Will not buy another Lexus
By wasgmguy on


2014 Lexus IS 350 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Just traded in my 08 cadillac CTS on this new 2014 IS350 AWD.
I have been a GM guy all my life and decided to go with my first import car.
I looked at BMW, Audi, Ford Fusion and a few others.
If you are looking for a true sport sedan, look else were.
This is more luxury than sport. It has a very comfortable interior and perfectly laid out.
It does handle great and has very impressive performance.
I still think BMW does handle a little better.
Audi was a little too stiff riding but had a lush interior.
But Lexus fit all my requirements this time.
I have only owned it for a couple months, so far, so good.
I hope it's reliable as they say.

Reliability has been OK. Something drained the battery one day, and when taken to the dealer, they had no explanation. This happens to my friends GS350 constantly. The voice activation/navigation is a joke and Lexus should be embarrassed. Lots of road noise for a car of this price. I will be trading this car in for another brand once the warranty is due.
