2009 Lexus IS 350new Lexus Driver - Maryland07/20/2010
IS 350: Lots of fun to drive. With the traction control "adjustments" available to the user, like turning it off if/when you want, the vehicle is almost like owning 3 cars: luxury sedan, sports sedan, sport car. Turning trac off is that noticeable in response to the accelerator. It's also noticeable in the fuel consumption.
That's the one negative, is the IS 350 can gulp down the gasoline. If this is your primary commuter car, be prepared. Using fuel saving techniques, like driving the speed limit, I get upwards of 27mpg. Leaving the vehicle in "sport mode" and leaping around the highway, maybe 19mpg.
Also, the back seats are not that small. I took 3 peole from my job out to lunch and two women sat in the back with no problems at all. Maybe if you're 6'+ tall, then it might start to get cramped back there.
Also, buying the vehicle used saved me some depreciation on the vehicle. I highly recommend that route, unless you're willing to "pay" a 15% premium for a new car when you drive it off the lot.
Love the IS just not this one

I purchased this car 5 days ago and returned on 4-8-13 due to loud wind noise and a rough loud ride. This car is not Lexus worthy, I cant believe that none of the issues I returned it for were addressed. I do plan on purchasing another IS350, but it will be certified through a Lexus Dealer
Well built car.. fast and fun to drive..
