If You Don’t Have This Cheap Luxury Car You’re Stupid

If You Don’t Have This Cheap Luxury Car You’re Stupid


rev up your engines
today I’m gonna talk about the cheapest Lexus the Lexus is250
is it a good car or not, now this is a 2015 is 250 and yes it is that huge
scowling grill I personally find them absurd looking aside from the looks
which frankly you don’t see most of the time you’re driving a car you’re looking
out the front you can’t even see the front of the car so what are these
lowest price is two fifties really like as a car to begin with Hey look they’re
still made in Japan so yes they’re solidly built and under the hood we take
off this plastic junk and there’s a 2.5 liter v6 engine that’s what is 2015 it
has 204 horsepower not racing standards but plenty of power a normal driving
this thing’s got plenty of pickup what I like about it it’s a solid build Lexus
v6 with timing chain no sense to mess around with plastic and rubber timing
belts it’s also normally aspirated it’s not turbocharged so you don’t have to
worry about the turbocharger breaking and course there’s less wear on the
engine I’m sure the newer ones you can get what else 4-cylinder turbocharged
jobs that puts up more horsepower but this plane old v6 engine it’s going to out
last those things it’s a typical Lexus kinda nice leather
interior this one’s a little messed up cuz it’s been in a flood so all the mats
are gone but the interior is nice got big old back seat and a huge chunk that
use goes back in forever now these two fifties are made as a sportier car a
little bit tighter handling and the bigger Lexus sure it doesn’t ride as
smooth as my wife’s lexus es300 which has a much cushier ride but that’s
not what it was made for anybody look at the styling you can see the styling is
even more aggressive it does have a decent ride it’s not horrible right it’s
just tightest or handles quicker that’s all bells and whistles you can go eco
normal sport even has the snow button so if you’re in the snow it’ll
stay in a certain gear longer so it won’t slip when you’re taking off in the
snow or the electronically controlled transmission you can do paddle shifting
if you want down and up but of course most you want to know hey do they hold
up well yes they do hold up they’re well-made Lexus vehicles it’s not like
they’re cheaper made they’re just the lowest price one that you can buy and in
that respect Hey for me cheap Scotty there’s still too
expensive new so if I bought one I do just like my wife’s es300 did I buy I
would buy one of these used in a heartbeat if it was taken care of as far
as I’m concerned it’s a further refinement of life this original idea
where they sent some Japanese dudes to California where they studied Americans
and saw what kind of a luxury car do Americans want
well they realize that yeah big v8 one ride smooth huh but now it got sporty
ones with six-cylinder engines and really as fast as ice thinking and going
a long run if you’re only gonna be cruising around 75 85 here in Texas the
road to that speed limit 85 cars gonna have no problem about if you’re on a
pitch and you gotta get out of the way step on the gas it takes off really
quickly and as I said it does it with a normal engine it doesn’t need to use the
trickery of gasoline direct injection it’s just a normal fuel-injected v6 and
what’s really cool about it is it’s rear-wheel drive a classic driver’s car
go under here is a rear end axles go to the back wheels it’s a
serious driver’s car and now to make any fancier ones they got v8 engines and
their absolute screamers even with this v6 this thing’s plenty quick enough and
it’s a joy to drive but with none of the headaches of an advanced v8 engine where
everything’s hard to work on this baby everything’s out in the open it’s easy
to work on and of course it’s got the modern conveniences down here you can
see the electric motor it’s got an electronic power assist that allows you
to drive it either conservatively or in sport mode so it’s like cabin more than
one car rather conservative driving around you want to get serious push the
sport mode you can have a much tighter steering experience the push of
a button but being a typical Lexus they’re well built they rarely break
down so don’t have to worry about that system breaking down like you do with a
lot of other manufacturers you can see this one’s been wrecked that’s just
primer paints and they cut and bolted it on you can see it’s been spraying over
after it’s been fixed but this one took the wreck and drives like a dream still so
there’s solid enough and crumpled the front-end rebuild them and they still
work great go try it out well say a GM vehicle at a customer was an Impala have
a wreck like that the insurance company fixed that the car was never the same it
didn’t handle right and rattled and had leaks these things they getting wrecks
you can actually take someone put them back on the road and I you know the truth
about the cheapest Lexus out there the is 250 and why may not be the most
expensive Lexus but it sure was built solid, so if you never want to miss

  2. The GS has auto dimming mirrors and 12 speakers as standard and better options for interior colours. The IS however, is best BANG for your buck.

  3. My wife has a Toyota Corolla and I have IS 250. The IS is just an expensive Corolla but less reliable. . Tires cost much more and everything is more to fix.. I prefer to drive the Corolla. ………………….

  4. jesus christ that IS250 is filthy inside, my 06 camry looks like a new car inside compared to that. just look at 2:12

  5. All my recommendations Scotty saying if I don't have something he says am stupid haha who hurt you Scotty you good?

  6. The is250 does have direct Injection which is prone to carbon build up. The is350 has both port and direct injection which does not have the same issue.

