Excellent car with minor drawbacks

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


Overall, this is an excellent vehicle. It has excellent exterior design and looks sporty yet refined. The interior is fairly comfortable for a small to average sized person. It's a very smooth and quiet ride and is very fun to drive. The 250 model lacks in power, but is surprisingly fuel efficient getting 24MPG in town and 31MPG on the highway. Mine has the navigation unit and I'm not crazy about it since the stereo and climate control are all part of it meaning you can't see your radio settings, navigation screen and climate settings all at the same time. My only other complaint is a common one. The materials they used on the dash make it high susceptible to scratching, chipping & fading.
