An excellent choice for those wanting performance and ride quality. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/07/2013. Trim: 2014 Lexus IS 250 RWD F SPORT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Excellent fit & finish. Quiet, no wind noise. Firm handling, planted in the curves. Very good visibility. Confortable seats. 2.5 v6 is adequate. Mileage is very good. Trunk space is good. Rear seat room and size is comfortable. Navigation system is quite good, and easy to operate.
Cons: The vehicle abounds with technical features and settings. The owners manual is not clear in changing the multitude of settings, configurations and applications. The F sport interior is good, but would be tight for a person of size.
Overall review: Excellent choice for drivers wanting a great handling car and a reputation for quality and reliability.

Car is not as good as previous model by Sheryl on 10/25/2013. Trim: 2014 Lexus IS 250 AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The seat is very comfortable. I love the blind spot monitor. The stereo is much better than the previous model. The car looks great too.
Cons: The acceleration is terrible. I have been driving the IS 250 for 6 years and the 2014 model has terrible pickup compared to the prior models. I have to press very hard on the gas pedal to get the car to move. I find I have to keep the car in Sport mode just to get the extra acceleration. The sport mode makes the car very stiff and it doesn't feel like a luxury car.
Overall review: Overall, I would not recommend this car. Instead, I would spend the extra money and go for the IS 350. I tried to exchange the car after driving it for one week but the cost to get out of the lease was way too expensive. Unfortunately, I rushed into getting this car and I should have done a more thorough test drive.

Yet again misses the mark and LExus downslide continues by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/29/2013. Trim: 2014 Lexus IS 350 RWD F SPORT.
Pros: I test drov ethis vehcile yesterday, the IS 350. I found the interior design and finishes to be below what I expect of Lexus. The GS350 was also on the sales floor and only a coupel grand more when you factor in the rebate, and the interior is far more sustancial. There were hard plastic srufaces in the IS350 and the finish of the plastic on the center console was deplorable. In comparison with the Cadillac ATS interior, the design of the Lexus is subpar. That said, this car drove much more quietly than did the Mercedes C350 that I drove a few moments earlier.
Cons: Interior fit and finish and design.
Overall review: Not worth the money, far nicer cars out there for this money.

Small Beast by New NY Lexus Owner on 12/09/2013. Trim: 2014 Lexus IS 350 AWD F SPORT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This car is great. I love the aggressive grill, the handling is treating improved from the old model. It's quiet, yet still sporty and everything is pretty easy to use. The LCD gauges on the F Sport are really great, I love that I can have my navigation in the gauge itself. Also, the rear seats fold down and there's plenty of cargo room. Oh I love that oil changes are at every 10k miles and I can use regular gasoline.
Cons: 1) No memory seats 2) No fog lights on the F Sport 3) The rear seat is really meant for 4 people not 5 4) The nav and audio system is glitchy as it doesn't always sync your phone and media 5) Limited vehicles with the Mark Levinson audio system 6) Not a fan of red seats (really Lexus?) 7) No heads-up display 8) Fake leather and lack of memory seats make this car feel cheap 9) Small fuel tank (same size as the Corolla) 10) No heated steering wheel (Cmon, they have this option in Canada, eh) 11) No rear side airbags (they have this option in Canada as well) 12) Nuluxe pleather stains easily
Overall review: Overall, I love the car, it's every bit a Lexus with a kick of sport. I have the 350 AWD F-Sport and I feel like this car rides on rails but the suspense is not as harsh as a BMW or MB. It's a real looker and I feel like it will last me awhile, but I'll kick myself when the new IS-F comes out :P
