2012 Lexus IS 350 C Convertible 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We can talk in the front seat with the top down at 50 mph with no problem from wind noise. Plenty of pep and corners well. We decided on a convertible and looked at sports cars like the Boxster, but we don't really drive in racing mode anymore and prefer a car that is smooth with plenty of power when needed. The 306 HP with a great automatic transmission does the job well. The transmission shifts are seamless. It rides almost as good as the, 300 lb lighter, ES-350 we traded in... just slightly harder because of the frame needed for a true convertible (not a convertible made from a coupe). A really nice car!

Review

Overall a great little fun convertible, I am 6'2" and fit in the car very well with good head room. The trunk has room for one bag of golf clubs with the top down. It handles very well. Getting between 21-22 mpg. Little hard to handle on the highway with the topdown and windows up when windy.


Best Features

Best feature is the car when the top is down! Seats very comfortable.


Worst Features

For some reason the radio does not go off when asking the nav system for weather and some other features it performs . Sometimes the car does not detect the key when it is in my pocket. The trunk and gas hatch release close to the VSA button and I have pushed the wrong button. Could use a little more room in the console. Seatbelt is a little awkward.
