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


I traded in a 2005 Acura TL for the Lexus. I feel like I've from cream to half&half. Don't get me wrong, this is a very good car, and it was the AWD at a reasonable cost that sold me. The interior is beautifully well crafted, but not as ergonomically friendly as the Acura. You feel more road irregularities, but if were expecting not to you bought the wrong car. My biggist gripe (and I hate to keep comparing the TL) is the Manual/Sport shift. Nowhere near as seamless as the Acura. Even worse is when you move your shifter over into that mode, the default gear is 4th - rather than the gear you were in. Pretty abrupt if your in 6th, which this car has you in most of the time.

Best Features

The car itself is gorgeous and a head turner.

Worst Features

The Sport Shift.
