My wife and I were looking for a reliable car. She left the responsibility for me to find a car that would best suit us. Originally we thought about getting an SUV and the Acura MDX, the Lexus RX, and Mercedez Benz were on our list. We knew we were going to buy used, so we wanted to get the best bang for our buck and a lot of the SUV's in the price range that we wanted to spend were older models with a lot of mile. So, we figured let's look at a four door sedan and the Lexus kept coming up at the top of my research as a reliable and comfort luxury car. Needless to say we went to the Lexus dealership and test drove the 08 Lexus 350 that had 40,000 miles and was instantly sold. I am 6'3 and the car has plenty of space me, more space then the BMW 5 series. It's been 3 month since we purchased our Lexus and so far so good. The car drives like you are on air and the pick up speed is great! I am looking foward to our first road trip in our Lexus so I could put on the open road and really see what my Lexus is made of. My only complaint is the button on the arm rest is in an odd area, so at times my arm hits the button and opens the arm rest compartment, also the interior lighting is not that bright, so I use the viser light which is really bright. This is our first Lexus and we already are looking into getting the Lexus SUV in the future.

I purchased my 2008 ES350 with 19K. This is one amazing car. I love the power and performance of this car. Interior and exterior is wonderful. Ride is smooth and quiet. I got a fully loaded model with navigation. Love the backup camera. Only complaint is the engine is a bit loud at times when accelerating. This is probably because they now use timing chains instead of belts. Engine on my 2003 Acura TL was quieter. For a car that costs over $40000 brand new I expect an engine that is quieter and more refine. Aside from this small issue this car is sure to please!!!

I own this car for over 2 years, and Love it, It has a very comfortable drive. I have had some issues with handeling and dont know why, it seems to weether on a side at times, apart from that, its a pleasure, lifts you light like a feather even on bad roads and provides a great pickup when required, times like merging etc. So far We are averaging at 24.8 in mostly city roads and 2 distinctly different driver handeling. Would certainly recommend it.

A good car, but a few things to be desired

by from Savannah, GA on October 8, 2008

I brought my '08 ES 350 in July '08. I am fairly happy, but I have a few concerns. I have had laser surgery on my eyes three years ago and my vision is very good. With that being said, the interior lighting in the car is horrible. When I need light in the car, I open the sun visor with the light that almost blinds me and lights the entire car. At 1,500 miles, I started hearing a ticking noise when the engine was cold and I started to drive. The noise goes away about 5 to 7 minutes later after the engine has warmed up. It's embrassing to me for the amount of money that I spent and for it to be a luxury car. At 2,900 miles, I was like "I put out almost 40k for this car and this is not the noise I want to hear, or have my neighbors hear, everytime I leave my residential area. I took the car back to the dealership and they tried to tell me this is normal for this vehicle. This is not what I want to hear. They gave me a loaner car and I do not hear the ticking in that car. I dont want people to think I use diesel gas, instead of premium. But on the PRO side - I love the way the car drives, it has a lot of pick up and go. I have plenty of interior room compared to the Cadilliac CTS, I was going to buy. The ride is smooth and I look very good in it, :-)

This Lexus is so comfortable and spacious. I barely hear the engine. I had it for 4 years now and it is extremely reliable. It gets good mileage. I do recommend the Ultra Luxury package for the Mark Levison upgrade audio system which is just fantastic, upgrade rims, double moon roof, softer leather seats and the sun shade on the back. Very pleased with my 2008 ES350.

The is one smooth Reliable sedan, I had my E350 for 2 years now and 69k miles later, absolutely perfect. At 70% highway, I am averaging 29.2 MPG. The car feels solid, almost like driving a V8. Get the clear bra to protect the paint from chipping.
