2006 Lexus IS 250

- I own an 07 Lexus IS 250. I am completely satisfied with the comfort,ride and MPG.
- What I can't stand is the brakes! They squeak! Every time I roll up to a stop my car sounds cheap!
Love the feel of the car and the way it handles around curves but the brakes are REALLY irritating, much like nails on a chalk board. I recently had my car checked for this problem but was told that it is a known problem, although not to me, and there is nothing to be done about it. I do complement Lexus of Riverside on their customer service and courtesy, they were the best I have ever experienced. But as far as the Lexus Mfg Co. I am holding reservations on such a compliment. A luxury class vehicle should not sound like Sanford & Son's car coming to a stop....read morehide

- Problems With Brakes
- "No Fix" to Break problems
I will have an arbitration with Lexus because it bugs me to buy a $33,000 car and have a squeky brakes and I was told by Lexus that there is "NO FiX" to this problem. I should have bought a Hyundai car for $10,000 and would not have this "No Fix" squeaky brakes.

- Lot of useful technologies
- Squeeky Brake Noise
I got a '06 IS250 about a year ago. Everything is great so far, except the issue with the brake's squeeky noise. Lexus Service had replaced them once for me. However, the problem still exists. I had complained a few times, but no respond from them. I wonder if there is any serious complain about this to Lexus yet....read morehide

- Styling, keyless start, manual transmission, fuel economy, dependability, XM radio, dealer service
- front wheel brake dust, small trunk
I took delivery of my specially ordered is250 6 speed manual on Oct. 2, 2006. It is tungsten pearl (silver) with luxury package, navigation system, and XM satellite radio. The car continues to exceed my expectations, which is rare in anything these days. I looked at the BMW 3 series, but neither the quality nor the dependability was there. My previous car was a 1995 Lexus SC300 with a manual transmission. It had 185,000 miles on it when I sold it, and was in great shape. The is250 gives every indication of being an even better car. I highly recommend it....read morehide

- Great fuel economy, great value, luxurious interior, push-button start, everything is great except..
- Squeaky brakes since the day I drove it off the lot!
I've had my Lexus IS 250 AWD for 2 months now and I love everything about it, except for the squeaky brakes. I've brought it to the service station about 3 times and each time they tell me that the squeaking is normal, due to the high-performance brake pads, which BTW, have 1/2 the life of regular brake pads. They told me that when brake dust builds up, which it will...A LOT on the front rims, that it causes the brakes to squeak. This is BS because the brakes squeak even when the car is squeaky clean. Other than the brakes, this car is fabulous....read morehide

- Good MPG
- Sometimes feels underpowered.
Take off the bottom of the air filter box and tape the filter to the top...homemade intake, sounds like a SUPRA ! Try at your own risk, no problems for me...had like that for 10,000 miles, and dealership didn't say anything when I took it in for service.

- good fuel economy jaw dropping good looks, great "street edge", attention grabber
- none, it is exactly what i bought it for.
This car is an absolute jewel tro drive. It has more power than the 2.5L bmw's, and even better looks. It is quick at speed, and nimble in the turns. I love the 6 speed gear box. i'm getting over 30mpg on the freeway, i love it!!

- decent fuel economy, very confortable front seats, many amenities for the price,lexus reputation
- brakes squeak, standard audio sound quality just o.k.
This is an excellent fun to drive car, i have had for 7 months now. Other than the brakes squeaking it is flawless. MUch, much better quality than the previous model, and better than any BMW, or Mercedes in it's class. Perfect balance of sportiness, and luxury. The 6-speed manual is so a short shifter, and has a high quality feel while driving, it's a very well balanced car, and lexus service is outstanding....read morehide
