"I own a 2007 (essentially identical to the '08). I bought it in California and had it shipped to Maryland, as the East Coast did not get any of the special magnetic sports handling cars. What a joy to drive, tight, superb handling (I sold my Corvette C6 to buy this one), no rattles or any trouble at all after 13K miles. My mileage averages about 26 in city/suburban driving, and up to 31 for long highway drives. For a car so lightning fast, this is tremendous gas mileage. The trunk is small but not tiny, and we don't take 4-person week-long trips, so that has not been a problem. The best car I have ever owned."
"I was reluctant to buy this car due to the price vs gas saving. I am VERY happy that I spent the extra money. Sure, I only get slightly better mpg (5-10ish) but I'm taking baby steps away from my sports car to help our environment. This car GREAT acceleration and handles beautifully. I hardly notice it's not my old sports car. Thanks Lexus!"
