After 2yrs. and 30K miles
By Toydriver on


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


Great daily driver for northern climates. I love the AWD option. Goes through deep snow better than 90% of cars. Comfortable front seats (heated and air-cooled), wheel cntrls for blue tooth + stereo, hands-free Nav, and backup camera add to driving fun & convenience. Use "pwr" setting on tranny or paddle-shift for added performance; "snow-mode" for better control in slippery conditions. Ave. 25.8mpg combined city/hwy over 30K miles; and clocked 33mpg hwy on 500mi trips(very good for AWD car). Dash rattles fixed early on by dealer. Still waiting for wrnty fix to mirror vibration and rare "burnt oil" smell thought due faulty dipstick. Still good OEM tread and brake pads. Tires could be quieter

Best Features

Comfy front seats, AWD, hands-free phone connection, reliability, "solid" feel.

Worst Features

Fix the rattles in the factory first ! Softer suspension for pot-holed roads. Routine mainenance costs too much. More "back seat" leg room, without changing front seats or front room. Better quality (quieter, smoother) OEM tires.
