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


We leased our IS250AWD in December 2008. The navigation system is superb, we prefer it over the navigation in our Acura TSX because it signals a beep tone when turn a is approached so there's no confusion. One significant drawback for this model are the Low- Profile tires.We live in the Northeast in a larger City where pot-holes are common. In the first seven weeks we had to replace three tires due to bubbles on their side (irreparable damage, not under warranty). We estimate that over a three year lease period we replaced ca. a dozen tires on this model. Low profile tires might be suitable for a smooth rural road in the south but are not suitable for towns like Boston, N.Y. or Philly.

Best Features

Navigation Camera when in reverse

Worst Features

Unless Lexus offers this model with Regular (High-profile) tires they will loose more and more drivers in larger towns where pot-holes and rough road surfaces are the norm.
