2008 Lexus IS 250 User Reviews
6-Speed Sequential with All Wheel Drive shown
- $16,710 - $18,187
- 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

- Smooth yet sporty ride, AWD is great for Canadian winters!
Nicer look than BMW, Mercedes or Audi. Great quality and remarkable ride. Tight suspension yet very smooth.

- 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
