Great Car for Me
By SteveM on


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


I read how the IS 250 was "underpowered" and that I should go drive the BMW 325XI, so I did, and I still bought the IS. Main reason was the quiet interior and how I could enjoy the ride and sound of the audio system together. I also test drove both cars at dusk into night, and found the red dash and info center of the BMW very hard to read. The car surpasses all my expectations on comfort and handling. As for being "underpowered" it's more than enough car for me, looking down at the speedometer on the interstate and seeing 80 without even knowing it amazes me. The handling on our local back roads is also a great experience. One more thing, it was $4,000 less than a similar BMW.

Best Features

iPod/mp3/aux jack, moonroof, dual climate control system, AWD

Worst Features

Power jack in center console, can only be used if the top is left open. Brighter interior/trunk lighting
