My First 4-door — My first 4-door, and easily my largest car. I loved the styling and stance the first time I saw the car. Bought it a few years after introduced. Have been enjoying the car, except for the Premium gasoline requirement. Performance is great, and as a Toyota product, reliability is naturally high.

Pros: Styling, Performance, Reliability

Cons: Premium gasoline requirement

It Was Love On The First Test Drive — well for one thing: it's fast. very quiet, stops on a dime, handles beautifully, many safety and anti-theft features. I've only had one problem with it so far and that was a rear main seal leak. After getting that fixed, I drove it from FL to NC and back without a problem.

Pros: sunroof and the suede & leather seats are a huge plus.. the car is perfect as it is, theres not a thing I need to add or change!

Cons: 19-25 mpg and its not an SUV, so when we have another hurricane, i wont be able to go navigate the streets :(

Great Reliable Sports-compact With Atrocious Body Roll And Weak Brakes. — Something like what I said above. Car is underpowered for its price range, but quiet and solidly built. No squeaky plastic or interior noises here...

Pros: Quiet, decent gas mileage, very comfortable ride

Cons: Under-powered, terrible body roll, 215/45 series tires on stock rims,
relatively heavy.

What You'd Expected: Top-notch Quality From Lexus. — I wasn't a fan of Lexus until I've started looking for one to buy. I spent 1 month looking for the perfect IS300 that I've wanted as a Daily Driver. Truthfully, I did come across a few unpleasant ones that just could not be my perfect IS300, so I chose to wait for the perfect opportunity.... and there she was. Overall, I think I've got what I've paid for--every goddamn penny, too!

Pros: -5 speed
-Fast enough
-Relatively new
-Cheap enough for me to buy
-Insurance rate is low

Cons: -Semi-leather seats ftl
-It is an used car
-Gas mileage is ehhh...

Got This As A Family Car, Love It — I love the handling and the directness of the power. The throtle response is outstanding in "Manual" mode, it is as responsive as a stick shift. It hugs turns for days and i have not been able to get it to break traction while going through the canyons.

Pros: inspiring handling, comfortable for the front seats, not bad on gas. Good looking cluster

Cons: small

Extraordinary Ride — Kept up with the maintenance like clockwork so the only thing I've ever had to do was replace the battery once and the brakes twice in 110K miles. No other problems whatsoever. The car is really easy to service since I have the factory shop manual and a ton of experience.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love this little "Go Cart" handling of a machine.  Rides like its on rails.

Cons: Would like to have a bigger trunk if I could.

Awesome Vehicle. — This is my 2nd IS300. I like the performance and handle of this vehicle. This v6 vvt engine give plenty of power to curising up and down on the freeway. Steering is effortless and precise on the road. Great vehicle to have.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable ride and handling. This is my 2nd IS300. I love it.

Cons: Not enough rear space.
