2008 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6A)
Bought the car a week and a half ago and really like what the car has to offer. Test drove a 335i sedan, infiniti g37, and an acura tl and tl type s. Went with the Lexus due to interior quality and richness and value compared to the bimmer. Coming from an Acura TL, the learning curve on using the nav system is huge. Toyota (Lexus) can learn quite a bit from how Honda (Acura) has implemented their nav interface. Drives like a charm, although I wish the steering would tighten up a bit at highway speeds. It would be nice to deactivate VSC and TCS while driving instead of bringing the car to a stop first. There is definitely room for improvement on the car. Fix the nav operation, add mem seats!
Cooled seats, gas mileage (getting 30.8 according to onboard computer (mostly highway) ), stunning looks, the revving gauges at startup
Ability to use Navi in it's entirety while in motion, coin holder(s), bigger cup holders, rear leg room, adding a few more horsepower and torque (240 hp and 235 lb/ft) would make it an ideal car while returning great gas mileage. Please add memory seats to the premium package. Hard drive based nav
