Mr — This car is solid, if unexciting, luxury, and well-built: it has never had a problem. It's not fun to drive, but is highly dependable and quite comfortable. The turning radius is too wide, but other than that, I have no complaints about performance.

Great Car — Love the interior, complete class, great options. Love the retractable sunshade in the rear window. Heated / cooled leather seats are very nice too! Excellent sound system. Quiet and smooth ride! Great graphics on navigation system.

Cheap Luxary With Japanese Reliability — It's an ok car, but It has a dead spot in the Accelerator, and the brakes seem to either be on or off. The transmission lurches and never seems to be able to pick just one gear. Since it's a Lexus it will most likely last forever. The A/C compressor freezes up on long trips however. It could also use a rear windscreen wiper. You can not see out of the back if it rains. The headlights fog up, but are still visible. It appears to perform best (brakes, steering, transmission, etc.) under full throttle. Not my favorite car, but it is a good car, and it's well built. Do not get the idea that it is a high performance car however, It isn't.

None!

Above All Expectations — This car is amazing. We have looked for reasons to upgrade but can't find any. When we do upgrade it will be another Lexus. Anyone who says these are just over priced Camry's has not been in one. Have owned 4 Camry's. (155,000 miles as of 05/31/14)

Great Car, Would Buy Again — This is one of the nicest cars that I have owned. It has all the bells and whistles that you could ask for. Good size for a family vehicle and plenty of power. I love the air conditioned seat. j

Wife's Car — This car has been very good on gas, My wife loves this car. She loves to drive this around town, she is able to get into parking spots without any trouble. She feel very safe in this car. We have had no trouble with this car. We do the maintenance as needed and jsut keeps going. It is a well built car.

A good around town car

Cons

Styling

Nice And Smooth. Good Car Worthy Of Lexus Badge. — A nice mid-size car. A good work-horse, but with comfortable ride for around town work. No issues in terms of maintenance. Very reliable. Has a lot of nice appointments like ventilated seats, wood, GPS, xenon headlamps, Mark-Levinson stereo, rains sensing wipers, rear shade, etc. Can do better with more engine power. I find styling a bit disappointing.

Your First Car Is Always Your Best Car. — At first, I really didn't like my car I thought it was too "old person-y" but I have fallen in love with it, I can't imagine myself with another car (well maybe the newer model (es350), but who doesn't want that) . It handles like you expect a luxury car to, it accelerate beautifully, it IS a gorgeous car. Everything in it is automatic which is wonderful, the stereo system is phenomenal and idk I just love my baby.
