And I thought it was just my IS250

2006 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6A)
I took over ownership and payments for this vehicle, when my daughter lost her job. So when I started having engine problems, immediately I blamed them on my daughter's driving and lack of maintenance. Engine would overheat and the dealership took about 4 weeks to figure it out. About 3k$ later, heads, valves and the like had to be replaced. It runs fine now but, this is not the quality I expected from Lexus. I have owned Toyotas that were at 180k before a tuneup was needed. If you are looking for a dependable car, this is not it. Make sure you put repair money aside, because you will need it. I love the look and ride, but I've paid more than the expected to maintain this vehicle.
Plenty of gadgets! Backup camera, stereo, navigation system,6-disc changer, heated seats, aux connection for ipod.
Reliability under the hood and fix the brake dust issue. Better/cheaper process to upgrade the NAV system.
