    A Keeper — Powerful acceleration, Great handling, Fun to drive and comfortable to be in. Good on gas for a V6. Looks great and interior is well built and looks classy. Has a sports performance yet is still comfortable enough to be a daily driver.

    Pros: Powerful, excellent handling, sleek shape, good on fuel

    Cons: dashboard can get sticky

    Excellent Vehicle In So Many Ways — Great sunroof, but the sound system is awesome! The navigation system is voice or manually automated which is like hands free commands..really can't beat the car's performance in each and every way. The acceleration is like a rocket for a sedan and the handling is superb!

    Pros: Extremley comfortable and safe. I am in the car now, if I were not moving I'd keep it until it had 300K miles!

    Cons: Well instead of an average of 20 mi per gallon I would like to have more, but i wouldn't give up the comfort or handling of a Lexus

    It Is A Great Car, I Wish I Don't Have To Give It Back, But I Still Have 6 Months With It :) — This car is very well rounded. The performance is great for a car of this class, the breaks are sensitive but responsive, and it handles exceptionally well. The build quality is great, no squeaks or noises. I don't know about the reliability since I have only had it 2 days but I have hears great reviews. It is great on fuel and very fun to drive. It is a classy car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Classy, Sporty, Fun, Economical

    Cons: Has a high price tag

    2008 Is350 — Great car to drive. Luxury, power, and attitude all in one package. Not many cars on the road can keep up with it. You will see a lot of pretenders out there with the 250s but very few 350s. 9/10 Rating

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Smooth, fast and classy

    Cons: Needs more backseat space

    Is 350 — The best bang for your buck, luxury and performance in a nice looking package. This car is very quick and fun to drive. I would recommend this car to anyone that wants a fun car. The drive is smooth and quiet. Go for the 350 instead of the 250 you will not regret it.

    Pros: Great look

    Cons: premium fuel

    Lexus Is 300 (middle East Edition) — I think my ride is sweet cuz it is in pearl white and can keep up to its competitors with less difficulty and for its class it is fast and catches fast saloon cars....the acceleration is quick 0-100 6.9secs, and the since the car is heavy the body and chasis is very stable...and the IS styling is just gorgeous...DVD-NAV Mark Levinson system, leather trim and the with the Aero Kit i said it makes the car look more agressive . and in terms of gas mileage it give 425 KMS for 12 gallons....and the maintainence is not too expensive...and with the F1 paddle shift gears the car is just allf fun to drive with....

    Pros: DVD NAV 14 Speakers Mark Levinson System, Agreesive Looks, Responsive Engine.

    Cons: Lacks Behind Legroom.

    Great Looking Exterior But Everything Else Fails — The car is beautiful on the outside with it's proportions and curves. Compared to other cars in it's class and price range, the inside is very cheap looking and feeling. But the worst part of all, are the electronic aids. In both the IS350 and IS250, the dash will start blinking at you if you accelerate even slightly aggressively. If you every try and push the limits of the car, it will completely take over the steering, gas, and brakes to bring you to a stop in a straight line even if you are trying to turn. Not fun at all to drive and the interior is disappointing.

    Pros: Exterior styling

    Cons: Everything other than the exterior styling
