- Just about everything!
- Back seat leg room
I drove everything that I thought was comparable to this car and when I drove the lexus I knew hands down that this was the one. No questions ask the best value of entry level luxury that you can buy.

- Sporty Appearance, Push Start & Keyless Entry, Interior Quality
- Acceleration, Rear Leg Room
Had this car for 2 years now. Bought it first month when it came out at full price less a thousand dollars discount. Love almost everything about it. The look, the feel, the drive. Only bones are the acceleration due to its small (relatively) engine and rear leg room when carrying guests. Because of these issues, it's a 9/10 on my scale....read morehide

- Handling is great, smooth ride, overall interior, exterior appeal.
I love this car. I also own a 2004 BMW 325 which I drive everyother day. as far as steering I like the BMW better it is more connected to the driver. But the lexus is just amazingly superior in every other aspect. I had been shopping for this car for about 1 year. I looked at the infinity G 35, 37, the acura TL S, BMW 328 but this car just has too many options that come standard for under 34 k...read morehide

This is my first ever review about any product. I test drove the BMW 335i, Infiniti g35 sedan and the IS250 RWD. I can say with confidence that this this the best of the three I test. everything is just well balanced with this car inside out and mostly when you drive. The BMW 335I appearance is noticable but when I step in I felt something missing but not sure what. althougth the handling was good at low speed above 60mph you could feel small vibration. While with the IS 250, everything is just smoth and provide a feeling extreme comfort and class. For people looking for the best combination in all areas, I am sure this car is top in it category....read morehide

- GPS, comfortable ride and no accesories needed-everything is included.
- none so far.
I have never driven a car quite as smooth and slick as the IS250, I'm so glad I bought it. After test driving the Acura TL Type S, I wasn't so happy with the features/price. For me, the extra horsepower wasn't all that necessary. I went back to Lexus and after test driving it for the 2nd time I was conviced that this was the right car for me. What a great ride. This car is quite an attraction....read morehide

- Comfort is excellent
- Horsepower, stock stereo
Talk about a car that will turn heads. This car is gorgous both inside and out. The leather trim is beautiful. I've put about 500 miles on my car now and will be testing it's handling and power a bit more now. My worst fear is the tires wearing out after only 25k miles, which I heard is the case with the high performance tires installed. And since the back tires are a different size than the front tires, don't plan to rotate them to save the tread. The stock sound system could be better as the 350 comes with the Mark Levingston system which I've listen to as well and it blows away the stock stereo system in my 250. The touch screen Navigation system works great and very easy to navigate. I haven't even touched the surface of what the Nav system offers, the manual is 300pages, don't worry they provide you with cliff notes of about 20 pages. All and all I really enjoy driving this car and I was 100% satisfied with my buying experience at the Pleasanton, CA Lexus Dealership....read morehide

- moonroof, smart key, auto. clmiate control, very comfortable leather carbin, 6 CDs,..., much more
- too many front break-dust. need to clean in a day or two
After shopping around between BMW 3 series, G35, BenZ C series, I finally brought this car home months ago with base model ( 18" wheel with summer tier ).
As day goes by, we love it more and more. Really quite in cabin, easy and lots of fun to drive. 205 HP is enough in reality. It demonstrates excellent acceleration no matter where it is, on highway, or the front of red lights.
You know what, as entry-level luxury car, you can't find another car like Lexus IS250 which offers you with so many features and top quality at the same money.
Lexus IS250 is really good. Why don't you have a test drive before making choices between BMW 3, G35, BenZ C and Audi A4....read morehide

- Sexy design, fast, good road grip, comfortable, soundless, stereo is incredible
- rear view is limited, narrow back sit space (who cares)
Had this car for 3 week already. Like it more and more every day.... Initially did not consider a Japanese car and ended up with this car only after test driving Audi A4, Volvo S40, SAAB 93. Not even competible!. Increadible control over road, increadible turn, fast. Absolutely noiseless inside of cabin. Stereo system is like Musical Hall. Obviously everything was considered by designers of this car, nothing more- nothing less. Seats are very comfortable.
Steering wheel pedals are very convinient for gear shifting on freeway drive.
Very happy...read morehide
