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


I purchased my car used,.w/approx 39,000 miles on it. @ 42,000 problems started. The battery is NEW but one time the door would not open. Once I got it open w/the key, it wouldn't start. Had to get a jump, Lexus dealer could not find problem. a Few times, I've had to push the start button several times to get it started. I'm going to replace the battery anyway. Brakes sound like an old wooden ship. Pads and whatever have been replaced. Door hesitates to open at times. acceleration poor. My confidence in this car is shrinking.

Best Features

body style, ride. side mirror defoggers.

Worst Features

Impossible to see center console panel display unless it's dark outside. Drives me crazy! Can't see settings at all! Difficult to see dashboard instr. panel because steering wheel blocks it. One cup holder is stupid. Improve acceleration power and horsepower. 204 Hp for this car is lam

if acceleration is a concern then the 300hp is350 probably would have been a better option
