2008 lexus is-f
Awesome acceleration, incredibly good brakes, fuel mileage, features and amenities, low price point compared to it's competition. Speed of transmission shifts in "manual mode" The sound of the V-8 growl! Reliability
Transmission can be rather busy at times with constant shifting when left to it's own devices. Love it or hate it styling. ride is harsh when compared to it's competitors. The ability to attract the attention of Law Enforcement with it's loud mufflers, and blistering acceleration.
Very well suited as a daily driver and all of the creature comforts one has come to expect from a Lexus brand vehicle. Very hard to beat for the money, and most have gotten this vehicle for 10k less than the MSRP price of the vehicle. This vehicle comes with so many standard options, it's almost un-necessary to add anything. even fully loaded they msrp for 62k, My OTD price fully loaded was 50k Try getting an BMW M3 for that! Not to mention a M3 fully loaded is more in the range of 75k. Is the BMW a better ALL OUT performance machine? Why yes it is... However, is it worth an extra 25K? I didn't think so. Not sure about you, but I spend way more time on the highway than on the track. And in drags I have NEVER lost to an M3. The acceleration of this vehicle is unreal! If you nail the gas in 1st gear it will liquefy the rear tires, and leave one hell of a pair of black marks when it shifts to second! Gas mileage is incredible. I average 18 around town, and 28 to 32 mpg on the highway depending on speed. At a steady 80 to 85 mph with cruise on I get 28 mpg. Slow it down to 65 mph and I get 32 mpg. That's amazing out of a 5.0L V-8.
