6-Speed Manual is Great
By jthoms22 on
Vehicle
2008 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)
Review
Have seen some bad reviews of manual trans - I think it is excellent through the first four gears, with just 5th and 6th being a bit rope-a-dope to get there. And the manual really makes the engine come alive. Also, i am comparing to a 2008 328i BMW, and a 2004 Honda S2000 - Honda the best obviously, but I would say IS 250 trans better than 328i.
Favorite Features
Rev-happy engine, manual trans, very good handling, intuitive features and controls, very good ride, comfortable seats, good steering feel for most driving.
Suggested Improvements
Handling and steering certainly could be dialed up a couple of degrees for really spirited driving. A few more horsepower, a slightly bigger back seat, and memory seats and mirrors in basic premium package.
