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.

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

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
