Just what I wanted

Had it now for two months. A trip to Florida quickly put 3300 miles on the odometer. The surprise is gas mileage. I have averaged 25+mpg overall, and the Florida trip averaged 33mpg! I would say performance is good, but it takes a heavy foot to get the revs up there for excellent acceleration. I drove a BMW325 while looking. I do not detect any better response at all while driving, and the interior quality and technological features are not even close to the IS. BMW reliability is sketchy at best, and am not interested in that. I am very satisfied with my IS!

I went to test a cert pre owned IS 250 and walked out with a lease on a new premium pkg black with tan interior, spoiler and nav. Great car. Period. The acceleration is lacking when you first get going but this car flies down the highway. No problem passing, handles like a pro. I almost feel like a race car driver and I'm not pushing the speed limit (not too much anyway). The LED headlights are sharp on this car and definitely earns her looks. Gas mileage is average for this car, no complaints.

I have a 2012 IS250 with AWD and NAV. Interior is very high quality. Seats are comfortable, although the backseat is abit tight but still comfortable. Ride is abit stiff, but handling around corners is excellent. Power steering is a little stiff for being electric, but will have the dealer look into that. Gas mileage is good for V6 (27 MPG). Very sporty looking, gets admired by other drivers.

At first I was a little reluctant of the year 2012 but it only had 50 thousand miles on it I got it from a friend so I know everything is legit I'll tell you this car is great it's not too big it's not too small it has good acceleration great handling excellent gas mileage it's really a good looking car I get excellent highway mileage 30 miles to the gallon even city is great at 2524 depending on how much I step on it.. you cannot go wrong getting this car if you have a chance to get one with 60,000 miles or less go for it you won't regret it the back seat is not that big but hey this is not a family car so deal with it. I love the fact that it's rear wheel drive and not front wheel drive that's a very rare attribute these days
