2009 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 6cyl 6A)


This car is my third Lexus. It has typical Lexus build quality, good exterior looks, and great brakes and handling. The car is a much more engaging drive than my ES, but not as demanding as a BMW 3. I'm averaging 27 MPG in mixed driving and thoroughly enjoy my commute now. It's quiet and comfortable, though the rear seats are just for show... no one over 12 will want to sit back there.

Best Features

Spritely handling, Build quality, Lexus customer service, and dealer experience

Worst Features

Driver footwell is too cramped by the transmission tunnel. The rear seat needs a few more inches. ECT button should be relocated to a visible position.
