Great Car at a Great Price
By jherb350 on
2006 Lexus IS 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I've had this car since it came out & am very impressed over the last 3 yrs. The car rides nice with smooth acceleration. There is a lot of power on tap when you need it. MPG range from high teens to low 30s depending on driving habits, I am getting 25 mpg overall. One drawback is small rear seat. You can fit 4 adults for short distances, or small kids out of car seats. The trunk opening is small but, you could fit 3 sets of clubs in the car with some ingenuity. The seats are very comfortable & the leather holds up well with maintenance. If you have the optional 18 inch wheels they can not be rotated because they are staggered. The stock tires lasted 30k miles for me, rated at 15k.
The power of the 3.5 liter V6, 306HP. 30 MPG cruising at 75mph or 15 MPG racing stop light to stop light. The car just looks great from every angle.
Do something about the the pearl paints. Mine showed many stone chips within the first couple of months, Blue Onyx Pearl (discontinued color. Increase rear leg room by an inch or 2.
