Perfection

by Darkside from Boise, ID on Sat Oct 27 2018

F Sport is entirely different experience from the base and is well worth the money. There’s nothing I would change other than having the auto adjusting side mirrors in reverse that the base has.

A fun daily driver that is very reliable

by ARentz07 from Kansas City, MO on Wed Nov 28 2018

I've had my IS 300 AWD F Sport for two years now, and it's been a blast to own. It's rare that I give someone a ride in the IS without their compliments. The interior looks stylish, with LFA-inspired layout, and the seats hug me in nicely. The car could use some more interior storage, but thankfully I wouldn't really need it since it's usually just me and sometimes my wife in the car. The car is tight, but I wouldn't call it cramped - even the back seats are okay if you're not over six feet. The trunk is even big enough for Costco shopping. Really where the IS shines is how it drives. It isn't overly sporty but always feels "ready". The suspension is firm, but it is just fine for me to commute to work every day. With the AWD system, snow is also a non-issue and is in fact, quite fun to drive in. The handling reveals that this car is heavy, but it has a lot more grip than you might think as well as an awesome engine sound. The only real downsides are the gas mileage, the infotainment controls, and the space on the inside. I have been averaging about 19 MPG over the life of the car, but on the other hand, I don't drive on the highway often. In addition, the Remote Touch controller is tough to use. I got used to it over time, but it can still be distracting from time to time. However, if you like to drive, you will appreciate this car. I certainly do, and recommend it if you want a trouble-free premium compact sedan.
