Re: Is the IS 250/350 a 'chick' car?
How does anyone know that you have a 250 RWD unless they are close enough to read the back of it. Strange question to ask: if you really like the car and are secure, do you really care what somebody else will think?? Not trying to incite but I had a BMW before and those folks think anyone driving a Lexus is a retiree and/or cannot be a true car enthusiast!r

If you want to keep car, cheaper in long run to purchase. If you want new car every few years you go the lease route knowing that there are mileage limitations and that it is just money out the window, like rent payments.
Dealers make considerably more money on leases - that is why they like them. Not good for most consumers unless ..............If you own a business the lease rental is a deductible expense.
This is a failure in your antitheft system. The ignition is not reading the key properly, or the ignition is not sending the "ok" signal to the theft computer properly. (Theft Deterrent Module) Either way, the car is not starting due to the failure in this system. This is proven by the SECURITY light. The hard part is finding the broken link in the system's chain. This site will help you understand the problem, along with a possible 100% fix if you decide to go that route.
they are very expensive to fix, hard to find parts for. they drive very well, from a drivers point of view they are an excelent car, but sooner or later you'll need service and its going to cost more, you have to decide weather the great drivability is worth the extra maintance costs. but as for common problems there are not really any, the car is well built.
I have a Jetta 2005.5 and mine did this also plus the paint on the buttons on my electric windows were peeling off they replaced the radio and all the switches for the windows said it was a defect. hope this helps you
Our support team took your instrument cluster concern to the product engineers for their input. I finally have an answer ... however, I doubt you'll like the answer. Product engineering says the flicker you have in the cluster in cold conditions is normal. They likened it to leaving a laptop outside in cold weather. Upon start up, the screen would be slow to offer a quality display. This, in essence, is our issue with the instrument cluster, and there is no repair or update available for it. This is the answer from my dealer's service dept.
Where in Long Island are you? I live in Nassau County and did the Long Island thing for a convertible but a particular color combination and wound up at White Plains with John Tutino (great guy). Tried Catena, Rallye, Smithtown, Lakeview, etc. and he was best and they have a lot of cars, which surprised me (but can't tell that online). Anyway, you should be able to knock several thousand off the sticker WITHOUT having to pay cap cost reduction in this market. My payments for the 2008 are $100 per month less than for my 2005 because rates are lower and they took more off the sticker for purposes of the cap cost. Find out what they are doing for you as the sale price on the car for purposes of the lease. You also need to know they money factor they are using and then make sure that's the current rate for someone of your credit quality. Also get residual percentage.
Just leased a 2007 CLS 550 withPO1 option through Apple Leasing. MSRP: $71,815 Purchase price: $70,157 Down: $5,388 (includes 1st payment and TTL) Length: 39 months Payment: $1,079 Residual: 32,257 Apple leasing was great and I highly reccomend them. I started talking with National Vehicle Leasing. They offered a lower monthly price but th lease term is 60 months which they try to hide, obfuscate and misrepresent in every way possible.
