My IS 250 now has 18,000 miles on the odometer. I previously reviewed the car at 11,000 miles. I have not had any further problems with the car and have taken it in for routine oil changes and maintenance only. I am pleased to report that at 18,000 miles the brake pads are still good and the original tires have plenty of tread left. I am getting an overall average of 27 mpg according to the onboard computer. On the highway the average gas mileage is 33 to 34.
Keyless ignition. Good gas mileage. Comfortable leather interior. Lexus reliability.
The 2007 models can be ordered with the backup camera as part of the navigation system. You cannot see the rear fenders from the driver's position. I backed up into a post at the airport because rear visibility is so poor. A backup camera should be standard on this vehicle for safety reasons.
