2014 is 250 f sport: sleek, beautiful, high tech, but a bit on the small side.

Love this car. It is a 4 door sedan, which is great. However, the interior is bit small and cramped- my 6' husband can barely get in and always hits his head. Trunk space is kinda small- barely fits my jogging stroller folded up. It sits pretty low to ground and the front bumper goes even lower, which means it stays scuffed from hitting the bump at the front of parking spaces. The tires are low profile, so they're not going to last as long and the front and rear tires are different sizes, so you cannot rotate them. The windshield is super expensive if you ever have to replace. That being said, I still love the sleek look of the spindle grill and smooth curves- mine is matador red, which is beautiful. Love all the bells and whistles inside. The driver's seat has lumbar support and can be lowered/raised. Like the media display. It gets pretty good gas mileage (though premium gas only). Overall, I love this car despite a few disadvantages.

Want reliability, comfort, top features & classy ride? Buy Lexus is250 today!

The only semi problem that I have had is that my clock does not keep correct time. Service dept. Here in Houston/Katy, Texas is incredible!! They have reset the clock several times and it still does not keep correct time. Otherwise, I have had no other problems at all! Drives like a dream! Excellent, I love it! I especially like the feature that sounds to aware you of a vehicle or anything on the side of you or in front of you or behind this car has been extremely reliable and the roadside service is quick and hassle free! I only had to use it once in 4 years and it was only because of a flat tire!

My little red Lexus is 250.

Lexus is 250 is very reliable and gets great gas mileage. It is red and is my favorite color with black interior. It has a GPS system and has seats warmers and coolers. It is a small compact car that is sporty looking for my age. The only problems I have with it is finding tires for my car because of the low grade tires it has to have and the front tires are not the same size as the tires in the back side. I got hit by a deer and the bad thing about that is it will total my car as small as it is but I do feel comfortable and safe in my car.
