Pros

Quiet, quick, gas mileage, leg room, keyless start and doors, hands free (bluetooth), comfort

Cons

Tires will stop if the car senses slip in the snow. there is no over ride button on this year.
Voice commands are annoying because i haven't quite figured it out and i think the right screen has to be displayed for particular requests. i believe the 2010 has improved it. not enough dome lighting, premium gas, beige carpets show all marks, cup holder should be more forward for easier reach, console keeps opening by accident when used as the arm rest.

Love The Car, I Only Had It A Few Weeks. It Is So Quiet, Stylish And Loaded With Comfort Features. — Excellent riding car, great comfort. front roof line is lower than what i was used to in a marquis. much better gas mileage. great looking cars and built to last. handling is easy and quick steering. the acceleration is as fast as my previously owned 8 cylinder. very good leg room front and back. NOT A BASE LEXUS- i got the premium plus package, nav, hid adaptive headlights, back up camera and a lot more. to me it's a dream car Worst car I ever had for driving in the snow, the 2008 has no over ride so when the tires spin, the transmission (i guess) will actually stop the tires and then you cannot go anywhere and your stuck. you need the tires to spin often times to make it through the snow. I used to plow through the snow bank and up into the garage when I got home after a snow storm. now I have to park in the street until I snow blow the drive way. even a little snow, if it's slippery, I can't get up the driveway and believe me it's really not an incline. I know the 2010 ES350 has the override, not sure about the 2009.

A Sturdy, Good Looking, But Economical, And Fun To Drive — This car has been a pleasure to drive and is a very impressive, hardly requiring any maintenance. I have never heard a owner of a Lexus complain, just raves and compliments for a car that truly deserves it. Once one drives a Lexus I have not found a reason to change to another automobile.

Quiet and buttery ride. Powerful 6-Cyl, front-wheel drive. Luxurious.

Luxury, Comfort And Power. — The Lexus ES350 has the legendary combination of reliability, comfort, luxury and quiet power. No wonder most Lexus buyers never switch to other brands. Though the car feels like a million dollars, you would not know it by looking at it. Just love it.

For He Sticker Price, It Has All The Amenities For Luxury. — Everything from outside to the interior is smooth. The controls are easily accessible. Ride is smooth and gear shifting is almost unnoticeable due to the very tight gear ratio. Handles very nice.
