"I've owned 8 Toyotas...economy models, SUVs, Luxury( Avalon) and a Truck( Tundra). Reliability is what I seek and Toyota always delivers. Lexus is no different offering luxury on top of reliability . Also great performance in fuel economy ( 27+ in city 30+ on highway) and acceleration far beyond my needs . On top of all this, residual value is excellent making resale easy with great return on investment.
I am seeking a second car and Lexus will be my first choice"
"While I do love my ES350 like no other vehicle I have owned. I do have a couple qualms. The seat heating can be confusing as to when its supposed to be on and when its not. The GPS is terrible to configure and setup waypoints. While other GPS use the idea that obvious is best, The lexus GPS either has not added the feature of searching for locations or just never thought people would want to look. Also when trying to find a location such as Main Street for example. it would show 50 or more lines of which it takes a long time to go through. Not a very friendly user interface. Last there seems to be a weird drain issue around the exterior mirrors. After washing a run off appears like a slow leak down the side of the vehicle draining from the mirrors. Its not there right away but you have to wipe it down after 30 minutes or more to keep it clean"
Pros: "Great Price, comfortable, lots of features"
Cons: "None so far"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I just bought our first fully loaded 2008 Lexus ES350. I drove it home from the dealership in middle of a snow storm and the ride was great. So many features and lots of comfort, I felt like I was in a different world while it was snowing. Lexus clearly puts alot attention in the design of these cars and caters to what the driver and their passengers want in a luxury vechile. I definitely recommend this car."
"I purchased the vehicle new for my wife's birthday. The vehicle drives excellent and she loves it. It gets great gas mileage and is well put together. I would not hesitate to buy another Lexus if she wanted one."
Cons: "Whats up with there being a cassette player"

"This car is the best I ever owned. It has a very quiet and smooth ride. It has great power and I average 25 MPG. Tis car was built for comfort. the best thing i could say is that I would buy another one"
"Went from a 2008 Camry to a 2010 Lexus E350. The driver seat is not the best, always trying to adjust to make it more comfortable.
Nice interior, plenty of rear seat leg room. Handling is not sporty, better on Camry. Very smooth ride but a little noisy for a luxury car.
Overall, great value for the money. This model is in same classs as the Mercedes C300, Audi A4 and the BMW 323."
"This is our 2nd Lexus, most excellent car! Dealer experience....Top notch!Service, even better! They treat you like you just spent a ton of cash.Oh i just did !Anyway just try one,you will love it..."
"I bought by ES 350 Brand New in 2008. Much roomier in the back seats then BMW, Mercedes, etc... The front seats can go back further too so i can stretch my leg out on long trips. BMW also has the worst cup holders in the world. lexus has them just right. you also get more for your money then European cars. Lexus is made for a luxury ride so it wont feel like a sport sedan like BMW. So far i have 16000 miles, and everything is great. The only complaints i have is the seats can make your butt numb on long trips because its not real comfortable. And the leather is already showing some wear in the driver seat. My 1997 ES300 had leather that barely showed wear with 90,000 miles."
"I got unbeliveable gas mileage on the highway. I went on a road trip and got about 35 to 36 miles per gallon on the highway. Very comforatble ride and very responsive and great handling.
"I bought my first Lexus last year and I would never buy anything else again. It has a very smooth ride and very nice design. It also has more room in the back then any car in the past I have owned.It is the best vehicle for the value. I have had Mercedes and Infiniti and Lexus goes above them in Consumer reports and feedback from consumers. The ES drives smooth and has a very quiet engine. I would recommend this vehicle to everyone. The track record for this car speaks for itself."
"I have had my ES 350 for 2 years now. I have driven higher end models of the Lexus since 1992. I bought the ES 350 because it seemed to have more room in it. I liked the LS but the center console in the front seat seemed large and in the way. The performance of the ES has been excellent. I am not too happy with the squeaks and rattles on the inside. I also find the motor does not idle as quiet as the other Lexus models and also the Toyota motors seem to idle a lot quieter. I would probably go back with another ES with hopes that maybe I just got a noisy one this time."
