    Love At 1rts Drive — Adding the complete F-sport system made this a 1 in a million car ,as they come from the dealer as an "f-sport" they do not have all the suspension upgrades, intake exhaust etc. A very low mait. vechicle, electronic power steering w/ 6speed triptronic auto trans w/ over drive so a 7 speed trans with great gas milage I get 32 highway now with the upgrades and 20 city . I was between the 09/2010 accord coupe v6 and this and this won by a landslide !!! so many more features ,a touchscreen nav,opposed to a dial . dvd I phone hook up , usb hook up tv cooled seats is fantastic in CA in the summer and the heated seats in CA get so nice and warm you don't even need to use the heat ever . All in all this is a solid car I have had a Camaro ,mustand ,eagle talon , mitsu evo , 3 accords ,an 07 civic si , and many more cars and this is the best by far such a smooth quiet ride and superb handling , with all the amenities its worth 30k easily

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: All oem mods F-sport and luxury package , excellent handeling due to the f-sport front and rear sway bars and performance from the f-sport intake and exhaust added 22hp
    Interior is such a smooth idle, ride and no road noise

    Cons: well now that all mait. is done and the parts are installed none.
    no ,seriously though parts are pricy from the dealer , I use all oem parts but found a dealer in florida that is 1/10 th cost the price on all oem lexus parts so its about the same to keep up as a civic but a lot nicer and a ton more options

    I Love This Car, Its Good Looking On The Road And Feels More Like A Sports Car Than A Coupe — For the past two years I have had no problems with the car except for the new engine due to a recall from Lexus. Very sleek and sporty, it feels more like your driving a sports car than a coupe.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty body style, very sleek.   The interior has nice technology.  Very comfortable ride.

    Cons: Back seat was too small for my growing boys.

    The Feel Of Luxury And Sporty In One! — This car makes road trips enjoyable and comfortable. It has heated seats for those cold days and cooling seats in hot days. Equipped with automatic windshield wipers to make driving in the rain an ease. Bluetooth connection/Handsfree you got it! I never thought I would use this accessory as much as I do, but so happy to be equipped with it. This car is great on gas and rides smooth. Definately a smaller family car, but suitable for a family of 4.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This car has everything!  From sporty to luxury... could not ask for much more.

    Cons: Remember... it is a Lexus not a Chevy so even an oil change can be pricey.

    Pros: i like the handling of the car and also the styling

    Slick Ride — Wonderful all around. Can't do many upgrades but with a car this sexy who needs 'em? One day maybe I can get the IS-F and then have a car that's equally as sexy as it is fast. KkThxBai. Alright. Cool.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The traction control is a little rough around the edges but the sport mode is where it's at. I haven't gotten to test the built in snow mode yet.

    Cons: Nothing.

    Great Car Would Recommend To Anyone. — Not roomy enough if you have kids who still use a car seat. Overall it is a great car had very few problems since new and what did go wrong was fixed with no hassles at Sewell Lexus of Grapevine under warranty. Have not had any issues in the past three years.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very nice looking car, low maintenance cost, comfortable seats, user friendly navigation and bluetooth nice interior color combination.

    Cons: Not very roomy with two car seats in the back.

    Great Car, Perfect For Everyday Family Motoring. Snow Tyres Are A Must Though ;) — Love it, does everything I ask of it, even in the middle of winter despite it's RWD drivetrain. For a diesel it's pretty quick, and it does it economically too; drive it on the motorway and you can easily see 55mpg+, around the doors it's still 35mpg+. It's fun to drive, and the RWD nature doesn't try to bite back at you at all, it's still nice and easy to drive, and fun too.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Refined, economical, and well specced even in the base trim.

    Cons: Lexus parts prices aren't cheap, and the dealers prices aren't either!  The warranty company will also look for any reason to avoid warranty work...

    Gas Milage — This vehicle stands out as a clear performance and luxury vehicle. It has class and the ability to get up and go when needed. I would recommend the vehicle to anyone looking for a fun ride at a reasonable price.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: style class and performance

    Cons: no space in the back seat but hey who needs friends

    Great Looking Vehicle But Not As Fun To Drive As Others It Its Class. Some Annoying Defects. — Great looking car with nice interior and great radio. Some issues: Broken/missing parts in the sunroof and dash, wheels delaminated after 2 years (the dealer tells me that this is common on Lexus), car arrived with front spoiler installed incorrectly. It's been in the shop 15 times in 3 years. Interestingly, when I expressed dissatisfaction with various aspects of the car in a Lexus customer satisfaction survey, nobody got back to me. The dealership has returned the car to me after servicing with greasy hand prints on the light grey cloth headliner and pillars a number of times. Once, when the car was in to get snow tires installed they lost my summer tires - permanently. It took more than 4 months to resolve this. The car replaced my old 2002 Mercedes C230 coupe. The Merc was less expensive and substantially outperformed the Lexus. The Mercedes dealership/service experience was also better.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Exterior and interior appearance, sound system

    Cons: Manual gear box weak, build quality issues
