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.

The leather seats are of high qualilty and the inside cabin is quiet. The interior also boasts an easy to read display and radio with six speakers for exceptional sound. This Lexus is the perfect conbination of luxury and sportiness. In addition to all of these features, the Lexus IS 250 gets approximately 20-24 miles to the gallon, which makes it even more of a pleasure to drive.
Great car wouldn't recommend the 06
