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

Review

Have approximately 60,000 miles on car bought new from Lexus dealer in 2006. Tires have never held pressure, always have to refill tires every month or so. Original tires had to be replaced after only 15,000 miles. Lexus was no help - claimed OEM tires were "high performance" tires. Now on 3rd set of tires. Overall build quality does not measure up to quality in Lexus models further up the food chain. Have owned 2 earlier Lexus models, this will be my last. Bought a used 2006 Infiniti M35X that now has over 130,000 miles on it with zero problems - I'm switching to Infiniti!

Favorite Features

Smooth ride, good fuel economy and quiet interior.

Suggested Improvements

Do the right thing and come clean with Lexus owners about the serious tire/wheel quality flaw. This car has serious problems maintaining tire pressure and wears out tires quickly without any aggressive driving.
