Nice But Not That Nice..


Recommended Posts

greetings fellow IS owners.

Dear oh dear, i have just returned having test driven my dream car the IS 250 manual. i have a few problems with this car, i currently drive the toyota avensis,yes boring i hear you say.

however the IS was not much better in its driving smootheness over my avensis. yes it was much faster but i was finding myself having to think about letting the clucth out so as not to lurch forward. the test car was a bit hesistant in moving off from stand still. also the gear box felt very heavy and dare i say agrictural.

all in all i am now some what dissapointed as i was about to place the order for the IS. we did drive it for a good few miles.

i guess its back to the drawing board for me.

any comments or thoughts most gratefully accepted as i am still in shock.

Should have driven the IS250 Auto....my father in law had an Avensis T3x and I tried to sell it on this forum..but resorted to selling it back to Toyota as had no offers. The Avensis was like new and a nice reliable car, but no match for the Lexus in any category. You will not want to go back to a manual after the auto...it's published mpg figures are better than the manual too.
