    Excellent Car — This car is excellent as a daily driver, reliable and quick. It has the looks and interior styling of a luxury car but with a sports-car twist. Once you're inside you are practically in your own world, no noise except for the radio. The only downside is if you're looking for a sports car, this is not it. Lexus did well with the styling and perhaps the IS350 would suffice, but 204hp is simply not enough for a sports car. Other than that, very nice car that makes daily commutes slightly more fun.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Styling, features, quietness, luxuriousness, gas mileage

    Cons: Back window is hard to see out, not enough horsepower

    Luxurious — I like the handling and suspension and especially the heated AND ventilated/cooling seats. It works in any temperature at any time of year! This car was a very nice, extremely comfortable ride for me for almost four years. Great lumbar support too!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Amazing suspension, beautiful styling, impressive over all

    Cons: I can't think of anything wrong with this vehicle.

    9/10 — Good acceleration, poor handling. Has quite a firm feel while driving. Good electronics and interior design. It does have a great fun factor, turning traction control off always adds that extra kick in the corners. The cost of ownership however is where the car lets you down.

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

    Pros: Looks and performance

    Cons: Handling at points.

    Definitely Would Recommend One, But I'd Opt For A Is350 If You Can. — Great if you're single, there isn't much room in the back but its super comfy. Sat. nav is also easy to use and intuitive. All the technology in this car is pretty useful and I find myself actually using it rather than just knowing you have it. Comes almost fully loaded out of the box so it basically is the best bang for your buck entry luxury sedan.

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

    Pros: Girls think it's cute.

    Cons: backseats are cramped, and its terribly underpowered for a high compression V6.

    Supercharger Soon — its a fun car that has a nice ride. It has adequate performance, and can be fast at times. It is not that expansive although it takes premium gas. Its really fun to drive though. On a nice day you can have a nice cruis.

    Pros: I like how it handles through the turns

    Cons: The lack of power

    Nice Car! — Great Car all around excellent and no complaints from me. Has given me absolutely no problems. The IS 250 is a lot of fun to drive, but I can't help feeling that it should have a manual transmission with its V-6 engine. The automatic with paddle shifters almost makes me forget that I wish the IS 250 had a little more power. I know it's not very, um, fuel-efficient of me, but I must floor the IS 250 everywhere I go to get that goofy, speed-induced grin. Thankfully, this car gets an EPA-estimated 20/26 mpg city/highway, so I can feel less guilty when I floor it. The IS 250 also has responsive brakes and steering. As a result, the IS 250 made me happiest when it was just me and her, with no complaints of car sickness from the backseat.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: everything

    Cons: backseats are a little small, but nothing to complain about

    Good Quality But Boring — Very comfort, smooth but not so exciting. Quality is perfect. No squeaks and rattles. Almost no noise. Handling is not so precise as BMW 3s. City:22 mpg, Highway:35mpg. Haven't paid for any maintenance for two years thanks to the Lexus Care Program.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Build Quality

    Cons: Performance
