Gorgeous red droptop. Sporty, crisp handling. Lexus Quality. No complaints!
2010 Lexus IS 250CJ - Las Vegas, NV04/16/2015
The website won't specify this is an IS250C. The C being the most important! I have owned 3 convertibles before this one, all ragtops. There's no comparison. If you are one of the afflicted who must own a sporty droptop (face it, the boring people think we are nuts), then power hardtop is the only way to go.----- I'm not a kid. I've had MANY cars, I knew what I wanted, and I was in no hurry. I'm 6'2" and overweight, so right off the bat I have to rule out many true sports cars - all seemingly made for midgets. If I was 4 inches shorter I would be in an MX-5. This is better looking, more luxurious... but not quite a true sports car. VW EOS was a close second, but I like RWD.
IS250 Manual Transmission (NOT A RACE CAR)
2006 Lexus IS 250Oneil Heslop - Hollywood, FL02/02/2016
Despite the sporty exterior and a willing chassis, the car is not a sports sedan. It's let down by the whimpy engine, an unresponsive throttle and a transmission programmed by someone from the Prius team.
Very comfortable ride, for a small car. no major problems for me yet. Front wheels, a lot of dust brakes. I'm 6'3", so I need a lot of leg room to drive. There is only enough room for a small kid to ride in the back seat behind me. Why does this car have such a big trunk but no space in the back seat? I've been using plus gas, anything higher is a waste of money. Many times, I smell something overheating from the clutch, it has been checked by the dealer, they found nothing.
2015 Lexus IS 250james Paraskeva - MOUNT PLEASANT, SC10/09/2016
Hard top convertible. Gives the fun of a convertible and the quiet of a hard top sedan. For some reason, Lexus shorted this model on the tech provided in the sedan. My model has all the options available except the sport package. It is plenty sporty enough as is. Great for around town, but the IS is a bit small for long road trips.
