Fun car but driver seat is crippling
By Alexa on


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


I have had this car for 2 1/2 years. It is a beautiful car and mine did not have any quality problems. It is fun to drive though the acceleration and cornering could be better. I usually have 1 or 2 people in the car so the tiny back seat is not an issue. Few things to be aware of: The wheel well on the driver's side is narrow and has a protuberance that forces me to sit at an uncomfortable angle. I have a hip/SI joint problem that I think the car contributed to. Second thing: Warning lights are extremely annoying -- even for something trivial like a low tire. And the low tire warning goes off a lot for silly reasons like temperature changes -- and only the dealer can turn it off

Best Features

Exterior design, electronics, nav system.

Worst Features

Use the nav system while driving. Cool it on the warning lights. Make routine service affordable ($80 for an oil change?!?) Get rid of bump in wheel well on driver's side. Fold down rear seats would make it nearly perfect.
