2008 Lexus IS 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Pros/Likes: Very silent, smooth V6 engine, powerful acceleration and pulls hard beyond 4000rpm, excellent brakes, bulletproof electrics, excellent base sound-system, vented heated seats great in summer, soft plastics are a pleasure to the touch, nice LED lighting ambiance inside. Absolutely nothing like a regular Toyota (even though people love to say Lexus are overpriced Toyota... NOT). Cons/dislikes: Too silent for my tastes (needs a BMW like I6 grunt), awkward position of clock, tripmeter odo is not separate, navigation takes time to get used to, very limited headroom (I'm 5'9" and my head brushes the headliner with the seat all the way flat).

Best Features

Excellent acceleration/power for a V6, excellent brakes (much more powerful than the IS250 brakes).

Worst Features

Needs 1-2 more inches of headroom.

Brother I'm 5'11' and fit just right, the car has a power button to move up and down your seat. We are quite but still beat the BMW 335i; for less money and no need of two turbo’s so just give thanks to GOD if you have a Lexus is350.
