Both are good cars, they just cost too damn much to buy, insure, maintain, etc.

I would get the Acura TSX. The Acura would have cheaper parts than the Lexus and probably cheaper to insure. They have amazing manual transmissions which you should get unless you physically aren't able. It's easy to learn. But if you really just want a boring appliance the GS is better than the IS because it's more roomy. If you're wanting to spend around $10k you could look at the Infiniti M45 from '03-'04. Just look for something that's been well-maintained and it should treat you well.
