- Not only is it beautiful it has great gas milage and kicks up the speed!
- Even though I like how low the car is the front bumper is so low that I've scraped the bumper a few
I bought my IS250 about a year ago and I saw it on the road when it first came out and said thats my next car. I bought it about a year later and I still love it to this day. I get so many compliments on it and people just love the way it handles on that road. It's beautiful inside and out and runs awesome! Best car ive ever had....read morehide

- Not sure
- Rough Ride, Poor Handling, engine problems
This car is overrated! I bought it because it was cheaper than the 3-Series BMW but there is a reason why it is cheaper. The ride is really rough over roads with imperfections. The handling is problematic because the VSC interferes with the drive-ability. Now the engine is making some horrible noises! Unimpressed.
The BMW 3 Series is a much better car after driving one recently I regret not purchasing one!...read morehide

- Appearance, fuel economy, manual transmission, sound system, keyless entry and start, fit and finish
- Small trunk
My car is a special order 2007 with manual transmission, navigation, and luxury package. A lot of you note as negatives brake dust buildup and rattles. Lexus has a free fix for the brake dust, new harder pads for front, at least for 2007 model. I have had this done, and brake dust is no longer a problem. I also had multiple dashboard rattles. Lexus service removed the dashboard and fixed all rattles....read morehide

- Fun to drive, stylish, luxury at a great price, great lexus service, sound system
- no fold down rear sear, rear seat VERY small, needs more HP
I have owned my IS250 for 1 and a half years. Rides Great. I did have to get my brakes replaced after 10K (covered by lexus) b/c they were squeeking. The dealer said the originals are to high performace for the car and were creating to much break dust. I also found the occasional rattling in the car. It usually goes away. Lexus service is the best I have ever seen. Overall very satisfied with the car. You get more for your money compared to Audi, BMW are the rest. Snow tires are a MUST if driving in the snow. Especially with RWD....read morehide

- Smooth ride, sleek, and styleish
- Personally I don't think it is great for in the country or back roads.
This car is sleek sporty and still sophisticated! I love it so much. It's awsome.

- Good fuel economy. Luxury interioir, good exterior look, big lugguge for such a small car.
- Too little room in back
This car is great! I got the one without the navi but shoud've gotten navi because that package also includes alot of other stuff like memorized seats, auto windshield wipers etc. But I am still very happy with it. Even without the navi package it has plenty of features like key less entry, auto climate control, heated and cooled front seats, and more. It has a love it or hate it look but I love it. Good color selection, very nice interior, other than the little back seat space. Only fits 4 comfortably but still not too comfortably. Gas mileage is 21-29 so thats good. Good handling, brakes, and power. Would definitely recommend it!...read morehide
