Some pros and cons to owning a 2013 Lexus is 250.

The car has had very little mechanical issues. The inside of the car is far from being spacious for leg room. There is plenty of head room which helps for the lack of legroom. The car has a smaller v6 engine that helps with gas mileage however, torque is less than desirable. The car rides and handles smoothly but due to the back tires being larger/wider than the front tires they cannot be rotated so they do wear out faster. It has a sport suspension so great handling but a little on the rough side for cruising.

Trunk won't open in my car without manually using a key

My vehicle does not have much problems. It is good on gas and hasn't broken down. The tires are great and it is easy to clean the car. Only problem that I had was my trunk won't open with the button on my key or the button inside my car. The only way the trunk will open is if I go under the trunk with my key and open it manually.

I love my Lexus backup camera!

Lexus is a great car! I have had absolutely no problems with my Lexus since buying it in 2013. I bought it used but it has been a dream! I would recommend a Lexus to anyone! My car is spacious, great on gas, comfortable and very sleek looking but still affordable. I feel completely safe at all times while driving on the road.
