Not bad, but money sapper
By mikewpu04 on


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


I had the car for a year and gladly traded it. I felt unless you have near perfect driving conditions, the car did not perform. It needed several alignments and adjustments. I had problems with the brakes at 15k. I drive in New York often but not enough to have the problems I did with the car. The interior is amazing. Very luxurious and comfortable. I felt the 250 engine to be slow, the 350 would be better. The exterior dings and chips very easily. If you like paying premium gas for a so-so drive, buy the IS.

Best Features

Slapstick, heated/AC seats, back up camera.

Worst Features

Turning radius is flat, ride is very bouncy and rough for a luxury car. AWD is marginal in snow.
