    My car

    I use to own a IS200 Sport and always wanted a little bit more power. Then IS300 is just the ticket and offered me everything I want and need in a car.

    The dealership is just excellent and the car wonderful to drive and own. The specification level, when compared to other similarly priced cars, is just great. I gave now had three of these cars and can't want to test drive the new model due out later on in the year.

    The only downside to owning such a car is the fuel eccomony. I often get asked by other drivers (like BMW owners) whats it's like, I just smile and say just wicked. I always find a excuse to drive the car and or take the long way home.

    My car

    Narrow boot opening makes loading a bit difficult. Very juicy considering the prices of fuel these days. Otherwise, a lovely car to own and drive. Still better looking than the rivals.

    My car

    Very confortable to drive, a real head-turner, loads of features as standard. The only down side is the high running costs and although the car has a lot of power sometimes you have to really work it hard to get there.

    My car

    Mr Jones (Neath & Port Talbot) I totally agree with you regarding the Lexus IS200. The car is owned by my father, however I do almost all of the driving in it and unfortunately we do not agree with the almost unanimous opinion of the superiority of Lexus.

    The car is now just four years old (33k miles) and the amount of work that has been done on it is as follows. Some of it was covered under warranty so of course there was no charge. It has had two CD players, a new battery, two sets of rear discs (cosmetic reasons), and a new full set of alloy wheels (one of the replacements had to be replaced as the tyre couldn't be balanced properly!) At the first MOT the nearside front wishbone required replacing - pretty bad on a well looked-after/driven car don't you think?

    Again, couldn't recommend Lexus to a friend.
