This car is very fun to drive. It handles nice. It has get up and go, and smooth on the highway. I have the sport package on there and I tell you what...I won't be getting rid of this car anytime soon. The backseats could use a little more room- if you need it. But if you don't then why worry about it.

Best car ever, bought new! I have a custom base (no Navigation or seat memory...) 07 IS350 w/ 23,000 miles, Red with chrome wheels and I can't stop getting compliments and stares! Every thing works perfectly, all interior/ exterior features work great. The only problem is when every I get a little scratch or something, it cost buckets of money to repair ; I repair all of them, so it looks like it's still brand new. Interior electronics are great, love them all!

That says it all. This is what my girlfriend said after I let her drive it home one night. She LOVES this car. So do I. So does everyone that has been in it. Stylish, performance, technology and elegance all combined into one extremely well designed automobile. We are moving abroad and have to put her up for sale ... already sad to see her go. My girlfriend wants to ship it to Australia instead of letting me sell it. If the steering wheel were not on the other side over there, I would. Lexus Service is simply second to none - I actually liked going to the service center! Always got a new loaner Lexus for service and they detail your car and top off your gas tank each visit.

What a car. Traded an 05 BMW m3 that was in the shop 7 times after only 26k miles. This Lexus is just as fast but more comfortable and has better interior and ergonomics almost 2 years and has been trouble free. I enjoy the fact that I can just drive and not repair. Backseat is a little tight but I do not use them. Good performance from the engine but still gets good gas mileage.

This is an outbound review of my car which is due back after almost 3 yrs of leasing. I'm still in love with the car's stunning looks, performance and reliability. I never gave the IS250 a chance and now, after 3 yrs of higher insurance premium and lower MPG I wonder if the extra $6000 on the MSRP were worth spending.

I really love the exterior design of this car. Probably one of the best looking cars ever. The interior is immaculate, everything flows and the touch and feel says 'solid and upscale'. The 350 is like a gazelle ready to spring. The IS-f must be a cheetah then. Immaculate build quality and leading edge technology keeps this machine running with the pack even after 3 years.

I bought the car about 18 months ago and it still brings a smile to my face. I think it is a nice combination of luxury and performance. The 306 hp engine still amazes me that this much power comes from a V6 without the aid of turbos. The performance will surprise you. The car is comfortable, and I couldn't be happier with the Mark Levinson stereo/DVD player. It has to be one of the best factory stereos I have heard to date. The backseat is cramped but I hardly ever use it. The ride is comfortable but still sporty. If you are looking for pure sport then you may not be happy. This car has a nice overall feel for everyday driving, with plenty of sportness to bring on the smile.

A great car that combines luxury with sportiness. 306 horse power and still making 24.5 avg. MPG is pretty nice. Fun to drive and handles well. A great bargain compared to BMW where leather and navigation are options. This car is built and designed very well. No regrets with this purchase.

I love this car. It has all the bells and whistles or a luxury performance car has to have. Corner steering and high speed braking is next to none. Response to speed is also something that wowed me. Steptronic transmission makes it a much more fun to drive. Navigation system rolled out is the best and map light design is with driver in consideration.

The vented front seats seem to have little effect for cooling. Don't spill anything on the vented seats. It may be absorbed into the seat. The stock stereo has a very good midrange, but the base can be boomy and distorted. The ride is kind of odd. I feel the road and the bumps, yet I feel uninvolved. There is significant understeer at decent speed. The VDIM is intrusive, kicking in well before there is any real danger of anything. The VDIM can only be turned off by holding the off button for 7 seconds when the car is not moving. Very annoying. If you have any back pain, even rarely, driving this car can be hellish. I used to love driving. I expected I would be happier with this car.

The beefy 306 HP engine & excellent handling make the IS 350 super fun to drive. It's solid and quiet with amazing power. Great design both in and out. We don't even have to take the keys out of our pocket! Walk up to the car and it opens; push the button and the car starts. No more keys clinging & clanging everytime you take a sharp turn. Navigation system ties in nice with air controls, sound system, Bluetooth & the built in backup camera are super cool. Interior of the car is sweet with the maple trim and super cool dash light startup sequence. Overall, it's really a great car. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a reliable, safe, powerful and luxurious ride!

I've had my IS for about 3 1/2 months and I have to tell you that I simply love this car! It is extremely fast, yet still has that luxurious lexus ride. In my opinion it is the perfect blend of performance and luxury. The car has definitely converted me to paddle shifters as I really, really like them. Shifting is super fast and allows you to keep your hands on the wheel. I got the sport suspension package on mine and I would highly recommend that you at least test drive the car w/the sport suspension as handling is far superior to that of the standard model. Also the push button start and key fob system is pure genius! I unlock, lock and start the car w/o taking anything out of my pocket.

