Hello All, I've had my IS250 AWD for just over a month now. I must say, the car is a blast to drive. Handles corners with ease. Great power...comes with (S) paddle shift too! In the car, premium sound is excellent w/ 6-disc CD, moonroof, no Navi, though. A few comments: No Coin holder and back seat room is somewhat tight. Other than that, the car is very comfortable and sporty. Do not mind the stares, either.

Actually, I love the stares, telling me how great looking the car is! I'm also disappointed that it doesn't have a coin holder, but I improvise by using the ashtray area . Does anybody know whether the backs of the front seats are ventilated? I only feel the heat/cool air from the bottom of the seat.

I got my IS350 for about 2 weeks now and the only complain I have is there is no coin holder in this car. However, I did find a way to improvise...If you are not a smoker, you could remove the ash tray and the remaining space can serve as the coin holder.
Hope this helps.

I have a squeaking noise in my dash also. Very frustrating to hear this on a Lexus. Like ricksterq said, it will be a good test of Lexus customer service.
#10 of 378 IS250 Vibrating Rearview Mirror
May 31, 2006 (9:01 am)
When I drive with the windows and sunroof open, especially on the highway, my rearview mirror (not the side mirrors) vibrates so bad that when I look into it, the cars behind me look blurry. Does anyone else have this problem? When I took my car to the dealership for the seatbelt recall, I had them look at this problem. They said they could not fix it and that they took an IS250 off the lot for a test drive and they said it did the same thing and that it must be an issue with all the cars and maybe a recall could happen if enough people complain. Just curious if it is just my car or if others are having this issue.
