I purchased this car used, 6 model years old and 69,000 miles. It is very comfortable to drive on extended trips, smooth, quiet, soft leather seats, and a high quality sound system. It has soft and smooth handling, as its designed as a luxury sedan, not a sports sedan. My only problems have been a pair of new catalytic converters(warranty) and after replacing a rear window, the automatic switch is off so I need to manually stop it on the way up. I will definitely look at Lexus when my wife's Avalon needs replacing someday. This one will stay in the family for the rest of its lifespan.
Smooth ride. Very quiet. Great stereo. Silky smooth handling. Wood grain interior. Very comfortable seats. CLASSY.
More snap to the engine, which was done in the ES 350.
