Great Car Would Recommend To Anyone. — Not roomy enough if you have kids who still use a car seat. Overall it is a great car had very few problems since new and what did go wrong was fixed with no hassles at Sewell Lexus of Grapevine under warranty. Have not had any issues in the past three years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very nice looking car, low maintenance cost, comfortable seats, user friendly navigation and bluetooth nice interior color combination.

Cons: Not very roomy with two car seats in the back.

Great Car, Perfect For Everyday Family Motoring. Snow Tyres Are A Must Though ;) — Love it, does everything I ask of it, even in the middle of winter despite it's RWD drivetrain. For a diesel it's pretty quick, and it does it economically too; drive it on the motorway and you can easily see 55mpg+, around the doors it's still 35mpg+. It's fun to drive, and the RWD nature doesn't try to bite back at you at all, it's still nice and easy to drive, and fun too.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Refined, economical, and well specced even in the base trim.

Cons: Lexus parts prices aren't cheap, and the dealers prices aren't either!  The warranty company will also look for any reason to avoid warranty work...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: style class and performance

Cons: no space in the back seat but hey who needs friends

Great Looking Vehicle But Not As Fun To Drive As Others It Its Class. Some Annoying Defects. — Great looking car with nice interior and great radio. Some issues: Broken/missing parts in the sunroof and dash, wheels delaminated after 2 years (the dealer tells me that this is common on Lexus), car arrived with front spoiler installed incorrectly. It's been in the shop 15 times in 3 years. Interestingly, when I expressed dissatisfaction with various aspects of the car in a Lexus customer satisfaction survey, nobody got back to me. The dealership has returned the car to me after servicing with greasy hand prints on the light grey cloth headliner and pillars a number of times. Once, when the car was in to get snow tires installed they lost my summer tires - permanently. It took more than 4 months to resolve this. The car replaced my old 2002 Mercedes C230 coupe. The Merc was less expensive and substantially outperformed the Lexus. The Mercedes dealership/service experience was also better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Exterior and interior appearance, sound system

Cons: Manual gear box weak, build quality issues

The Is 250 — Well the things I like make this car seem like the opposite of what I use to want. It has very very limited after market parts so I won't want to build it up. Yet it is still sporty with a pep in its step. It is agile for an awd and gets alright gas mileage at about 28mpg on the highway. Four doors means easier to get people in and out. The overall of this car is a good lux/sport hybrid with a base model price.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great ride lots of goodies

Cons: Its black and hard to keep clean.

Beautiful And Reliable — Performed well on track for me. Interior is absolutely stunning and ahead of its generation. Performance is powerful yet quiet and subtile. Absolutely a fun car to drive with. Way cheaper than any BMW or Mercedes Benz. Definately a good and safe choice.

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

Pros: Reliability

Cons: None

Is250 Is An Excellent Car For The Money — Love the car, rides silky smooth, looks good, and it gets good gas mileage. Interior fit and finish is amazing. Ipod hook-ups stock. I love the Lexus name, I work for BMW and would reccomend this car over one if you are looking for a smooth ride, but still want to have the classy look.

Pros: Love the ride and fit and finish

Cons: Could handle a little better to compete with others in its class
