I would rate this car as excellent overall. Robust performance, quiet ride and refined look make the 350 a versatile autombile. Clearly a well engineered car with an impressive reliability record, far better than that of any German manufacturer. The interior is exceptional, keyless ignition and entry is so ingenious that you will never want to carry a car key around again, leather is comfortable, gauges are sharp, controls fairly intuitive. Exterior style is above average, great from the front/side angle but the rear looks similar to a Camry or Sonata.
Keyless ignition/entry is extremely convenient and well designed, interior aesthetics are awesome, more than ample power and braking, gauges are cool, attractive body style especially the front and side views.
Standard equipment excludes memory seats and HID headlights, features offered as standard in less expensive, comparable quality cars. In configuring the IS line, Lexus clearly attempts to force consumers towards their maximum profit "option" packages.
