Review

Car is capable of very good gas mileage. Engine response is delayed and acceleration is weak. However, very strong and capable once up to speed on highway. Suspension a little stiff but good on highways. Steering is quick and you need to get accustomed to it. Some break noise from front and terrible brake dust situation with front wheels. Very solid and fun to drive. Test drove a 330i and decided to go with the Lexus. I am satisfied with my decision.


Best Features

Comfort, design and appearance.


Worst Features

Fix the front brake situation with the dust. No excuse for a car of this level to have such a fundamental issue. Improve acceleration and refine program to eliminate slow response. Increase rear seating room.

Review

The most fun car that I have ever owned. Few minor flaws such as extreme brake dust on front wheels, loud popping sound from dash. Overall a great little car. Wish it was a bit bigger on the inside. I have two small kids and even they are cramped in the back seat. Makes me feel young again! Head turner!!


Best Features

Keyless entry, push button start, heated and cooled seats, XM... too many to list.


Worst Features

Fix the popping sound and figure out a way to make the brake dust subside. Use a heavier duty paint.

Review

overall great car. The exterior of the car is sleek and sexy but not nearly as sleek as the interior. The interior is very comfortable and i love the touch screen/navigation, very user friendly. Only my second car, but I like how the seats are heated and cooled. The handling is also phenomenal, I can make turns at speeds and make tight U turns I never could have with a 5 series. So far I've gotten the car up to 130 mph and everything worked perfectly including the handling.


Best Features

Interior's comfy


Worst Features

I would love the car to be a bit faster.

Review

I really like the ride. Reliability is really well and as a previous owner of a BMW I prefer a vehicle that is more reliable. Too many problems with BMW 328i. Great car in and out and the women love this car. Great nav, Bluetooth and rear camera is a must. Love the performance and the 1/2 second lag is not as bad as others say. Added a short air intake and feels more responsive. IS F-sport coming soon and looking forward to upgrading brakes all the way around. HID Xenon lights are wonderful and the ride is great and responsive. Again this is not a Cadillac it’s a sports car!


Best Features

Love the interior leather, love the cluster and its white bright lights and they way the cluster shows you are going to redline. Have taken IS 250 to 140 MPH and handles like a champ! Love taking this car on the S curves on the weekends!


Worst Features

Rear is high not good for backing up only does well when big trucks tailgate and blocks their headlights. Glad I have a rearview camera. Cup holder and the charger in the arm rest is set to high. Can't close the arm rest when charging iPod, I have to use the cigarette charger.
