Way below expectations

2007 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6A)
This car has single handedly deteriorated my impression of Lexus quality. My car has 1800 miles and has had to have the brake pads replaced due to excessive/constant squeeling after normal, flat terrain driving. The front dash has an irritating popping noise constantly that sounds like expansion which I'm told is normal and to simply accept it and we had to bring it in twice to try to find/address a rattling noise in the front driver dash. While the service dept is great - wouldn't it be better if I didn't have to go in unnecessarily to begin with? Very disappointed -- will likely not buy a Lexus again.
Styling - sporty, edgy design. Hot/Cold Heat/Ventilated Seats Paint - high quality, pearl paint Keyless Entry Smooth ride
Higher quality finish (eliminate the squeaks and rattles!) If there's a known problem - fix it before you sell the car! (ie. brake pads) Memory Seats iPod hookups More storage in console (remove the ash trays)
