Lexus IS250 Reviews and Owner Comments
2007 Lexus IS250Visitor, Fort Pierce, FL, March 06, 2013 13:30While I love the sporty look of the IS-250, I have had 3 recalls on the vehicle since I've owned it. Lexus/Toyota does take care of its customers, but we pay a premium up-front to do so. I've experienced excessive brake wear and brake dust on this model, but love how it drives. The inside panels of the doors and the interior decking is made of a soft material that scratches too easily and wears too quickly. I've owned three Lexus models and have been satisfied with purchasing new versus pre-owned of which I have now.
2006 Lexus IS250Visitor, Burnt Corn, AL, November 18, 2012 10:37I bought my 2006 IS250 in July of 2010 w/ only 30K on it. Since then I"ve added another 40K. Replaced water pump at 63K, but no other mechanical issues. Front seats are not very supportive and the trunk release/gas cap release buttons have fallen through the dash. Car looks great and gets pretty good mileage. Front wheels stay covered in brake dust. Nice car, but too much of a price premium for the name. Will I buy another Lexus when I wear this one out or tire of it? Probably not.
2006 Lexus IS250Visitor, Andover, MA, November 01, 2012 18:13Very reliable and fun car to drive. My 2006 250 manual has always had a noisy transmission with over 140K miles. Brakes are dusty. I've changed oil, tires, battery and exhaust. Mirrors are crap, rearview and sides. Fun to drive, but no power. Invest in good tires for best handling. Snows make it almost impossible to spin out in winter weather.
2007 Lexus IS250clawz, Lafayette, LA, August 31, 2011 21:32My 2007 IS 250 has plenty of horse power for this size car. I had a brake pad problem, but Lexus paid for it. I have an open recall right now for a fuel pressure switch. I did what a lot of other people do, ( I bought a certified used car) and let someone else take the beating on the resale. My wife absolutely loves it, so that's all I need. Mom happy = Daddy happy. Anyway, good luck to all. This is a great website for anyone who owns a car. Their response time was only a few hours a most. Thanks to anyone who works for this website or company or has anything to do with this site at all. I'm a happy camper.Rookie
2006 Lexus IS250debbiesmith, Beaufort, NC, April 18, 2011 09:52My first luxury car and oh boy what ride. It handles like a dream. Lot of brake dust on the front wheels.Enthusiast
2007 Lexus IS250Visitor, Keller, TX, February 08, 2011 07:28excessive front brake pad dust on rims. Under warranty dealer replaced the front pads and disc's free. Excellent car.
2008 Lexus IS250Visitor, Austin, TX, April 15, 2010 06:59This is one car that you'll just have to drive to believe! I've owned several different high end cars but 'for the money' this one is the best. I purchased my 2008 in 2010 (with low miles) from a 'one owner'. The car is flawless. I've heard that there are issues with brake pads wearing out prematurely and I will be removing my wheel to see how much brake pads are left. At any rate, I have no complaints about this car! I'd recommend it to anyone...!
