- Fuel economy.
- Rattles,brake dust,no trunk space,slow acceleration and the maitannace program.
This car is my wife's car I have an Acura Tsx you wouldn't compare both because one of them is a 6 cylinder car and the other one is a 4 cylinder vehicle Wrong !!! the Tsx has better acceleration not as much rattling and considering that the Tsx has 60,000 miles and the Lexus has only 13,000 miles !!!!! we can't take the Lexus on a trip because it has no space !!! at all meanwhile the Tsx you could fold the seats somrthing you can't do on the lexus !!
One thing my wife brags about her care is that is the # 1 on customer care !!! well Yeahhhhhh considering that every 10,000 miles you have to take it to the dealer !! for inspection !!! what is this a Kia ?
Sorry for being to blunt but think about the operating cost if this car ? way to much.
We are trading it for the version of the TSX type S 260 HP all wheel drive....read morehide

- Stylish, loaded, good fuel economy.
- Tight interior and trunk, brake dust.
I looked at the Acura TL and Infiniti G35 before purchasing the Lexus. Love this car! Loaded with all the features (Navigation, heated seats, Sirius radio, etc.). Only weaknesses I see is that the interior and trunk can be a little snug (I had a 2001 Toyota Avalon prior to the Lexus), and the brake dust from the front tires (a very common complaint) is excessive. Was surprised by the fuel mileage. Over my first 5,000 miles I am averaging a little over 28 in mainly highway driving. Also, know this is a safety issue, but wish you could program NAV while driving, instead of having to stop to do this....read morehide

- Great on Gas, seating is comfortable, looks great, push button start, keyless enrty
I have had this vehicle for about 4 months now, I compared it with the 3 series, G35, Audi A4, and the C-class but the IS was a much smoother ride than the rest. For an entry level luxury car you can't ask for much more. This car is a joy to drive and I would recommend it to anyone.

- Sexy look, great handling, excellent stereo, superb traction control, amazing customer service
- Tougher to drive in the snow, one rattle, engine takes time to warm up.
I have had the car for a month and been nothing but happy. I could be biased because this is my first semi-luxury car I have purchased. I did have a hiccup with the windsheild wipers. The timing was not correct and one arm caught the other causing them to bend. After showing up at the dealer I had new ones within 30 min and they also double checked the timing. There is one rattle but I think it is the seatbelt banging on the passenger side door. The aux link and dual 12 volt hookups are awesome. It allows for me to hook up my nav, my ipod, and charge my cell phone. No need to spend the extra 8k on the fully loaded if you already have the amenties they offer.
All in all it is a fantastic car with excellent customer service. I will be a lexus driver for life!...read morehide

- Sexy car, GREAT interior, Nice sound system, excellent handling, Bluetooth w/navi is GREAT!
- Smaller backseat, but WHO buys the car for space? Also, brake dust buildup.
I have the Lexus IS 250 with all the goodies. I am LOVING IT.
Every morning I drive to work and look at all the cars around me, and couldn't be happier. Its nice, handles well, gets good gas mileage, and I haven't had a problem with it. Plus, its darn sexy.

- Comfortable seats, good stereo, looks great, good handling
- No reset button for gas tank mileage, trunk could be bigger, needs split rear fold down seats
Pros- Everyone says the back seats in this car are small but my family is all 5'7 or under so they all fit fine!
Cons- My car came with two different sized tires, the front tires are a different size than the rear, making it impossible to rotate the tires on this car. I plan on figuring out a way around this with a new set of tires when these wear out. They want to charge an extra $750 to install the XM Radio on it but I am going to have it installed someplace else for about $500.
Lexus could include a few more bells and whistles for the price.
Overall I love this car so far!...read morehide

- Unbelievable quality!Fit, finish, quality of materials and build quality are the BEST!
- No cons! Excellent value!
Probably the best vehicle we have ever owned! The build and quality of materials is the best in the industry. We drove all the competitors...and the IS was the best hands down. The IS is also a very beautiful design. My wife gets comments everywhere she goes. The interior has the best leather and is the quietest in its class. Lexus has won us over with this vehicle!...read morehide

- QUIET; GOOD MILEAGE
Manual has me worried that this car is so delicate, I could ruin a tire/wheel by hitting curb or pothole. Should I get the insurance for tire/wheel damage? Don't want to be paranoid about every little bump.

- Very smooth ride, everything about the car
- Back seat a tad too small but not to bad
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. I love this IS250. Very nice, smooth, and a great value...you cant go wrong with this car. My buying experience at Arrowhead Lexus in Peoria, AZ was awesome...from Terry in the internet department to Keri in finance...everything was great...you have a customer for life!!...read morehide
