2007 Lexus IS 250 User Reviews
6-Speed Manual shown
- $14,464 - $15,802
- No trim specified for this review
- Excellent fit and finish.
- Maintensive intensive/expensive.
Well finished off vehicle with many features standard such as the tire pressure monitoring system, keyless entry, etc... The usual Lexus fit and finish are evident throughout. A little lacking in acceleration so you won't win any stoplight drag races, especially to the new V6 Camry. Extended highway cruising is the vehicles forte.
Maintenence will be costly, especially replacing the ultra high performance 18" tires(which almost all vehicles will have), since they cannot be rotated and will be worn by 20K. But I guess if you can afford the IS you shouldn't complain about the maintenance costs. Another potential negative about the IS is that it seems to be prone to curbing the wheels. This is probably a function of the design which places the wheels farther outboard than on most other vehicles. So be warned.
This is a small car, much smaller than the Camry/ES350, closer in size to the Corolla. The rear is designed for children, not adults. And those children should be younger than six if they are to be truly comfortable.
In short, this is the perfect car for a young couple or those young at heart with other, larger vehicles in the household.
