The last of the V8's

Just purchased a 2024 IS500 vector blue as soon as I saw it at the dealer. Happy to pay MSRP as this will be a classic. The car is fast and fun to drive and unlike a hard core M3 or AMG it is actually very comfortable as a daily driver, and that V8 sound is SPECTACULAR! This is probably the best looking sports sedan in the market. Some reviews complain about a dated interior, however I find it comfortable and very high quality, in fact that is one of the reasons Lexus and Toyotas are so reliable, they are not constantly making drastic changes every year but constantly improving on what is already a top notch fit and finish. If you live in an area with winter snow and ice this might not be a good year round car and the only other possible issue is the rear seat is tight so if you transport big and tall people keep the ride short.

Perfect combination of style and elegance with sporty drive. For driver, everything intuitive and makes sense. A car well done!

The V8 talks to me!

I wanted to buy the vanilla IS 500 F-Sport, but they only had the Premium model available, so I bought it. I'm very happy I got the Premium instead, as it adds some nice details and features I didn't know I needed such as the LED lights and 17 speaker stereo! This is the only car in this class that has a V8, and it roars when you put your foot in it! In Sport S+ mode, the car turns into a rocket sled when you get in the ~5,000 rpm range. Redline is 7,300 rpms which is impressive for a V8. However, my wife can put around happily as well in "normal" mode. The car is very comfortable, rides nice, and looks sexy. Some reviews complain about lack of cargo space, but this is not an SUV and it has plenty of room when you fold down the back seats. Don't settle for the IS 350, as it has 150+ less horse power, and only weighs about 150 lbs. less than the IS 500. The two body styles and interior are identical except there is an extra bump on the hood to accommodate the slightly larger V8 engine. In 6 months driving in Southern California, I have only seen one other on the road, so the IS 500 is rather rare, which is what a gem like this should be. I will be happily driving my Lexus IS500 F-Sport Premium for many years and get many compliments from friends and strangers regarding the car.

Only drawback is that the mirrors don’t fold and I feel like for the price the sound system should be an automatic upgrade. Other than that…great vehicle

Car did not have enough power. Back seat and trunk areas were small.
