Reasonable Performance. Reasonable Fuel Efficiency. Great Ride And Handling. — I purchased an ES 330 March 2009. I have had it for over a year now. I have put 50,000 kms on it. I have had 0 issues with it so far. The acceleration is ample. The brakes are great. The handling is awesome, more so with the one I have over the base model because it has the 4 step adjustable electronic suspension, with 16 computer controlled variants. (It senses and adjusts the dampening rate to each wheel independently within 10 thousands of a second!) The build quality is superb. It is very quiet and comfortable. The only reason I ever find to stop on a long drive is to fuel up, or a washroom break. Mine has the Mark Levinson stereo which is the best factory installed stereo available from a car manufacturer, exclusive to Lexus. The Lexus stereo is great, it has approx. .10 THD where the Mark Levinson stereo has a .01 THD (THD= Total Harmonic Distortion) The Levinson sound is recording studio quality. The voice activated Navigation system is user friendly, and works flawlessly. The interior is very classy and you will find yourself wanting to touch every surface. The body styling stands out and is very sleek. The optional 17" wheels add a sportier look. The gas mileage is reasonable. This car is fun to drive and rolling on the tourque when accelerating from a traffic light or passing on the highway sets you back in your seat a little, as a confident low growl rises from under the hood. The handling is great for such a sedan and the VSC works very well in winter. With 4 snow tires and the Traction control on, makes your snowy commute a comfortable, confident breeze, with the VSC there to help correct your mistakes! I am quite impressed with its foul weather performance. This model year has a total of 8 airbags, and the highest safety rating at that time. I am confident in saying that you can expect MANY years of minimal or virtually NO trouble with this Lexus, (or any Lexus for that matter). Lexus has a huge reputation for reliability, especially for the ES models. They are even rated higher reliability than their parent company, Toyota. My previous car (which I still have) is a 1993 Toyota Camry. It has nearly 500,000 Kms on it and is still extremely reliable! So give one a test drive and great consideration. If you do buy one, I am confident you will find it as pleasing as I have! Happy motoring!, Ed, NL, Canada.

Pros

This is, by far, the most efficient car that I've ever owned! The highest mileage my cars have ever attained was my 2003 Buick Regal at ~91,000 miles prior to encountering major problems. My Lexus currently has over 135,000 miles on it and I've yet to experience major costs and repairs!

Cons

The maintenance costs, as compared to other vehicles, can be a little pricey since it's a Lexus. Fortunately, I've yet to experience any major problems.

It's An Outstanding Vehicle And I'll Probably Get Another! — It's have to give this vehicle two thumbs up! The ride is quiet and smooth, it handles curves and turns quite well and is extremely reliable! I'll probably purchase another one whenever it's time to get another vehicle! It's totally dependable!

Awesome Car — I Love this car! A/C and Heated Seats, Automatic shade in the rear window, sunroof and all the extras. It's fast when it needs to be but it's so quiet when I'm just cruising, there is almost NO road noise and the maintenance costs are almost non-existent other than your basic tires and Oil Changes. The only car I'd give it up for is the Lexus IS Model :) That's my next gift to myself!

Great Daily Driver... — So if you read my other revies, you'll see I had an SC430 that I was very underwhelmed with... said it was boring... this car I thought was still not something that would get your heart revving, but at the same time, as a daily driver, it had nice looks as well as a beautiful interior... the AWD system worked great... one of the better once I have driven in the snow... my only real complaint is that I'm a big guy and the front seats aren't that spacious... leg room is fine, but side to side there wasn't much room...

The Best — My Lexus is the best I could have got. It drives very good, easy to handle. It's big in the inside and a family side car. Next car I'm looking for a 2-door Infiniti. Other than that I love my Acura, Lexus, and Jaguar.

I Love The Car, It's The Maintenance That I Did Not Like By Vsmooth
