"In my opinion, this is the best looking car on the road for the money. However, I have had many minor issues with this car. Soon after purchase, the VSC system would not disengage. Some time later, the sunroof would not close. The rear window rattles every time I hit even the most minor bump in the road. The unthinkable happend during Christmas Eve when I was stuck in B2B traffic and my power-steering quit for no apparent reason on a relatively new lexus. With the exception of the rear window rattle (as it still rattles 1 year later after 3 visits to dealer), these issues have been addressed and for the most part repaired . But the inconvenience I have experienced through ownership of this car entry level "luxury car" for the first 50k miles is rivaled only by domestics with 150k+ miles. The appearance, bells and whistles, and remaining car payments are what daily prevents me away from torching the car myself. I will feel sincere guilt when the day comes to trade this in for ANOTHER MAKE."

"I LOVE THIS CAR SO MUCH. I RECENTLY GOT INTO A CAR ACCIDENT (YES IT WAS THE OTHER PERSON'S FAULT. MY CAR SAVED MY LIFE WITH THE FRONT AND KNEE AIRBAGS. IT WAS SO SAFE THAT I DIDN'T EVEN FEEL THE AIRBAGS DEPLOY. I WOULDN'T DRIVE ANOTHER CAR. I'M IN THE PROCESS OF FINDING MY SAME EXACT CAR."

"Honestly, this car is a great deal. I was looking at the BMW328 and G35 coupe and the manual IS250 was the best. Soft clutch, beautiful interior, nice handling, decent gas mileage, and 18's are a nice touch. In comparison to the 328 its a no brainer to pick the lexus, but G35's power is much better and the overall appearance and interior are quite comparable. If I was to do it over again I would of forked over a few more thousand and got the G35 as I like more power, but overall I really enjoy the IS250 and am very happy with the purchase. Guess, as with everything else, hindsight is 20/20."

"Truly one of the most luxurious entry-level luxury sport sedans on the market. The same cockpit and interior styling that Lexus uses in the remainder of their award winning lineup. A near perfect layout of controls and indicators paired with a navigation system that is visually stunning and extremely intuitive. Not the fastest vehicle in its class, but that shouldn't be the goal when purchasing an AWD vehicle. If speed is your thing, the IS350 has much to offer. The IS250 AWD has crisp and responsive handling. The traction control systems perform their functions extremely well, keeping you headed in the right direction, no matter what the conditions. This car is a joy to drive and simply sit in. There is little chance that this car will disappoint, and little wonder that it captured JD Power's 2005/6 Initial Quality award for its segment, beating out the likes of the 3-series and Audi."
