    Excellent Driving — The IS's dash assaults the senses with high tech wonder. My test vehicle was equipped with a $3,990 package of options that included DVD-based navigation and a Mark Levinson sound system, which is really one of the best car audio systems I've ever heard. I made a point of bringing some favorite new music on CD with me wherever I drove, just so I could revel in the sound. Still, four grand is a lot of lettuce for a car stereo and GPS.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: smooth-riding and quiet but a bit light on emotion. Handling is secure and precise

    Cons: the level of noise that is made by the car’s engine

    Can't Go Wrong.. And It's A Good Car As Long As You Didn't Have A Muscle Car Before It. — acceleration sucks compared to my previous mustang.. but i'm sure it's better than those most. good details, leather, quite, good mileage. Funfactor? out of 5 i give it 3... kinda boring. everyones got one.. nothing special, not powerful enough to feel like the king of the roads. noteven the 350 has the bang for the buck.

    Pros: typical asian car.

    Cons: typical asian car..........

    Avoid Lexus — Slow on the uptake, brakes are terrible. Toys inside are fun, like the navigation and integrated bluetooth; MP3 jack is in a terrible spot. Maintenance and upkeep are expensive. Wish I would have bought another BMW. Will be getting rid of it soon...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nav system/bluetooth

    Cons: Drive performance

    7.5 Out Of 10 — Needs more power, a lower center of gravity, bigger wheels, and more room in the back seats!!! The stock tires wear too quickly, maintenance is costly, Lexus needs to add an Ipod intergration into the stock radio and gas milage is about average. Overall, I should have bought an Audi.

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: Costly dealership repairs
