"Very well made, plenty of power and comfort. Heated seats are da bomb. Mechanically ultra reliable, no issues at all. Decent fuel economy, 22 in town, 29 on hwy. May keep this another ten years."

"My wife has had the car over three years and bought it from a side dealership. It is fully loaded with Navigation, sunroof etc. We travel to NY at least twice a year and the car drives well. We only take it to the dealership for oil changes and I have a side mechanic to take care of everything else. The car has over 240,000 miles on it. I would have to say that we just paid it off and I can see we could drive the car for at least another 100,000 miles. The quality of this car is great."

"I decided to purchase a Lexus when I rode in someone else's on a 1-hour freeway trip. This is the very best auto I had ever owned. I also purchased one in 2010. That, too, is the best I've ever owned. Both are ES. The comfort, the reliability, the performance are all quality standards. If I need, I will purchase another ES, for certain."

"My car has experienced a lot of freeway commuter travel. It has been dependable and a pleasure to drive. It is quite to drive, handles well and offers good acceleration, as needed. It is comfortable, spaciousness, has a good sound system and has offered outstanding reliability. Overall, great car!"

"I bought this car from a friend in 2004, it had 25,000 miles. I have spent very little in repairs and use regular gasoline, unless going on a trip - i.e. freeway driving. It has a "gold package" and is beautiful. I love the car and would buy it again!"
