    Toyota Fails to Win Consumer Reports Recommendation for Lexus IS

    I love it - right in the title "toyoDUH FAILS"!!!

    Toyota Motor Corp. FAILED to win the coveted “recommended” rating for its new Lexus IS 250 sedan from Consumer Reports magazine, citing reasons including fuel economy and handling.

    The Lexus IS 250, which starts from $35,950, is “neither sporty nor luxurious” and had the “worst road test score posted by any Lexus sedan in recent memory,” Consumer Reports said in an e-mail. The handling is “short on finesse” and road noise is elevated, according to the magazine, which tested the 2.5-liter V6 version of the car.

    The poor review undermines efforts by Toyota to regain its lead in the U.S. luxury-vehicle market, which it lost in 2011.
