2010 Lexus IS 350 C 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Bought 3 days ago. Tested many cars multiple times before getting the Lexus. The IS 350c is built solid, has less cowl shake than my last SUV, and is very fun to drive with lots of zoom! Looks will get you noticed, and acceleration is thrilling. Tires seem to really grip the road. The feature set as a whole is impressive! It seems to have it all, from a voice activated nav that is very sophisticated, to back-up camera & valet options that lock the glove and trunk.
Fast acceleration, quiet and stable ride, useful gadgets, Lexus reliability. Just plain fun to drive! With the top down on the freeway going 70mph, you can still have a normal conversation. Real cupholders for us morning commute coffee drinkers.
Visibility is great with the rear headrests down (activated via a lever). Improvements would be to add lever to raise back up, but not big deal. Also would be nice to rest elbow outside the window. As it is, the side is too high to do this comfortably. Oh, and make it faster with more mpg of course. :)
