"First Japanese car owned. Always had high end European cars. Now I know why they are considered so great. Performance,function,sport,looks,power,paddles,all options. Wow!
To confirm my choice checked out 3 Series.For not as great cornering agility, Lexus surpasses by far in power,price,options,comfort,amenities,svc.
Buy again? You bet!"
"Absolutely Love this car. The IS250 is a sporty car with a tighter suspension and some get up and go. The car is a blast to drive and gets high marks on quality, reliability, and safety. Only issue I have had is rocks cracking the windshield (3 dings and 1 replaced windshield). The angle of the windshield (or something) doesn't handle the rocks. Absolutely wonderful car!"
"This car handles so well. It has been such a dependable car. I have had mine since 2006 when the new models just came back. People still stop to look at it! Highly recommended. The only negative is the capacity of the trunk."
"For the 14th straight year Lexus once again stands alone atop a closely watched ranking of vehicle dependability, says J.D. Power and Associates. Toyota Motor Corp.'s high-end brand has held the top positition in the annual study, which measures problems experienced by the original owners of vehicles after three years. That's a pretty good track record!"
"My 2008 IS250 is absolutely the best vehicle I have ever owned. It just makes you want to go out and drive for the feel and its good looks. Leather is soft and we have the cooled/heated option which works great even in Hawaii. It could use a bit more power but then you should buy the IS350 if that is what you are into. The ride is on the firmer side and this is why it handles turns really well on the freeway and around town at any speed. The looks will knock you out every morning when you step in it and drive to work. My dream car is a reality for now."
"I bought this car after I kept seeing them on the streets of SA. I just had to have it and boy am I glad. This is the best car I have ever owned. Besides the good looks and excellent performance, the Lexus service is well worth the purchase. It is a bit small for my husband who is over 6 foot, but then again, it's not his car. Have fun with this one! Highly recommend."
"This car is amazing. I'd keep this car till i drove it into the ground (which at this rate would take an eternity, great build quality and reliability) but i'm looking for something a little faster. Hope this helps..."
"I have not been able to find anything I dislike with this vehicle..
I have added the F sport intake & performance exchaust offered by Lexus..
Prior to those changes I have averaged 22.6 MPG over 35000 miles Best MPG is 32.5 driving on a trip using the cruise at 65 MPH 17.5 MPG was on around town with playing with throttle, well I'll say it, fast starts just to feel the power..."
