Completely Satisfied

Vehicle

2008 Lexus IS 250 Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I test drove this car expecting to not be impressed and I was completely wrong. It looks great, feels great, is very luxurious, and has a lot more pick- up speed than the 250 suggests. I couldn't believe what the base model came with. The comperable BMW didn't even have leather and you had to pay a significant amount more for basic features.

2008 IS 250 AWD (6A)

Excellent car. Really hugs the road, quick acceleration (not as peppy as the 350, but enough for a 36 year old). I was in the market for a "Certified Pre-Owned" 2006 or 2007, and ended up getting a new one for a few thousand more. Tells me they keep their resale value moreso than others I compared it to.

Fun to drive

I looked at the Mercedes c300 first but opted for the IS 250 instead. I have owned the IS 250 for 2 months now and the car is fun to drive. The 250 does get good gas mileage also. Rear seat legroom is minimal. One drawback is the paint. Already chipping on the front. I've owned other cars for years before the painted started to chip.

Perfect daily driver. Quick, quiet, nimble ride. All-leather cabin is sumptuous and extremely comfortable. Much nicer than BMW in this price class.

Great Overall Car and Value

2008 Lexus IS 250 Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Wonderful car all around. I added the HID headlights, XM radio, vent seats, and wood trim. The base models come pretty well loaded. While not a pure sports car, it has found a perfect balance between luxury and sportiness. The ride is as quiet and smooth as can be. When you test drive it, be sure to take in on some bumpy roads. You will feel the difference. I am 6'1" and still fit comfortably into the front seats. No one can fit into the back seat behind me though. The trunk, while not very big, was able to fit my ice hockey goalie equipment. I also test drove the Mercedes 300, BMW 325XI, loaded '08 Honda Accord V-6 Coupe among others. In my opinion, the best value for your money.

Before this purchase, I was also researching the Acura TSX. The Lexus got me hooked. Great ride, good power, and awesome styling. There is nothing on the road that looks like it! A lot of standard features including high ticket safety items that are optional on other makes.

Great overall car, highly suggested

Review

For the price of a base, it's a great overall value for a luxury vehicle. I purchased only the leather package with automatic. Handles well, lovely interior (doesn't feel like plastic) which is important for me. I take clients out in this vehicle with good overall feedback. Base sound system is decent, includes as base a 6CD changer. Previous car was a Acura 3.2TL with a premium package; only difference I've found is that the Lexus handles better, smaller and maneuvers like a small car.

Sweet deal

Review

I can't say I've ever owned a BMW or Audi (though I have driven them), so take note. I can say, however, that I love the IS 250 AWD. Looks great on the inside and the outside and drives well too. It may not be the 500HP BMW M5, but it has zip and the handling is phenomenal. The fuel economy is a bit on the low side, at about 22MPG for my driving. In extended highway driving (even avg. 90MPH) I've gotten the avg. up to 27.5mpg, so I think that the 26MPG # is a bit low. No complaints so far... except that it's too damn much fun to drive.

I love everything about this car. The base model is loaded and I only upgraded the wheels, headlights and added a spoiler. I purchased the Matador Red and it's just sexy. I look forward to my drive to work now!
