Great vehicle... like it alot! But they really dropped the “Lexus” quality in the interior of the IS250 series. The dashboard, the rear view mirror , the console around the radio and the door interior... severely lacking. The material does not last or age very well. Other than that... the car is two thumbs up. Often compared to a 3 series Bmw... beamer interior is way higher quality. but in the Bmws between 2000-2004 had issue with the material on the A, B and C pillars.

The car has alot of really nice options for an 06. I wouldnt get one if you have the need for passenger room in the backseat. Unless you are able to drive with the seats moved further ahead. I like my seat back farther and my 9yr old complains about not having room for his feet. The value is amazing in my opinion. The quality of these cars and the fact that most people who buy a new Lexus take them to the dealer to get any problems fixed.

Love At 1rts Drive — Adding the complete F-sport system made this a 1 in a million car ,as they come from the dealer as an "f-sport" they do not have all the suspension upgrades, intake exhaust etc. A very low mait. vechicle, electronic power steering w/ 6speed triptronic auto trans w/ over drive so a 7 speed trans with great gas milage I get 32 highway now with the upgrades and 20 city . I was between the 09/2010 accord coupe v6 and this and this won by a landslide !!! so many more features ,a touchscreen nav,opposed to a dial . dvd I phone hook up , usb hook up tv cooled seats is fantastic in CA in the summer and the heated seats in CA get so nice and warm you don't even need to use the heat ever . All in all this is a solid car I have had a Camaro ,mustand ,eagle talon , mitsu evo , 3 accords ,an 07 civic si , and many more cars and this is the best by far such a smooth quiet ride and superb handling , with all the amenities its worth 30k easily

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: All oem mods F-sport and luxury package , excellent handeling due to the f-sport front and rear sway bars and performance from the f-sport intake and exhaust added 22hp
Interior is such a smooth idle, ride and no road noise

Cons: well now that all mait. is done and the parts are installed none.
no ,seriously though parts are pricy from the dealer , I use all oem parts but found a dealer in florida that is 1/10 th cost the price on all oem lexus parts so its about the same to keep up as a civic but a lot nicer and a ton more options

I Love This Car, Its Good Looking On The Road And Feels More Like A Sports Car Than A Coupe — For the past two years I have had no problems with the car except for the new engine due to a recall from Lexus. Very sleek and sporty, it feels more like your driving a sports car than a coupe.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty body style, very sleek.   The interior has nice technology.  Very comfortable ride.

Cons: Back seat was too small for my growing boys.

The Feel Of Luxury And Sporty In One! — This car makes road trips enjoyable and comfortable. It has heated seats for those cold days and cooling seats in hot days. Equipped with automatic windshield wipers to make driving in the rain an ease. Bluetooth connection/Handsfree you got it! I never thought I would use this accessory as much as I do, but so happy to be equipped with it. This car is great on gas and rides smooth. Definately a smaller family car, but suitable for a family of 4.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car has everything!  From sporty to luxury... could not ask for much more.

Cons: Remember... it is a Lexus not a Chevy so even an oil change can be pricey.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: i like the handling of the car and also the styling

Cons: i wish the car had some more power

Slick Ride — Wonderful all around. Can't do many upgrades but with a car this sexy who needs 'em? One day maybe I can get the IS-F and then have a car that's equally as sexy as it is fast. KkThxBai. Alright. Cool.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The traction control is a little rough around the edges but the sport mode is where it's at. I haven't gotten to test the built in snow mode yet.

Cons: Nothing.
