"The 2009 Lexus ES350 lacks the overall elegance that my 2004 ES330 has, but adds a lot upgrades and amenities, and the new styling that I find more modern, sporty and almost European in it's overall look, especially in the dark Black Sapphire Pearl color, with it's dual exhaust and swept-back angular headlights.
More importantly, however, are the many other reasons that compelled me to buy a Lexus to begin with: safety, economy, comfort, performance. When comparing the Lexus ES to other cars, many of which are both more and less expensive, many with "economical" 4-cylinder engines, I was amazed that the Toyota V6 beats all but the most economy-minded vehicles, like the Corolla or the Honda Civic. The V6 not only has the added power necessary for passing on the highway, but it adds a smoothness and quietude that can never be achieved with a 4 cylinder. The ES350's safety rating is one of the best. Comfort? It doesn't get much better, and I will say that my 2009 ES350 seems to be somewhat quieter than my 2004.
And, as other owners have mentioned, you are treated like royalty when you take your Lexus in for service. Let's face it, it's a car with panache that takes the owner to a higher level of respect. After all, in the US car culture we are mostly judged by the car we drive."