Really, night and day between the IS 300 which I used to own and the new IS 350. Quite a dramatic change in all aspects. Extremely comfortable with premium leather and ventilated seats for cold and hot weathers which I thought it was very nice. The Mark Levinson stereo is amazing. The V6 306HP engine hard to match and fun to drive. I feel this is the perfect car for someone who wants a sporty but yet luxurious sedan who is not afraid of the roads. I thought German cars were unmatchable until I tried this.

I like almost everything about this car. It is very fast and handles very well. By the way, my other car is a 2006 Corvette Z51. So, what I mean is that it feels almost as fast as my vette, but without all that torque. The interior is very nice and the leather feels very good. Fuel consumption isn't great. I am getting 17 MPG mainly in city driving, but I don't care about it. It's hard to get a fast car without consuming lots of gas. There are 2 problems so far. There is an annoying rattle in the dash and the front wheels get dirty really fast! I mean, all I need it to drive for 20-30 miles and they are black and dirty already. The backseats are small, but we seldom use them. Highly recommend.

Happy Motoring

Had to trade in my 328, way too many electrical problems, a BMW sorepoint . The Lexus has been bulletproof. Sure, handling is not as sharp but it rides a lot better, my wife doesnt complain on bumps anymore, actually have to fight to drive now, wish we could afford another one. Back seat is a little tight. I guess thats what the ES 350 is for. Controls and ergonomics very easy to use.

I've always wanted this car. I had a Highlander and 4Runner before but this car, I wanted it to be MY first car with my name on it. I'm so happy and glad I waited until this year to buy it. Drives amazing and stops very quickly - I've only opened it up to 100 mph so far; can't wait to open it up to 160 mph :0) I love the technology built into the car. If you're going to buy a Lexus, buy it with all the options.

This car is a blast to drive! Enough electronic gadgets to keep you entertained during the longest traffic jams and enough power to pass whatever gets in your way. I think that Lexus did an excellent job blending sport and luxury together creating a vehicle that is superior on the road. I would recommend this vehicle to anybody interested in the Infiniti G35 or BMW 3 series.

I previously had the 2007 IS 250 model for 4 months and then I sold it to my Mom who didn't care about the lack of power from that model. I am now a happy camper with the 2007 IS 350! LOTS of standard luxury features at a great value! Power is definitely not an issue with the IS 350 as was the case with the IS 250 - the power in the IS 350 is there at all speeds and RPM ranges. The brakes are also much better (and bigger) on the 350 model. Handling is good, though probably more enjoyable if equipped with the sport- tuned suspension pkg. Fuel economy has been averaging 17-18 mpg (compared to 21-23mpg with the IS 250 model). For the extra money, get the IS 350 - it's worth it in the long run!

New owner at this point. I am a driving enthusiast and chose this car for its performance and handling. In that regard, the performance and engine come across perfectly. Acceleration is awesome and handling is tight. I'm not quite sure where the "unconnected" steering criticism comes from, I feel that car is very responsive. High speed performance is particularly nice. What I was surprised about is the level of features and refinement. The car is loaded and everything feels well thought out. The primary shortcoming is in the small back seat. A car of this size could have more room.

Lexus: excellent packaging of features including superior sound system, friendly to use navigation system, bluetooth function, rear camera, satellite radio, heated and cooled front seats plus front passenger memory retention settings. Combine the above with a 306 V-6, 6 speed auto and/or sport shift with steering wheel paddles and the overall package is very appealing to enthusiasts as well as just around driving.

My car is 4 months old and it needs a new transmission already! I want Lexus to buy this car back from me! What else can I say about the car? My other car is a BMW 3 series and there are a lot of thing BMW does better than Lexus. Lexus not remembering the seat settings when you open the car is lame. Not being able to use the nav while driving is lame (my passenger wants to use it, Lexus!). The clearance in the driver's seat is too small. For some reason, the passenger's seat has more headroom. Not providing a full sized spare is a cop out. My car has the sports package and I have to say that the 'aluminum trim' on the console should be aluminum and not grey plastic.

The Lexus IS 350 is a great performance car, but if you want a spacious ride this car is not for you. I am 6'3" and if I have the driver's seat as far back as possible I will not fit.

The car handles like a dream and looks great sitting in the driveway or crusing on the highway. The brutal acceleration on this car is simply astounding.

Despite tough competition, there simply isn't a better car for the money. I spent months looking at the competitors. The performance of this car will knock your socks off, it's just a thrilling car to drive. A test drive in the pouring rain sold it for me. The advanced electronics keep the car on track even when pressed hard in the rain, yet you feel totally connected to the road. The build quality is tops and Lexus has been attentive to every detail. It's a beautiful powerhouse, with the best navigation system out there. Everyone that gets in my car drools, it's just that nice. The paddle shifters in this car trump much of the competition as there are dedicated up and down shifters.

