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 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.

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 waited for over 6 months to purchase my used Lexus ES350 because my wants were very specific (color, interiro, miles, features). I've had the car for 3 months and couldn't be happier. It is the nicest car I have ever owned. Smooth, comfortable ride (it's like driving my sofa) plenty of power, better than expected gas mileage (averaging 27 mpg road and street). I love everything about this car.

I have bought this 2008 ES350 3 weeks ago. After being a Mercedes Benz (C320) owner for nine years, I've decided it was time for change. The ES350 is a great family car. As opposed to the C-class, it has good space for a family of four. It's interior is nice, consisting of good quality materials. Overall, it is a lot more luxurious than the Mercedes. Acceleration is very good; this car has a very powerful engine that won't disappoint you. The handling is great, contrary to what you will read by many expert reviews. What are the things that I don't like? First, interior lighting is not sufficient, even though my kids love it. O.K., LEDs are cool, but why so few? Also, rear visibility is not good - please buy this with the NAV and the back-up camera. Reliability so far is good, but 3 weeks is not a sufficient period to judge. Overall I am very happy so far.

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.
