Sleeper Hit
By Mr Piccolo on


2010 Lexus IS 250 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6A)


For me, the real decision was between this and the G37. I really want the G37 performance and styling. But to get the same features the IS250 provides the G37 is at least $5k more at MSRP. No one pays MSRP, but that's huge difference before we even start haggling! Is 100 hp worth $5k? Possibly but that's at least $100/mo more - eep. But I got a screamer of a deal (less than this website shows for invoice) at 2.9%. With only ~220 miles I'm already averaging 26 mpg in the city - pretty good for car not broken in yet. The car looks much better in person than in pictures. Not sold on the rear, but front and side have nice curves. This car is plush, smooth and is just all around awesome

Best Features

Inside trim is gorgeous! The turning radius is insanely precise. Takes 50 mph turns like they're 25 mph. The ride is silky smooth. The keyless entry is the epitome of laziness. The dashboard controls are stylish and functional. The dual-tone leather trim is just sexy. Great safety features.

Worst Features

Needs more horsepower/torque! Seriously, how can you have RWD car and be so low on HP/ft-lbf? The power curve doesn't seem to be so bad, so I'll try putting on a F-Sport/K&N air filter for some cheap HP.
