IS 350 Convertible
"I love this Lexus convertible. I would definitely get the 350 engine, as after driving a IS 250, it was very stylish, but I felt like I was in a dog sled (for lack of speed and quickness and agility). "

Lexus IS 250 Review
"I absolutely love my Lexus IS 250! Lexus vehicles are very reputable, especially when maintained properly. The only downside I see to owning a Lexus is that most Lexus vehicles require premium gasoline. In my opinion, it is worth paying extra for gas to be able to drive such a great car. As with any vehicle, I would also recommend regular oil changes. In particular, the Lexus IS 250 may be too small for a family, but I consider it roomy in the front seat. If you are interested in the Lexus IS 250, but you think it may be too small, you may want to consider a Lexus ES, RX, GS, or LS. They are much larger than the IS, but are somewhat similar in design."

I absolutely love sitting in the front seat, but the back seat seems to be a bit too small.

I absolutely love how the exterior of the car looks!

The Lexus IS 250 provides 200ish horsepower, which keeps me satisfied with its performance. It handles winding roads like a champ, and I always enjoy driving my car. I thought that 200 horsepower was a little slow until the first time I drove my IS 250. I was greatly surprised!

The Lexus IS 250 is very reliable imo, but the back seats may be too small for car seats.

Bad model year
"small, uncomortable seats, gas guzzler. The newer models are far superior. The steering wheel was very heavy, felt like a truck, and the ride was hard"
