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


I've had this car since it first came out and all I can say is Toyota still lives up to their reliability. They truly built this car with pride and honor. I've driven this card hard and yet she still gets on going and going. Unlike my Mercedes, I didn't have to dump money just to keep her going, and when I did have a major problem; Lexus took care of it. Lexus fixed my misfire at idle (piston rings) for free. That's an easy $2000 job. Who would do that? My car value also holds it's value pretty good in comparison to other luxury like Infiniti and BMW

Favorite Features

Everything from the interior to the exterior. I love the 12:1 compression ratio and that it gets pretty good mileage for a 2.5L V6 weighing in at 3500LB. Seriously that's an impressive powerplant that offers great performance.

Suggested Improvements

Okay one thing I didn't like is they use different tires for the front and back. Which means you can't rotate your tires...
