Turn in the mirror and fix navigation.

2018 Lexus IS

The navigation system does not work well with voice activation. I have had it is three times am leading and had only been 6 months. Now there is an engine problem. As for the design. The cup holder is not placed well for the driver and the side mirrors need to have a mechanism for turning in. Not just my hand. I already crashed one of mine.

Great looking Lexus with red interior.

2018 Lexus IS

I love how my car sounds. You can make it sound loud or little to no sound and have a silent ride. I love the red interior on my car and looks great w it being a dark grey color. The bucket seats are very comfortable. The only problem I have with it are the cup holders they are too far back for me to reach and can be a hassle sometimes.

Fun zippy car but also very safe .

2018 Lexus IS IS 300

Very zippy and easy to get into parking spaces .I love the easy drive and even handles well in the rain. Love the safety features. Nice sound system. I have not had any issues but sometimes the AC could be cooler. Very good visibility. The seats are very comfortable and drives like a sports car .
