"I absolutely love my Lexus IS 250! Lexus vehicles are very reputable, especially when maintained properly. The only downside I see to owning a Lexus is that most Lexus vehicles require premium gasoline. In my opinion, it is worth paying extra for gas to be able to drive such a great car. As with any vehicle, I would also recommend regular oil changes. In particular, the Lexus IS 250 may be too small for a family, but I consider it roomy in the front seat. If you are interested in the Lexus IS 250, but you think it may be too small, you may want to consider a Lexus ES, RX, GS, or LS. They are much larger than the IS, but are somewhat similar in design."
