Pros

- Brilliant build quality, both interior and exterior
- Very smooth and comfortable ride
- Great handling in wet conditions, and around corners

Cons

- Rear leg space insufficient to accommodate two adult passesngers comfortably
- The flappy-paddle gear box is attached to the steering wheel such that it turns *along* with the steering wheel. This makes it difficult to change gears using the paddles when around a tight corner as they have moved to a really awkward position during the turn! More thought should have been put into designing that.

Drop-dead Gorgeous! — Fantastic build quality, clearly a demonstration of the L-Finesse Lexus philosophy. Looks great b oth on the inside and the out. Sharp curves and aggressive lines mark the front, while the rear is very compact unlike a BMW-3 Has amazing handling, the AWD works great in wet/ icy/ snow conditions. (I live in Minnesota, trust me, it gets real bad here in the winter). Interior is great, the best selling point for the interior would be the dashboard. The machine accelerates quite fast, and is very nimble and stable around corners. This is a semi-sports luxury car, so the ride is very smooth, suspension is obviously not tuned towards the sports end. Would have liked to have the 'Sports' mode option like in the European version here too. The flappy-paddle gear box is a great tool to impress your friends, but as an alternative to the stick-shift, it loses. Couple all the above with Lexus' customer service, and we have a winner.Overall, a fantastic car to own and drive everyday. If you do want a serious and worthy alternative to the BMW-3 series or Audi A-4 stereotypes, this is the car for you. Definitely a head-turner.

The Is250 Is Great For Entery Level Lexus — Loved how it drives, very well built, small lack of power. Overall I will buy it again. Seats fit around you well. The fuel economy in my car has averaged 24/35 MPG. Very safe car, stops on a dime and accelerates well for only having 204 hp.

Tire wear and noise

2007 Lexus Is250 — Handling and braking are sports car quality. The engine is not as powerful as I would like but it is very smooth and fuel efficient. The six speed transmission shifts very smoothly. The tires are a disappointment on a car of this quality and price range. They are very noisy and wore very quickly.

2.5-liter still lack of torque, should have IS350 AWD

Lexus Is 250 Awd Summary — The new 2.5-liter V6 is quiet and refined, even with normally noisy direct injection on board, also the new IS looks as good as it does and produces an aerodynamic drag coefficient as low as it does. love the AWD in rainny day, passing those idiot drivers XD

An Amazing Buy. — I loved my Lexus. I purchased it Certified Pre-Owned and owned it for two and a half years. In that time I had a couple of minor issues with the car that were all taken care of through Lexus without any cost out of pocket. I definitely would recommend this car, new, used, or CPO, without any hesitation. GREAT CAR!

Dream Come Truth — The IS 250 is a respectable pick, but its lack of serious speed will deter hard-core enthusiasts, as will its muted steering feedback. And in terms of comfort, a cramped backseat means it won't be the best choice for families or those who frequently take on passenDERS.

Great Car For The Money. — Of all my friends that bought similar luxury cars in the 
same month, my Lexus is faster, better looking, gets 
 better mileage and hasn't broken down yet (thankfully).  
This was my first real car, a major upgrade from the 
1983 mercedes diesel I drove in school.  Talk about an 
upgrade.

Is250 — Quit possibly the best car ever made. I have owned a BMW and Mercedes prior to this lexus. Amazing performance, looks and handling make it the best mid sized luxury car on the market. Lexus customer service is second to none and everytime I have the vehicle serviced, I am surprised and pleased with something new that they provide.

The Entry Level Luxury Sport Sedan Category Has Just Changed. Alot. — The moment I saw this vehicle I knew the world has changed. No longer will Lexus struggle to beat BMW's 3-series. Although, it may takes serveral generations of this vehicle to beat them, they are closer than they think. With the Release of the 2009 IS-F to compete with the M3, it's going to be interesting. The vehicle's design takes direction from a design philosophy from Lexus, known as L-Finesse. Exterior and Interior communicate with each other by sharing in the form of design. Materials, fit and fininsh, technology and luxury are of course the finest in it's class. After driving this vehicle it's not hard to see why Lexus is the number one luxury brand in america. ( That's not an opinion, it's fact, taken from a well known world renoun auomotive publication.)
