Perfect luxury/performance/reliability combination

No other car in this class comes close to the comfort of this car. Performance, it's up there - blows away Acuras and any FWD car. Does it perform like a BMW? Maybe not but unless you're on a closed track the difference is negligible for 99% of drivers, whereas the luxury and reliability factors are noticibly better in the IS. I love this car!

Very nice ride

by from Oregon on December 6, 2011

Very comfortable front seats, but not much room for adults sitting in back. Easy to use navigation. Rear view visibility is not great. A rear view back up camera helps. Sleek, sexy, simplistic design....
Very comfortable front seats, but not much room for adults sitting in back. Easy to use navigation. Rear view visibility is not great. A rear view back up camera helps. Sleek, sexy, simplistic design. If you're deciding between the 250 and 350, go with the latter as the 250 is very underpowered. Very solid and well built vehicle.

Better than my Vette

by from SanMarcos, Texas on August 23, 2011

In love with this car. Blacked out the grill and the wheels. Get compliments daily! 29 MPG average with HEAVY peddle.

My Dream Car

This is a great vehicle. I have driven the IS250 vs the IS350 and the 350 is definitely worth the extra money. The acceleration alone is worth it. However, that "get up and go" comes with a price, low MPG. It has the worst fuel efficiency of any of the performance cars I have owned so be prepared to fill up on premium gas often. Otherwise, it is a great car that is comfortable and fun to drive. A excellent purchase that I don't regret.

I have had this for 1 month and its been a pleasure to have this vehicle. I love the drive, acceleration, and all the features it has. The bluetooth is a bit outdated with this being a 2008 but there are ways to get around it. The backup camera is really nice to have. This car is not for people much over 6ft as far as the back seats. Dont think much problem if you are in front however. Get 3M paint protection for the front as the hood is prone to rock chips. You wont be sorry you got this car!!!

For years I drove BMW 3 series. When it was time to get a new car, I simply could not afford the BMW 3 series I wanted with all of the extra options, so I explored Lexus. Service and affordability has been excellent. I went with the IS 350 instead of the 250 to compare to my previous BMW. Along with this, I got all of the "bells and whistles" I could not afford in the BMW. I have had this car going on 4 years now, and I just can't love it. It does not take a sharp corner without skidding out in the rear. Visibility is not very good for me compared to my previous cars. I am constantly "curb checking." Not sure why. The Nav system is not very helpful-I often use my google maps on my iphone instead. The back seat is very small. I do enjoy all of the features that Lexus includes, though. I would definitely recommend Lexus for the customer service, and I do enjoy driving the RX when I get a loaner. Otherwise, I may have to return to German engineering.
