2006 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

This is not my first Lexus, but it certainly will be my last. The performance of this car pales in comparison to my old RX 330. It hesitates when you get on it, the mpg is ridiculous for a car this size and please... never, ever try to drive it in even slightly icy conditions. The car will not stop at all from even 10 mph in low gear when there is ice. It does have its bright points. It turns very well and holds the road exceptionally at higher speeds (3 digit), but I hesitate to take it out at all in adverse conditions. A Lexus? Hardly. At least not compared to its siblings. After just a few months I am already looking to take the loss, trade it in and get a different auto altogether.

The lines and beauty of the vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

How about a light in the trunk for starters? Next lets work on the gas mileage, hesitation and traction.
