Had to get rid of my Corvette. Getting Old and Fat

I didn't go directly from a Corvette to An ES350. First I drove a GS350 for three years. That was the transition car. It had crisp handling and a responsive engine. It was good enough to let me imagine still driving a sports car. I soon tired of the harsh ride. With the standard run flat tires I could feel every imperfection in the road. Time for something a little more cushy. Since I had grown very fond of Lexus QUALITY AND DEPENDABILITY, I chose the ES350 for my next car. It floats. There is very little feedback in the steering. The acceleration is adequate. There is no engine or road noise. All I hear is Frank Sinatra on Sirrus XM singing "Stangers in the Night". I think I am in LOVE again........

This was a big switch from an SUV (Toyota Highlander) to my beautiful sedan (Lexus ES350.) Everything of this car is beautiful. The interior's wood trim and the interiors tan leather upholstery really goes nice with the ice white exterior. We got our Lexus pretty fully loaded. The navi works excellent and the backup camera does it's job beautifully! This car feels like your riding on a cloud especially when you are in the back seat! It was the first Lexus and probably won't be the last!

Smartest choice in Luxury and Economy

The New 2012 ES 350 is Identical to the 2009 GS 450H interior that I traded in except for the few updated modifications and a much larger trunk space. The Body style is sleek and sporty with a wide stance. The Navi and Mark Levinson Stereo is with the S.O.S. assist and the 2 Sun Roofs with a complete Glass roof add to the attraction. The Ride is much more quiet than any Luxury car that I have Driven and although its a luxury Sedan its the perfect everyday car for going to work or traveling.

The Lexus ES350 surprised me. Contrary to expectations set by the automobile media I was expecting something dumbed down. This is way more than the "dressed up Camry" that some reports have stated. OK it is not a BMW M-class, but it handles very well, stays out of trouble and the 3.5 liter 6 with automatic transmission has power to spare. The electronics are all first class and easier to use than those on my Mercedes and the BMW that this replaces. Voice command works perfectly for the phone and navigation. The adaptive headlights make night driving a real pleasure. keyless entry is a big plus. The interior is roomy and finished very well. Trunk space is good and the full sized spare is reassuring. This is a first class product and I am quite pleased.

I love my new 2012 Lexus ES350. It is my first luxury car. I have only had it 6 weeks or so and have taken it on 2 short road trips. I am a small 100 lb. 5 foot tall woman. The seat adjusts up and down as well as forward and back giving me good visibility. The seating position adjusts for my 5'11' husband as well.

This is an excellent car. Of course, it is more compact than the LS my husband drives, but still roomy enough for my needs which includes a grandchild's car seat in the back. I have less than 600 miles on the car and am getting 23-24 miles per gallon on my everyday use. Lots of comfort and style and is great to drive.

Bought new, love it after 400miles. Great balance of luxury, economy, and handling. 20mpg around town. Bought a 1997 and drove 165K miles and still looked great. Only replaced oil, brakes, tires, and fuel. These cars are made to last and very enjoyable to drive. Tried for 6 months to buy used and found depreciation so low(<10%/yr) new made more sense.
