Lexus Owner Car Reviews

2012 Lexus IS F review

So the day comes to finally get one of my dream cars; a 2011 MY12 Lexus IS F. It's absolutely immaculate on the outside, beautiful on the inside and well serviced. It couldn't have been a more perfect car for the price. I've always been a fan of fast luxury mid-sized sedans with big motors. With the IS F you get the beautiful sound of a 5...

2019 Lexus IS350 F Sport review

I was a happy, one-eyed BMW owner for twenty years but eventually became tired of the increasingly excessive service costs ($850 to supply and fit four sets of disc pads) and turned to the internet to research an alternative luxury sport ride. A 2011 Lexus IS350 looked the goods with its punchy V6 engine, pin point handling and sumptuous leather interior...

2019 Lexus UX200 Luxury EP1 review

I purchased in Sept 2019 and have done 8000kms. My UX200 is the base model with options of metallic paint and Enhancement Pack 1 (power tailgate, wireless charging, cornering lamps, headlight washers, metal scuff plates and privacy glass). Although it is a base model it is absolutely loaded to the gills with equipment. Drive-away price was around $53,000...

2010 Lexus IS F review

IS Fs fly under the radar a bit, which I like. People either don’t know about them or think they’re an IS250/350. That is also fine by me. Before the IS F, I had a Renault Megane Sport 225 Cup with some engine and suspension modifications, and it was a really fun car to drive. However, I wanted a V8 and started looking around, when the IS F caught my eye...

2011 Lexus IS350 F Sport review

I've owned this car for just over a year now, and in that time have travelled 44,000km in it. Initially I was looking into purchasing a BMW 335I, 330d, or 328i. I had my eye on a few Lexus IS250s before a friend smacked me over the head and told me that would be a mistake. He knew I had an affinity for getting into the loud pedal on occasion...

2003 Lexus RX330 Sports Luxury review

  I bought this car when it was about six months old. I wanted a car that was quiet and comfortable, but also all-wheel drive and could tow considerable loads on tandem trailers over rough, steep, boggy or rocky terrain. I knew it was a big ask of a car that most owners would probably not even take off-road, but amazingly it has handled this kind of treatment for 13 years and never ceases to amaze me...

2011 Lexus CT 200h F Sport review

Stylish and economical all rolled into one! I absolutely love my little Lexus CT. I’m currently getting about 700–750km from a tank of premium fuel (40 litres), which makes it really cheap to run around town. It has all of the usual mod-cons, luxury and comfort that I expect from Lexus: GPS, quality stereo system, really comfortable leather upholstery, quality finishes all throughout the interior, etc...

1998 Lexus GS300 review

I bought a 1998 Lexus GS300 because I wanted something different to what most people have nowadays. I see many Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas, so why not get something different and get a Lexus? I thought it would be the best car because I don't see many modified GS300s, plus it's one of my dream cars. There are many things to like about this car...

2002 Lexus LS430 review

There must have been some collective cataclysmic insanity that occurred sometime in the early naughties, whereby all carmakers decided to discard the fundamental attributes that collectively constitute a ‘motor car’ and began to produce appliances. Enviably capable, functional and appealing, but just not, well, cars anymore. Such a shame IMHO...

2008 Lexus IS250 Prestige Review

This was my first car and I was on the market for a vehicle I could use to drive to and from university and work. Originally I had intended on purchasing a performance vehicle, but the styling and luxury features of the Lexus had drawn me in. I sought specifically for a vehicle with the enhancement packages to receive the Mark Levinson sound system along with Bluetooth and sunroof...

2008 Lexus IS250 X review

We bought this, our second Lexus, with 26,000km on clock. Soon after we had the 30,000km service done we took it on a Brisbane to Melbourne return trip which was very enjoyable. We upgraded the tyres before we left as the original Dunlops were getting old and were creating a lot of noise. We replaced them with Michelins; they weren't cheap at $400 a tyre, but what a difference it has made...
