    Excellent, Comfortable Car — This is the second car I own and I have to say that it's the best purchase I ever made. I love the comfortable seats, simple but elegant interior, great handling and the lauded reliability. My only con is the softness of the break pads, requires extra effort to press.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Extremely comfortable, with a smooth, powerful V6 naturally aspirated engine.

    Cons: Breaks are too soft and driving can be boring at times

    This Really A Luxury Car That Drives With Ease! — Loved everything about this car, except I realized I truly like a car that corners like a sport car, which is more the GS or IS. The maintenance cost are low. You really don't have to worry about when something needs to be repaired, because the car will tell you due to the maintenance notification. That's half the battle in providing longevity to a vehicle that already has a history of a long life.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Ease of drive, comfortable, great leg room in front and back.

    Cons: If you prefer a vehicle that handles like a sports car....this is not for you!

    Pretty Good Reliable Transport, But Not The Marketing-hyped Lexus Quality Expected — Overall, comfortable,quiet,tastefully styled car. Less than usual expected attention to details in fit and finish with slightly misaligned steering wheel and front door rattles. Fuel economy has been suprisingly good ( and has been beating specifications. Steering a little 'floaty' on the road, lots of 'micro' course corrections constantly needed on highway. Recent major recall for the accelerator pedal malfunction (along with 4 million other Toyota owners) Biggest problem is so called standard 'Premium Audio' system is a tinny, cheap-sounding affront to the ears that is an embarassment. This disappointment blindsided me, since I took for granted the expected quality of the brand to carry over to the audio and did not pay much attention until after purchase. Mark Levinson upgrade packaged in expensive 'ultra' option package with odd unrelated accompanying features. Unless you simply don't care about the sound system at all, avoid this mistake and pass on the standard audio system. Since this car is marketed as a 'luxury' vehicle, a high quality sound system should go without saying, but costs must have to be cut somewhere. Or just drive without the stereo on, and listen to the quiet instead.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Quiet, fuel efficient, comfortable seats

    Cons: Cheap, tinny standard audio, major safety recall,expensive option packages

    Very Practical And Easy To Maintain — This part o the world (GCC) roads are straight and non windy, which makes the ES a really good car for everyday use. If its a drivers car you want go for a Infiniti or a bmw. Cost of ownership is really low. And reliability in the extreme inhumane weather conditions here is very good which makes it one of the most favoured brands here. Oh and the full option stereo is really good.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: everyday use with amazing stero(Mark Levinson)

    Cons: If U'r a Track person/ Likes spirited driving

    Lexus Es 350 Fun To Drive — In the short couple months I've had the car it's all I was hoping for. Aside from not having a hook in the back to hang clothes on and an awkward Nav. system. (trust me I've had a few much less complicated)it rides real nice : quite, smooth, comfortable and plenty of power. Also good amount of leg room in the rear which I also thought was important. The price was reasonable also for a car with these attributes. Just finished a 800 mile trip and enjoyed the whole trip ( except for the Nav. system, of course) Handled very well, good braking, very stylish interior with the wood accents, a fun drive for me.
