For Single People With No Children — I'm not impressed at all, I had it for almost a yr now. It's toooo small. No enough compartments, and the compartments it does have their way too small. Can only fit small kids I the back, adults will be too big. One cup holder in the front, nowhere to put my phone. Just way to small.

Lexus Is250 — I love my car.. it's sexy and quick. i couldn't ask for anything else. The car performs very well... On the open road she's a beast and handles with the best of them. My car is a very fun car, has a nice sporty look and very comfy on the inside!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

There are only 15 in Kimberley

Cons

Only 153 Kw on Tap

Just Perfect For The Price — Goes well, corners well, stps brilliant, sound system is awesome, can take a lot of punishment, has good handling dynamics, Traction off allows quite a bit of fun. Aero kit is good, and is quiet. Fuel 7.0 L/100Km at steady 120 KPH, 7.4 at 160 KPH, overall 9.2 L/ 100 Km Need I say more 2010, 1 minor crash and 45000Km later, Fell in love with the F, but like a supermodel, she stays outa the reach of my bank account. IS 250 still runs well, Satnav took me down a 34 Km Gravel road earlier this year, handles the dirt well, but the rattle in the Dash clips have become excessive, will ask the dealer to adress at next service
