Fun For Now — WOWWWW!!!! this is a very loaded, fun comfortable ride and handles great too. AWD is good to have in CO and the turning headlamps are crazy when driving at night. one touch controls and never having to touch the key is amazing!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Noisy Interior, Everyone is buying one now

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.

Pros

Build Quality, Ride and Handling, Appearance

Cons

Tire wear and noise

45

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.

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.

Pros

Brand, Luxury, Fuel Economy and Safety

Cons

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

55

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

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.

Pros

Appearance is beauitful

Cons

Very Slow Machine

25

V.i.p. — This car is very luxury and looks very sleek. The only down or con about this car is that, it is very slow, for the V6, because of it's weight and such.
