Love my ES350
"I purchased this car used. I have always wanted a Lexus but could not afford it. This one was 5 years old when I bought it just over 2 years ago. I normally would not buy a 5 year old car, but the mileage was 33,000 and in show room condition. A truly loved and cared for car. It does not have a screen with rear camera but that's OK. It has so many other options, such as moon roof, hands free calling, Lexus version of On Star which I do subscribe to, satellite radio, heat and a/c front seats, rear window screen, electric driver and passenger seat and I love the automatic windshield washer. Leave them in position and forget about them. They come on when needed at the speed appropriate for the rainfall. The interior is very nice well appointed. There are controls for the radio, and bluetooth hands free phone on the steering wheel. The exterior design is very nice and does not have that large black grill that I really don't like. The ride is smooth, and extremely quiet, no road noise to speak of.Gear shifts with no noise, no grinding. Easy to shift when needed. 31 miles to gallon on long distance, 22 or 23 local. Good interior lighting front and back. I have always heard that if you own a Lexus you will never buy another car. I can honestly attest that is a true statement. I can't see myself in any other brand going forward."


The layout and ease of reach


Nice design and very streamlined.


Handles beautifully and responds quickly.


Comfortable seating in rear. I don't have small children but would assume car seats would fit well.


Excellent gas mileage, excellent long range. I have gotten over 500 miles on one tank. insurance a little high, but it is a high end car.

"I have leased seven Lexus cars. This one I bought out of lease because it was such a reliable car. I like the smaller grill style rather that the change to the larger grill style starting in 2013. I also like that it has a 6-disk CD player which most cars don’t have anymore. It has heated and cooling seats. This Lexus ES 350 still has a lot of giddy-up for an eight year-old vehicle. I also like the color, Matador Red! "

Smooth, fast, great fuel economy
"The ES 350 IS well engineered and has plenty of power. Fuel economy is exceptional at 30mpg on the freeway. The car is comfortable for long trips with plenty of leg room and great sounding speakers. "
