    2016 Lexus RC 200t - Base

    Have had the car for less than two months and 500 miles. Pros: Fun car to drive; beautiful exterior and interior; comfortable front row seating: great sound system: safety features such as cross traffic warning; free navigation system for one year. Cons: Cramped back seats; somewhat challenging syncing process with Pandora, I heart radio. I really love this car. The beautiful infrared color is an eye catcher.

    2003 Lexus SC 430

    Long Term Review - SC430

    Pros: Bullet-proof reliability

    Cons: Seating and performance

    Wanted a 'sports coupe with some luxury'. It delivered somewhat on the luxury, but 'sport' is nowhere to be found in the SC430. Floaty suspension, numb handling, terrible throttle response, and quite possibly the worst seats offered by a premium make. Rear seat should be removed - really only a package shelf. Anemic engine output for such a heavy car. Overall, a reliable but unfulfilling ride.

    2005 Lexus SC 430 - Base

    Pros: Convertible

    Cons: Quality issues will be not be resolved and honored by the Lexus teams.

    Advice: Do Not buy Lexus.

    I will never buy a Lexus again. I will reccommend to my friends NOT to buy a Lexus either! The reason, the warranty! I had the brand new vehicle for 3 months off the show room. Since day one, it could not start on its own. The batterry was never recharged after I drove it or let the car run for 30 minutes. When I brought it to the Lexus dealer in Wilmington, Delaware, they said my IC computer was fried and it was not a warranty problem. Needless to say, this will be the last Lexus that I own. Be sure that everyone I know will know of this Lexus quality problem.

    2004 Lexus SC 430 - Base

    Pros: Ride comfort

    Cons: Sub par road performance

    Advice: Its a luxury car plain and simple

    I was in the market for a second car for use of as a daily driver, test drove the car mulitple times, unique looks and a very comfortable ride and car is very well put together, but it is NO sports car. Car understeers a good deal under less than moderate driving, it also has a mushy road feel and quite a bit of bodyroll when lane changing. Engine has good power tho car never seems to lose that luxury car feel.

    2003 Lexus IS 300 - Auto Sedan

    Pros: Sporty handling that hugs the road

    Cons: Hesitation Problem with the Transmission

    Advice: DO NOT BUY - Lexus is not willing to stand behind their product

    The handling is extremely capable for sporty driving and the brakes are unrivaled. The power is adequate and smooth, though it tends to lug a little at lower RPM's. The E-shift allows only limited control over shifting (gears 2-5) and far too often down-shifts on its own. A HESITATION PROBLEM occurs in many IS300's as a result of the vehicle's ICU (onboard computer) malfunctioning -- a major issue considering it is not detectable during the initial test drive, gets progressively worse, and according to Lexus, is not correctable.
