I purchased this car used and have not been disappointed for even a moment. I was initially intrigued with the sleek design. This car is full of function and quality. I haven't had any problems since purchasing it several months ago. I get around 25 MPG with city/highway driving combined.
2 seater with 4 doors
2006 Lexus IS 250KHANH - Albuquerque,NM11/01/2008
06 Lexus IS250 - It is a beautiful car with excellent quality/workmanship, but there is no room in the back seats to fit an average size adult much less a car seat. The front seats were redesigned in 08' to increase leg room for the rear passengers. The suspension is too hard and uncomfortable for long drives. The braking system feels like an on and off switch. I could not come to a stop without jerking the vehicle. Looking back I should have opted for the IS350, maybe the increased horsepower would of helped me overlook this vehicle's short comings.
Avoid First Model-Year Cars -
2006 Lexus IS 250Alex - Olney, MD07/11/2014
I had the RWD flavor, and it was horrendous on the roads the moment a few snowflakes fell - the traction control would try to kick in and made it impossible go up even the smallest hill. For the often tricky weather, I needed something more stable and AWD.
The car also spent too much time in the shop, dealing with recalls, and finally the re-built engine just did it for me. This was surely due to the fact that the 2006 was the first model year of the IS 2nd generation lineup - kinks had to be worked out. Sold it in '13 after 4 years of commuting. A shame, because the car itself was very sexy.
Now I drive a '13 Subaru Legacy with the Eye Sight package - couldn't be happier.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
