- looks awesome inside and out
- very noisy when car is not moving! very disappointing customer service when told about problem
We've had this car for over 8 months now - we purchased it end of may 2006. After doing months of research, we finally decided on the is350 because of how it looks, who made it, and on paper, it's features just sounded really good. Several months ago though, we started noticing that the car just sounded loud when it wasn't moving - like on a stoplight or simply before we would turn the engine off before we'd get out of it. We've mentioned it twice when we'd take the car for service - 1st they said they didn't hear what we were saying, the next time, they said they now know what we were talking about but can't really do anything about it. It was the fuel injector is what was making the noise they said. We called corporate about it and we were basically pushed aside here and there...maybe thinking that we would just drop it and disappear...until finally we were told that it is what it is (the whole trying to get a hold of someone from corporate who would give us answers took over a month and all we got was - sorry that's how the car is).
To tell you more about the sound...it is, to me, like a noisy engine sound. My husband calls it diesel-engine like - almost like a constant rattling or knocking. It is very annoying because that is not how it was when we first bought it - defintely NOT!
So buyer beware! I don't think this is what you expect of a typical lexus...it certainly is not what we expected in terms of quality.
