Buy a Warranty!
By bchristianmdd on


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


This car is the "dog" of the fleet, not quick. Not for a person over 6' or fat. The best performance upgrade for this car is an IS350. I recommend an AWD model so you don't have issues with the staggered tires and rotating them. The driver's side foot well bump by the gas pedal is annoying. My car has had floor mats, steering column, sensor failures, exhaust pipe hole, most recently the CSP for the engine issues. $10,000 worth of issues were covered under warranty or recall. In 4 years of ownership I have only paid for typical scheduled maintenance including tires, spark plugs, and oil changes all done myself. I have paid for no out of pocket repairs in 4 years of ownership.

Best Features

Paddle shifting, puddle lights, dual chrome exhaust

Worst Features

The new F sport models are currently handling all deficiencies. Along with the new re-styled 2014 IS.
