Yet Another New Is 250 Owner

Recommended Posts

I've been a member here for a little while, learning about the cars, but today I became a Lexus owner for the first time.

Bought a 2008 (facelift) IS 250 SE-L with Multimedia and 16,999 miles in Caspian Sky (which, despite the V5 saying the colour is "blue", is actually a pearlescent white). I also paid for an extra 24 months warranty, so it covered under the 5+ warranty for the next 3 years.

Difficult to really give an impression at this stage (my previous/current cars have been mostly Porsche and BMW M-Power) as the drive back from the West Midlands to Hampshire was mostly on motorway in the pouring rain today :-(

Expect lots of questions as I get to grips with the various gadgets in the car.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
