2008 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6A)


I've had this car for 1 month and it's been a blast to drive. I really like the interior and exterior styling and it has a very smooth ride to it. I looked at the G-35 and BMW 325 but you get more for the dollar on the lexus IS 250. Never really paid attention to Lexus before, but this is a great quality car. 31.7 MPG highway and 26 mixed. A 15 min test drive is not enough as I had to go back to drive it again. It took me several days to get used to driving this car.

Best Features

cooled/heated seats, good factory sound system, sharp turning radius for u-turns, excellent handling, responsive acceleration and great fuel economy.

Worst Features

Needs to be a bit more responsive on acceleration starts but once you are moving acceleration is impressive. Brakes are a bit grabby. Blind spots are a problem plus it could use rear fold down seats.
