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. Does this model have the sticky dash problem like some Toyota Lexus and Nissan cars?

  3. Scotty Kilmer
    you are stupid
    next time when talking to people how don't agree with you, be nice

  4. We're giving one of these to our won for his 18th birthday. White with red interior. It's been a great car. I think he's gonna flip when he learns that he's getting moms car which is in brand new condition

  5. Scotty only sees cars that are about to die or at least in the Emergency Room idk or just came back from War

  6. If u keep telling if u do this or not doing this you're stupid then Scotty if u don't read my comment you're stupid.

  7. Dan Neil of the WSJ says Lexus sales have been going up since they started using that ridiculous “spindle” grill. Butt ugly I say. The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor so NO Japanese cars for me.

  8. Good video Scotty, I currently own a 2006 Ford Mustang Gt and you gave me insight about owning a cheap luxury vehicle that should last many miles. I do all the work on my mustang itself. It has 168,000 miles with no service engine lights. I cruise for fun and I maintain it too. I'll keep an eye out for a back up vehicle like the Lexus you mentioned. Thanks!

  9. I own this exact car, (2014) same trim. I've had it for 3 years, put a hundred thousand miles on it and it literally has never given me a single problem. 10/10 I would recommend as a work vehicle/daily driver.

  10. Well what's the point of paddle shifters with a CVT gearbox. Stupid car would rather have a BMW 320d

  11. Dear Scotty Milner, i'm wondering what is your opinion about the alfa romeo giulia with the multijet engine. Thanks from torino, italy.

  12. That IS250 engine doesn't have port injection and therefore prone to have carbon deposit issue.

  13. It's an f-sport, a friend of mine has one, f-sport means fabulous, drives well

  14. It has DI carbon buildup issues, doesn't have the port and direct injection that the IS350 has…..

  15. Dont mind a rebuilt one but not a flood vehicle. Didn't Scotty warn us to never buy one? All those electronics will be failing from moisture.

  16. For those complaining about how dirty the car is, Scotty clearly said that the car had been in a flood ( flood damage). Obviously you have a short attention span. ☺ Hell Scotty probably brought this from a auction dealer to restore for himself.

  17. Those grill could never grow on me probably why I don’t own one stupid me lol

  18. Class-leading in the worst mpg for a 2.5L car and it underpowered. Ya it a Lexis and it will last forever but it is just not very appealing.

  19. I'd want the IS 350 with the body before this one (2013). Those were a healthy balance of looks and tech. I'd just upgrade the infotainment system with an aftermarket wireless CarPlay Unit.

  20. The most hideous looking car anywhere. The grill designers were smoking bad weed

  21. Scotty why are all your videos mislabeled. The headline said 500 bucks! You said nothing about 500 dollars.

  22. Is it me or is Scotty just filming every customer car he gets? Didn’t even clean the car interior and trunk…

  23. That’s the OEM Primer
    All come like that
    Old Lexus is250&350 have oil consumption issue

  24. Hey guys, I’m 19 years old I’m planning on buying my first-used car next month but idk any good-reliable cars, i was thinking about a toyota corolla or a honda civic, but what yall think? Any recommendations?

  25. Maybe the Chevy didn't drive right was because of the insurance company getting off cheap or shoddy repair.

  26. All my exes are driving Mercedes, BMW, audi, porshe…i drive my Toyota and it lasts every single one of their german luxury cars… i dreamt about get myself a BMW once i save enough money, but after watching so many of scotty's clips and many personal experiences with my exes BMWs… i will get Lexus now if i ever going to get a luxury car in the future.

  27. I did something I’m sure would give Scotty a haemorrhage: I bought a 2016 Mini Clubman new. He must think I did it for image and am now shelling out all my hard-earned cash as it falls to bits. Actually, I happened to be thinking of getting an IS250 at the time, but a petrol-head friend of mine who’d had one surprisingly said it was the worst car he’d ever owned: even his mother complained about rides in it. With the MINI, on the other hand, I was able to spec it exactly as I wanted it — with all the BMW tech aids like automatic cruise control, 3D live satnav, heads-up display, etc — and the car drives beautifully with no probs, cheap servicing — what’s not to like? I think he and a lot of Americans have got it into their heads that Lexus is somehow perfect and everything else is stupid. But actually car-buying is much more complex than that. And I’d much rather have a car I ACTUALLY LIKE AND MEETS MY NEEDS — even if it means paying a bit more. But the MINI wasn’t expensive anyway — especially considering it’s a competitor with Audi A3 sportback and Merc A Class. You don’t need rear-wheel drive. You don’t need a V6. Just do your research and get the car that’s right for you, don’t worry too much about brands or try to get cute and save money. Life’s too short. It’s like clothes buying — you’re much better off getting something that fits and suits you than something in the sales that you end up chucking out after a couple of years cos you never wore it much.

  28. Scotty: If you don’t have this cheap luxury car you’re stupid.
    Also Scotty: Doesn’t have one.

  29. Everything Scotty says about Lexus, I tell friends and family (i'm in the automotive industry 25 years)..but people HAVE to have their BMW's their Jags, their Audi's and their Mercs. I often get asked what should I buy? and without hesitation I say to them, a Lexus. They are often taken back, they say really? why? aren't they a Toyota?, I say yes, they are the ultimate Toyota which means they are the best car to own. I find it amusing that besides anything else, people are happy to put up with a smaller engine, smaller cabin or less equipment just so they can have the European badge. LOL

  30. Correct me if I'm wrong but this car has the 4gr-fse 2.5l v6. That's a direct injection engine that is prone to carbon buildup.

  31. I have one, 66k miles done and i confirm every single word Scotty says. Never had any issues.

  32. The prices are now going to go up on this vehicle after this video 7k car now 12-13 range

  33. My 96 Accord had a wreck with the previous owner replacing the bumper and fender.

    Bought it 16 years ago, always drove super solid. Strong drivetrain. Hasn't cost me too much other than stuff you would expect to wear out past 15 to 20 years. Now I need a newer car!