  7. Scotty, Please quit calling your viewers "stupid" or "dumb" if they did not do as you suggest so often. It is insulting. Since you are an educated gentleman you should just state your preferences and let the power of your reasons compel people rather than using these rude labels. Other than that, a real cool channel you have going. Proof of that is that some folks on YouTube have spoof "Scotty" videos. Pretty funny stuff. Keep up informing us folks about vehicles and how to save big bucks on our rides! You are performing a great service. I admire how you call out vehicle manufacturers who are producing trash.

  8. Scotty: "If you do/don't do this to your car, you're stupid, if you don't own this product, you're stupid, if you don't own a Toyota Celica, you're stupid, if you don't send a thousand dollars cash to my house at the start of every month, you're stupid."

    Please Scotty, you're breaking my heart :'(

  9. Scotty: I have a 1990 Cougar, V6 3.8 engine, 160K miles, bought new. Problem: the new alternator does not charge the new battery. Could this be a bad ground strap? Any suggestions? Is there a fuse involved? I am stumped. I would hate to have the car crushed, it is in such nice shape. Thanks. Jeff

  10. As far as I’m concerned, just buy a Kia with 100,000 mile warranty and sell it after the warranty expires

  11. I love my lexus. My wife keep shaming on mine but her Lincoln hits the damn shop more than my car. Aaaaaand I pay for her repairs.

  12. Why does Scotty always downplay the 1uz just because of where the starter is ??? It’s still the best engine . So Someone Let me know

  13. Yo you getting out of hand with all the name calling. Common sense would tell you if everybody had your knowledge of cars you wouldn't have a channel

  14. Scotty I read reviews on the dash cam you were promoting telling us we were stupid if we didn't have one. I like your videos but you're stupid if you bought that dash cam. Reviewer was disappointed, thought it was no better than really cheap item. Any now you're telling us we're stupid again if we don't buy a used Lexus IS250 thats been in a flood. Wow. Now that is really being stupid. Come on Scotty get back to giving us better info and quit with the "you're stupid" comments.

  15. My wife has a 2015 and while it's pretty nice, the fuel economy is abysmal. 20mpg average for a 200hp V6? Also tends to chew up tires and Lexus says it's normal for the IS. She does like it though.

  16. Scotty this cars the worst car I ever driven at the dealership and I have driven too many cars,Sorry to say it but you got it Wrong this time

  17. Scotty, aren't you concerned around carbon buildup on the IS250 since it has only direct injection and not direct+port like the IS350 2gr-fse? Also heard these 2.5L like to melt the paint above them because they run so hot.

  18. It is a great car but it’s on the small side inside. If you want a good Lexus family sedan, the AWD GS 350 is the one to get.

  19. ok, it's time to move on to other channels where no one calls me stupid
    And speaking of which, it takes one to know one

  20. What I don’t understand is why the captions that describe the video’s content often say something like
    “If you do/buy/bring dot dot dot..
    You’re stupid”
    I’ve watched several of his videos, and while he may sometimes say it would be foolish to buy a certain car or part, I’ve NEVER heard him call anyone ‘stupid’..
    ..seems he’s a little classier than that.

  21. I wish you would make up my mind already!
    Honda
    Lexus
    Toyota
    Acura
    4 cylinder
    6 cylinder
    Sedan
    SUV

    Gezzzz! I got $40,000 and I want a “new car” and you got me all confused now! lol

  22. I have a Toyota Matrix and a Lexus IS. I'm glad I made some good choices. However I have the 2.0L turbo. Hopefully it doesn't give me too many problems in the future

  23. That IS was not in an accident. That's the factory primer coat behind the headlights. They all look like that. There is a cover for it, which was in the trunk…

  24. Scotty finally answered our Q's with the Lexus IS 250 🙌. I'm getting rid of my Ford Fusion and buying one ASAP 😁. Thanks Scotty, and keeping pumping out these informative car videos 🙂

  25. I was stuck between a new base model Toyota Camry, a certified used Avalon, or a Certified used IS250 awd F Sport. I choose the IS, and I believe its the best value. Not just in the Lexus lineup, but for used sedans in general. The 2.5l gets a lot of hate, but it's sooo quiet. It just purs under 3500rpm. Bummer it takes premium fuel though. Like Scotty said. Plenty of power for most driving. It's still made in Japan! However, I will say the back seat is non-existent if your front riders are 6' +. The trunk is decent though. Handling is amazing. You can find these off-lease with low miles, and they're about at that sweet spot for depreciation, so they're an excellent buy. Everyone wants the IS350, so these are overlooked, and dealers want to get rid of them. You can't go wrong with any Lexus for the most part, but this one is a refined gem.
