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
Exterior design, electronics, nav system.
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.
