I used to be a Subaru Outback driver. I owned two of them consecutively. However, when it came time to car-shop, my husband told me to check out the Lexus IS 250. I have never loved a car the way I love this one. The fun of driving it, the pick-up, the envious glances I get make it that much more enjoyable to own. I am a Realtor, so the GPS is especially helpful. The car is gorgeous, but even more important, it is sturdy, solid, and offers real value for the money. Handles very well. I feel very safe in this car. When I was pricing it out compared to other makes and models, it was actually a bargain, given the features I got. And I need AWD. I highly recommend this car!

Some blind spots make it a little difficult to see for lane-changing. I would probably work on that.