My wife and I spent a lot of time researching and test driving cars before making this purchase. When we started the search, she had her heart set on a 3 series BMW. We drove all of the usual suspects on several occasions before narrowing it down to the BMW 330i and the Lexus IS 350. Because my wife spends most of her day in the car, comfort was a big factor. The Lexus blows away the competition when it comes to interior design, style and quality. It is evident the second you get in. Lexus takes interior comfort seriously. As far as driving, this car is awesome. 300+ HP and a sport package makes it really fun on back roads. I recommend this car to anyone I talk to.

The 2007 IS 350 is worth every penny. It out-performs the competition in speed, handling, comfort, and design. It is a joy to drive 40 miles to work every day. This car is by FAR the most bang for your buck anywhere in a car at this price point. The cabin is quiet. The ext and int design is sexy & sleek. The fuel economy is amazing for a 310hp engine. And you can't find many cars that burn the road like this puppy. The speed paddles are a joy to use, and the overall build quality of the car is unsurpassed. If you are going to buy a car in this class, this is the one to buy, bar none.

I just picked up my 2007 IS 350 (Black Saphire Pearl) with DVD + ML, 18" Wheels. It is an absolute pleasure to drive. My earlier sports sedan was a 2001 Audi S4. The Audi is an excellent vehicle, but did not have the refinement of the Lexus. For the money -- the Lexus has the performance, refinement, and build quality. For the money this is an oustanding value.

I have owned my IS 350 now for one week. This has certainly been the best car that I have ever owned. Having test driven the usual suspects looking at the major features of a car, I found a few differences that really swayed me towards the Lexus. One major part of my decision was the interior of the car. The Lexus interior completely impressed me with the luxury, the fit and finish, the quality of materials, comfort and the appearance. The interior is the one area where the Lexus was in a class of it's own compared to all others.

Great car, PERIOD! Style, comfort, and performance all in one package for a price even some of us military folk can handle. There is no need to go for all the extras. Didn't go with the navigation package with the super stereo and back up camera. The stock sounds are great, the nav package is over-priced, and a back up camera? This car is made to go in one direction, and FAST. Great acceleration! Tight steering with good feedback. Even if you are not in the market, you owe yourself a test drive in this car, what a blast!

This is a great car! The only downside is that it's no BMW. I traded a BMW in for this knowing that the ride would be a lot more "soupy" than that of the tightness of a BMW and I am a little disappointed I was right. The car itself though is all LEXUS and is a fastastic car from a reliability and creature comfort standpoint. When I am not driving fast and weaving in and out of traffic I am glad I bought it. If Lexus wants to truly go after the 3 Series consumer they will have to find a way to make the car "harder" with regard to responsiveness and road affect.

Reasonable car

This car is for my wife. Got it for about a week. Bought it for Lexus reliability, good performance, good handling from rwd, and good review. The car does fly fast, stable, and offer comfortable seats. I feel the rear seats are reasonable size for me (5'8") and my kids. I do not know why Lexus put such a lousy stock stereo in such a nice car. My wife has no interested to spend additional $3000 to upgrade the stereo and a few other luxury add-on. We have not got used to the keyless entry yet. It causes us a bit stress.

The Beginning of a Great Relationship

My wife and I purchased the new '07 metallic black with black interior IS 350 and are absolutely thrilled with not only the car, but the customer service that Lexus is recognized for. We were between the car we purchased and the BMW 330. We truly enjoyed both cars, but when it came to comfort, style and functionality the Lexus outperforms. The BMW is your ultimate sports sedan, it handles and brakes better than the IS, however, the navigation system is terrible, the seats are uncomfortable and there is a little drag off the line. Our 350 wants to eat more pavement and push even faster when cruising along at 80 or 90 mph. When I buy a German car it will be a Porsche, everyone has a BMW

A very nice daily drive car...

I just picked up my 07 IS 350 w/X Package and I am impressed. Car is very well optioned at a fractional price compared to my other car E55. Lots of power for such a small car, Navigation is superior over the Benz's one. A fun car to beat around on a daily basis. Highly recommend the X- Package for anyone who is looking into getting the IS 350.

Great car for the money

The IS 350 has everything you could want in a car - speed, looks, and luxury - all for a great price. A comparable 3 series would cost thousands more, and in my honest opinion, this car trumps the BMW in both exterior and interior quality. I purchased one in Obsidian black and I still can't take my eyes off it. Trust me -- this car is worth every penny.
