Very Good "sporty" car I enjoy year round... even in New England
"The 2011 Lexus IS250 AWD is a well made "sporty"car that can be enjoyed year round. It has a high quality classic interior. Even though my car is 9+ yrs old, the leather still looks new and the Nav system, stereo & every button in the car function perfectly. The engine & transmission function flawlessly, but I wish I had the additional hp found in the IS350.(The IS250 has 204hp and the IS350 has over 300hp.) The negative points of my IS250 are: expensive routine maintenance, the rear brake calipers have seized up 2 times and the Michelin AS3+ tires need to be replaced every 20-25k miles (with 5k mile tire rotation & minimally aggressive driving). If not for the brake & tire issues, I would have easily rated the Lexus IS250 Five stars! Overall a GREAT car and I love it!"

IS-F
"Lexus ISF is one of the most underrated cars ever. Its a sweet sounding 420hp high revving 5.0 NA V8 and a 20+mpg freeway cruiser. More practical choice than a E92 M3 or a C63 amg of the era. Extremely reliable and maintenance is way cheaper. It doesn't even require synthetic oil per the owner's manual! There are ISF owners who are at 200K + miles and still track them occasionally. Only con is that tuning option is limited other than the simple intake and exhaust mods which does add about 60hp. But any further power boost by SC/Turbo and ECU tune is a major hassle. "
