Excellent choice without navigation
By Barry on


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


Great car packed with amenities, exceptionally smooth driving, fun to drive in manual mode with paddle shifters. I recommend the all wheel drive version for superb handling. All controls such as audio, climate and navigation are easy to use with the touch screen. Very economical on gas 22.8 city driving and 32.5 on a short 200 road trip. My only complaint is the navigation system, I don't feel it is Lexus's place to decide when I or my passenger can use the system, it greys out and can't be used while in motion no other automakers that I'm aware of do this. IMO don't buy the navigation sysem until Lexus changes their policy.

Best Features

Cooled seats,back up camera,great fuel economy, integrated XM, paddle shifters.

Worst Features

Navigation is not acceptable. You or your passenger can not use the system while moving and no ability to override system as in the past. Acura navigation amoung others much easier to use and will allow use while in motion
