For me, there is no comparison. This car for me is exactly what a car is supposed to be. The comfort, the handling, the performance. I wouldnt change a thing!

Very clean and loaded with factory options. Low miles at a fantastic price. This was a true value too good to pass up. I bought it for my oldest daughter and shes over the moon excited about it. She absolutely loves it. The only thing this car doesnt have is navi and she didnt care about that anyway.

Great Look And Performance — Great all around car! Really no downgrades for this vehicle. It is smooth as silk on the highway and gets great gas millage. I would buy again! I can't say enough about this car. Lexus is the ultimate luxury brand!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This is a great Lexus with a proven track record of reliability and performance.

Cons: I have to sell it.

Great Small Luxury Car — We have owned this car for three years, and other then oil and gas we haven't spent a dime. Fuel mileage is great, and it looks great. It could use more power, and the small back seat makes it difficult for four people.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel mileage, reliability, and very stylish.  Very good in the snow as well

Cons: Low power, very little backseat room.

Class With Power — White Pearl color is awesome, interior is great, custom wheels are a must, as is custom exhaust. The car door height could be higher, but you can also lower the power seat. It is a classy looking car - better than the new body styles.

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

Pros: Body style

Cons: Low head height

Above Average — It was my first luxury car. It wasn't a bad choice for someone looking for the blend of performance and luxury for the money spent. I bought a 2008 Lexus IS250 RWD MT. I spent $31K out of the door back in late December of 2008.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability, Appearance, Luxurious

Cons: Performance

Affordable Luxury And Comfort — Great price point for the extra little nuances that make Lexus a luxury vehicle. Smooth ride and quick acceleration. TI also like that the mirrors are nice and large, despite the compact size of the care. However, the styling leaves much to be desired, as does the engine (for those seeking power)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great price point for the extra little nuances that make Lexus a luxury vehicle. Smooth ride and quick acceleration.

Cons: Styling leaves much to be desired, as does the engine (for those seeking power)
