2006 Lexus IS 250 AWD Certified Review
By Brian on


2006 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)


Paid $26k for AWD, Certified, with 30k miles. This is my first car ever purchased. This is a sexy, fun to drive car. The selection process is simple. Pick your power 200hp or 300hp, Navi/No Navi & pick your colors. Many safety features the average Joe wouldn't notice. Bad posture & fat rear/gut = car seems small Common problems that have solutions: -Small back seat - buy a GS -Brake dust - low dust ceramic pads -Horse power - give up AWD for IS350 RWD & 100H

Best Features

Paddler shifters, fuel efficiency 28- 30 mpg, 6 disc changer heated & cooled seats, ECT modes, AWD, rims, self tinting mirrors, seat pass- through, trunk tie downs, system check monitors, front lamps light up surrounding lanes of traffic, exterior sensing lights, vanity mirrors for the misses

Worst Features

-Remove Ash tray in center console & and in back seat -A very loud crack noise happens when the dash expands and contracts,(just mine?) -Little tough to see out the back with with the headrests. -Paddle shifting lag is a bummer

That's I feel like about that car too and love it! Except the maintanance is getting quite expensive - had to change brake pads and even front brake rotors. "A very loud crack noise happens when the dash expands and contracts,(just mine?)" - this is the most annoying thing about this car. I had it fixed once as they kept my car for a week to figure it out (of course, loaner provided). But then eventually it came back - also seasonal NE weather doesn't do good to the plastics...
