance is great and handles like a rock. Going on over 130k miles, and it drives better than new!!! Car still gets people raving about it and still looks fresh. Gas milage and maintenance are costly items, but better than German vehicles....overall, it's definitely worth the money. The fun factor and performance definitely offsets the tight space. This car is NOT for someone with children.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun factor and performance based...handles like a rock

Cons: Gas milage and maintenance cost for oil change, tuneup

Lots Of Fun — there is over 15,000 dollars put into the motor alone. when i get bored on the way it looks, i just buy a different kit to get me not to sell it!! the suspension is somewhat stock, and it handles like it is on rails. brake upgrade, but nothing spectacular, tv in dash with nav

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

Pros: its got balls

Cons: lo 12 quarter mile
