Lexus Is250 Sr Triptronic — Awesone Car. Only downside you can't switch the traction control off fully. Performance is excellent. 140 mph is easy, 0-60 in around 8 secs. The gearbox is CVT so you can still get 35 + mpg. Boot is a tad on the small side.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 204 BHP lol

Cons: Traction control

Lexy — Everything about my IS250's performance, including acceleration, braking, handling is great! I have had absolutely no problems - just taken her in for normal oil changes and car washes and such. She is beautiful! Gas mileage is okay, definitely have to fill her up, she's so fun to drive! All my friends beg to drive me places so they can drive her haha.

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

Pros: All

Cons: Almost none

I Love My Is250. Rides And Handles Like A Dream. — Performance - good but not great in power. It only has 204 hp but its a very useable and fun engine. Handling is awesome with sports wheels and suspension. Built like a vault but not perfect. A few squeeks in the dash. To me its the best styled of all small sedans. The Lexus is just plain sexy to look at. No repairs to date after 50k This car is lots of fun. Its not Porsche fast but I dont race, I cruise, even so theres plenty of power and I have never felt lacking. The smooth quiet ride is amazing for such a small car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Quiet, beautiful styling,navigation,luxury,fuel economy

Cons: Needs a little more power

Bland Performance From An Intelligent Sport (get It? Is) Saloon, But Overall Very Happy — Performance - not as quick as the Audi I owned, certainly a more relaxed drive. Build quality - better than the Audi, probably best in class. Appearance - love it, or hate it, it is unique - until I saw the new Mazda6. Even has the same kick in the door line at the rear door pillar. Cost of ownership - maintenance is covered for the next 90,000 kms. Gas milage is slightly better than the Audi. Thus far after 5,000kms, I've averaged 9.9 litres/100kms. Fun Factor - Hmmmm - only if you're older than 50. The ISF will bring a smile to my face. Brand Appeal - I'm getting far more "thumb ups" and nods of approval compared to the three years with the Audi. Lexus is the new luxury German brand (tongue in cheek). Resale value - best in class by far.

Pros: Build quality, reputation, reliability, relaxed open road cruiser.

Cons: Slow auto gearbox compared to the new generation dual clutch systems (as in my old Audi).

Wayne Lexus — This veahicle accelerates, brakes and handles like a dream. It s black sapphire outside with a cashmere leather interior with heated and cooled seats. Upgrades include the dual HKS Exhaust and the F-Sport Cold air intake, more to some soon. Very comfortable ride quality, cannot even feel the car shift gears. definately would reccomend this car to anyone looking to own a luxury sports car.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Lexus Love — This automobile is all about affordable luxury without sacrificing sports-car feel and performance. When I get behind the wheel, I don't want to leave. The engineering is unique both inside and out. Although it is not a hybrid, which I intended on buying this time, it does have ultra low emissions which makes me feel better about its impact on the environment. I love that it is all wheel drive, making me feel better about driving in NM winter snow. Absolutely fun to drive.

Pros: AWD, Sporty and Luxurious, Lower Environmental Impact

Cons: None
