2009 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)
Review
I've owned this car since it first came out. Picked it up at the end of December 2005. The interior looks and feels great (but it's still not Audi in terms of physical feel). The seats look great and feel soft to the touch. However, after more than 45 minutes, they are so soft that your rear begins to ache as you can somewhat feel the metal platform underneath. They definitely need to take some cues from Germany. Nav system is very easy to learn and use, but like many others, you can't use it while moving. Interior lighting with LED accents is still state of the art.
Favorite Features
Great nav system with hi-res screen, great low-light backup camera, beautiful dash and gauges, nice keyless solution including touch sensitive handles. Great looking from front and sides (not rear). Controls and usability are kept clean due to touch screen.
Suggested Improvements
Engine is way too small for the price. This car is a dog. Even if you wanted to spend the money, you can't get to the 300hp engine without giving up AWD which is a problem in the NE. Rear seats and trunk are extremely tight. HID headlamps not standard
