Best car ever, bought new! I have a custom base (no Navigation or seat memory...) 07 IS350 w/ 23,000 miles, Red with chrome wheels and I can't stop getting compliments and stares! Every thing works perfectly, all interior/ exterior features work great. The only problem is when every I get a little scratch or something, it cost buckets of money to repair ; I repair all of them, so it looks like it's still brand new. Interior electronics are great, love them all!
Harmon Kardon Radio, heated/ventilated seats, auto climate and moon roof.
Chrome wheels should not chip after just a few years. I'm going to deal with it until it is really noticeable, to when only half of the wheel is shiny chrome. And the offset tires are a pocket full of money to change every 12,000-18,000. I hate the tires, but it is a small price to pay for an amazing car! I don't like how when you turn the wheel, it doesn't turn back like it does on say..a Buick, it stays exactly where it is until you move it. Kind of a pain when your in tight places such as a parking lot. MOST DEFINITELY TEST DRIVE BEFORE BUYING.
That says it all. This is what my girlfriend said after I let her drive it home one night. She LOVES this car. So do I. So does everyone that has been in it. Stylish, performance, technology and elegance all combined into one extremely well designed automobile.
We are moving abroad and have to put her up for sale ... already sad to see her go. My girlfriend wants to ship it to Australia instead of letting me sell it. If the steering wheel were not on the other side over there, I would.
Lexus Service is simply second to none - I actually liked going to the service center! Always got a new loaner Lexus for service and they detail your car and top off your gas tank each visit.
Keyless entry and not having to ever take your remote out of your pocket - love that!
Also love the technology integration of radio, navigation, climate, phone, etc. into one touchscreen ... makes Mercedes and BMW vehicles from that year look like they have 1970's technology.
None, bravo ... well, maybe add free ice cream at the dealership in addition to the delicious coffee and free donuts in the mornings.
What a car. Traded an 05 BMW m3 that was in the shop 7 times after only 26k miles. This Lexus is just as fast but more comfortable and has better interior and ergonomics almost 2 years and has been trouble free. I enjoy the fact that I can just drive and not repair. Backseat is a little tight but I do not use them. Good performance from the engine but still gets good gas mileage.
Styling, dependability, 27 mpg on the freeway @ 75 mph.
This is an outbound review of my car which is due back after almost 3 yrs of leasing. I'm still in love with the car's stunning looks, performance and reliability. I never gave the IS250 a chance and now, after 3 yrs of higher insurance premium and lower MPG I wonder if the extra $6000 on the MSRP were worth spending.
The powerful engine, looks, handling and reliability. Keyless entry and ignition, smart HIDs
I can't seem to find a comfortable position for the driver's seat. Off size tires are expensive since you can't rotate them.
