2011 Lexus IS 250 C 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Ok,I bought a Lexus IS 250c thinking is a high quality car. I should not have problems for the next ten years.i was wrong . Car makes a very annoying rattle noise from convertible top. I took the car to serramonte Lexus in Colma ,the technician said is a common problem with hard top convertibles it needs to be realingend,and put some shims to aliviate the problem,and can not guarantee it will compleatly go away. He said it will take 16 hours of labor at $175 an hour = $2,800 or more to repair.

2011 Lexus IS 250 C 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is a gentlemen's/lady's convertible. It's a Lexus with the requisite quality and service. It's fun to drive and can fit 4 people if required. It's not a race car but with the shift paddles it is fun to drive. The reliability has been excellent. If we get another I will go for the IS350C. The 250 has decent power but a little more would be nice. Overall, if you want a luxury convertible that doesn't drag your but on the pavement this car will do a nice job for you.


Best Features

It's a Lexus.


Worst Features

More power, updated computer interface.

Review

I recently had an 08 Lexus IS, and was very satisfied.
It was sold, and now have an ISC250.
What a shock.

A. The seals are falling off on the trunk and tearing at the doors.

B. Rattles and noise are extremely annoying as well.
The first week there were none, but now 6 months later, the noise is unbelievable.

Shame on Lexus for allowing so many problems to occur on this vehicle.
It seems they have cheapened the IS brand to make the ride harsher and by default ruined the ultra quiet ride you would expect in any Lexus vehicle.
Don't get me wrong, we baby our cars, and never drive on dirt etc.
So it's not like we are being excessively harsh on the car. Actually quite the opposite


Worst Features

Top issue: Noise needs to be removed from the vehicle. Lexus needs to be cognizant of road conditions and prevent noise and harsh vibration from entering the cabin in ALL their vehicle line up 2nd, Door seals need to be redesigned to preven tearing. 3. The rear trunk seal also needs to be looked at. 4. Squeaks and rattles need to be looked into.
