The IS 250 is a fun car to drive. The auto handles well, even at high speeds, and has a nice feel and response. Excellent brakes. The ride is plush and very pleasing. I like the paddle shifts on the steering wheel. The heated and ventilated seats work well in cool weather. I have not tired during the summer season. The shape of the car is exciting. Love all the angles.
The seats, soft leather, and the fit and finish are above average. The car's audio(stereo) system is one of the best in its class. The display is bright and well laid out.
A full size spare would be nice. Fold down rear seats would be an asset. A nice tint on the front window.
