One of the most important things others should know about my car is that my particular year or around the 2005 2008 models had a carbon buildup issue that has to be maintain so the issue doesn't get worse in the car will drive even worse

I really love body design of my car I love that is rear wheel drive. I love the interior the driver seat and passenger see how it feels like a cockpit and how the back seats in the rear of the car is slanted. I really enjoy the headlights in the LED parking lights were driving lights has a very nice clean aggressive look

Lexus is 250 short ownership review.

The 2. 5l is great on gas. Great luxury car for a cheap price. I have over 100, 000 miles only have done routine maintenance on the vehicle. The leather seats have no rips in them whatsoever, just regular wear and tear. Only takes premium fuel, if you put regular gas the vehicle will throw up some codes.

- Matthew D

Super nice leather seats with heated and cool seats.

I love my car. It rides smoothly, never has many problems, super comfortable, has a nice sunroof, and I have very minimal complaints about it. The mileage is decent but my only issue is that you have to use premium gas in it which can add up quickly.
