- GPS/NAV, style, 30 MPG highway 21 MPG city
- shocked with the amount of rattles and poor dealer service at Tom Williams
Nice car with many features for the price, however, this car will have you spending your days off at the dealership finding squeak and rattles.
I have NOT been impressed with the service at Tom Williams Lexus in Birmingham Alabama. This has been a common issue with IS owners that Lexus is trying to keep quiet....read morehide

- The Fuel Economy is great Great placement of buttons
- The backseat is a little Cramped
The Lexus Is 250 AWD gives you the power when you need it. The placement of the buttons keep you concentrated on the road. It has knee airbags on both sides. Here comes the down side. The trunk is a little small. The ventilated front seats fell a little odd on your behind. The back row is totallt small for an adult....read morehide

- looks, push buttom start, headlight turn,
- the nav and stereo system
The Nav and stereo system does not compare with the G35. Very expensive to update maps, must take it in dealer to update. Cannot burn CDs to harddrive. The G35 has a better intergation of an IPOD. Bought the Lexus over the G35 because of Lexus reliability, dealership and looks. Am extremely please with my purchased....read morehide

- Sleek & Stylish Interior and exterior, decent gas mileage
- not enough leg room in back, tight in front & nav system isn't as advanced as infiniti G35
I am really surprised no one mentions the nav system. I am deciding now between the IS or the G and I will say the extra leg room in the Infiniti and computer based nav are definetely swaying me towards the G35. The Lexus you have to update every quarter with software (not practical) the G35 you have a backup camera, updates streets automatically (no software involved) it downloads any CD so you don't have to keep popping in CD's and has icons so if you route your home you could put a little castle symbol. I'm disapointed the Lexus isn't more technology advanced. Make the next IS 250 with more ROOM please and better nav system....read morehide

- Nice acceleration, good audio and GPS, nice trim in and out
- LAck of interior room
While the car is very attractive to look at --both in and out--with surprisingly smooth and quick acceleration given its horses, the fact is that is very difficult to get in and out. There is simply not enough room.

- Traction is world class. Flawless tiptronic transmission. Great car!
- Needs a little bit more horse power. 18 inch wheels would be nice as well.
Intereior is top notch. This car handles like a dream. I have an HKS exhaust and a Fujita air intake system which helps the car breath a bit better and also improves the horse power to somewhere around 220 HP.
This is a great car for the female driver as well as the experienced driver who demands a little bit of performance. I can see myself in the IS 350 real soon although i will miss the AWD system.
You won't be disappointed with this car in any way, - 100% satisfied!...read morehide

- HD lighting, style, Sirus radio
- rattles, squeaks, rattles, poor Lexus service
You'll need to keep the sound system cranked to hide all the rattles that the dealer cannot repair and Lexus cannot provide tech support.
Spending my days off at the dealer trying to get rattles fix is getting old and Lexus has a care less attitude.
WOULD not PURCHASE this car again becuase of the poor service from my dealer and Lexus. Lexus quality has dropped and it shows!...read morehide

- This car has amazing handling and is very stable at high speeds.
- The car is loud, the break make noise, the GPS is not that advance, the sound system is good at best
The car has great handling and is very reliable. However, for that price I think the value is not up to paar. It is missing options that should be included such as a mirror-turn signal. The bluetooth is not compatable with all wireless services and because of that there are many options which become unavailable such as the quick-dial screen. I expected the nav system to be top-notch. However, there are many voice commands that it does not pick up and the music is not automatically turned down during the voiced commands. The accelaration is not impressive and neitheris the the gas-mileage....read morehide
