Dear Lexus -- Try Again
By valueApe on


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


I'd have to say bucket on this one. The car's got nice curb appeal and looks quite proper once you hop in, but the experience, or perhaps the expectation of the experience, declines rapidly as the odometer ticks away the uncomfortable, annoying, and ever less invigorating miles.

Best Features

Exterior styling. UnBangled (see BMW) lines though decidedly a tad Civic-y. Front seat can handle humans from 4 feet to 8 feet tall? Good feature if you need it. Decent power. Reasonable brakes and suspension if you can override the electo step mother nesting in the dash.

Worst Features

Paddle shifter response makes me feel I should be paying postage. When car is pushed, VDC overplays Boy Scout. Buckboard seats with marginal lumbar support. Don't unfasten seatbelt without earplugs. Push button ignition really neat...once. Console too high for comfortable driving.
