"Is250 is a very smooth car when it comes to shifts in gears and suspension system. Two things I love that I had to try out before I brought the car was the Mark Levinson system w/ 13 speakers and 1 built in subwoofer for premium sound for music enthusiasts like myself to enjoy and as well as the gps/navigation which is very nice. The reason I couldn't give it 5 stars is 3 reasons, #1 it's hard to find exact reserach on what gas it takes without a forum expressing just their opinions, before I thought it could have been between regular unleaded or mid grade, but after I got to the gas station after buying the car I noticed it takes premium unleaded (91 octane or above) which in Savannah, Ga is $3.12 a gallon right now (YIKES). Secondly it does not have direct fuel injection, which costs more money to get them cleaned and etc., thirdly is the interior door panels and front dash panel , its very unappealing to look at and takes away from the overall beauty of the car with the easy to obtain scratches and sticky front dash which is a common problem with these cars. I will definitely dread the summer coming back around from months to come. The speed and acceleration could have been a little faster, but I plan on getting the car modded and tuned to fix the problems I've stated above. Besides that the car is really good.
I believe when buying a car people should look at hp, and suspension system. If there ever came a time when it was an emergency or your trying to get away from someone like a stalker for example, 204hp, is just not going to cut it, my Infiniti will do circles around this car. With the suspension system I'm a big fan of moog products and to know you have a good support system (handling) and you can turn or go around a curb without feeling the possibility that the car isn't going to flipover whenever your pressed for time is awesome and are good things to have for any car."
