I have had this car a little over 2 years now, purchased senior year in HS. Have never had any problem other than battery replacement. My friends love to ride in it/drive it. Good for sporty design and driving but also the ability to put decent cargo in it. My friend built me a custom woofer box and I still have ample space in trunk. I plan on driving this car until it can't drive anymore, which, if it keeps up like it has, will be a long time from now.
I have an auto trans and love to switch to tiptronic (e-shift i think lexus calls it) and flip on the power button for sporty driving.
Bigger engine with more HP like the IS 350, also my CD player is messing up, but I need to get a new head unit anyway for an AUX setting for my gps/mp3. Other than that this car has anything I would ever need it for.
