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


I was a happy owner of an IS 300. I couldn't wait for the new ISes to come out in AWD because I go skiing up in VT all winter. Why, why why did Lexus make the IS 250 only 204hp???? It's less than its predecessor the IS 300 and weighs close to 500bls more. This car is very slow off the line and is out performed by every car in its class. If you don't have to drive in the snow then the IS 350 is the car you want. You will be disappointed with the acceleration of the IS 250, unless you don't care about that of course.

Best Features

Great style and reliability to come to expect with a Lexus.

Worst Features

Terribly underpowered... The IS2 50 should have the Horsepower its name says... 250hp!, not 204hp! what a mistake...
