Is 350 — acceleration 0-60 in 5.4 second, it's a really fun to drive car. The gas mileage is not bad, the worst i got 14mpg in city and 18 in highway. I love the appearance, especially the exterior. I have the car for about 2 years and it starts to squeaks. Love the option in my car too; luxury package: navigation, rear sun shade, seat memory, mark levinson sound system...sadly, minus the parking sensor...;(

Pros: Navigation system, acceleration, appearance, fun to drive

Cons: squeaks

Is350 — Its a solid car all around. Rating in appearance is highly subjective so I will not judge the car by it. However, built quality and performance of the car is far more superior than most of its competing class. For example, I can honestly say that this sports sedan is far more reliable and well built compared to any DTM in par at cost.

Pros: yes

Cons: none so far

Lexus Is 350 Is Sweet — Performance - quick pickup, smooth, no jerks when shifting, paddle shifting works very quick. Build Quality -- no repairs yet, sensors on brake went haywire once. Appearance -- really sexy in and out Cost - 22 mpg, maintenance cost is just an oil change every 5K miles Fun Factor - one of the best cars i have driven.

Pros: everything

Cons: no stick shift on 350

Great Car — I love this car. It has the heart of a race car in the body of a sedan. The throttle is responsive and braking to match.

Pros: Sexy, performance ready, luxurious

Cons: The only thing that I can say bad about this car is that it is not available in an all wheel drive model.

Wolf In Sheep's Clothing — The logo is the only way to tell the difference between an IS250 and an IS350 - unless you are behind the wheel. Then it is night and day - the IS350 is a totally different car than the anemic underpowered 250.

Pros: Great mix of power, handling and refinement.

Cons: No memory for seat settings

It's An Awesome Car! — My husband bought this car as a wedding gift for me. Also, it looks nice and can't beat the price. We use this car for leisure time in the summer and fall.

Pros: Navigation System, Seats Warmer, Amazing Performance and Gorgeous Appearance.

Cons: Can't drive in the Winter - too slippery.

Love It If It Didn't Require Tires — I have replaced tires and wheels way too many times to remember. The low tire light comes on constantly. One tiny pothole can cost nearly $500. Unless you drive in a bubble or you love to buy new wheels, consider another vehicle. BTW, my sister owns this same car, and she is experiencing the fun times with the wheels as well. Also, the dashboard and door facings are sticky and very easy to gouge. It looks awful. When it heats up outside, everything sticks to it. My car does not have a rear camera, but it definitely needs one. It is nearly impossible to see behind you to back up. I have to use the side mirrors, but this scenario is not ideal.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast and fun to drive! Very handsome with tons of bells and whistles

Cons: Maintenance is costly and drinks gas for its size
