Bought it when it had just 70K on it, and now at 75K it has had: TWO oil changes (leaking oil internally), Heater Coil replaced (no heat most of the "worst winter in HISTORY"), Thermostat replaced, Coolant/Coolant Housing replaced (it's now low again) has a very loud piston-slapping coming from engine (sounds like a diesel), and currently needs spark plugs (supposed to be changed at 120K) and an o2 Sensor. Not to mention the VERY soft paint (chips everywhere), the fact that it eats brake pads, and will most likely [non-permissible content removed] on me very soon (any day now). I am never buying a Lexus again, this car SUCKS!
Lesson: I should have bought the Infiniti
Doesn't matter anymore.
Take responsibility for this engineering nightmare
I have gone through many car's in my life.
I am hard on car's i admit so that is no help to me when it comes to them.
Any issues that i have had with this car have only been caused by issues that i feel would have been appropriate for the miles.I bought my 07 Es350 in Feb of 2013 with 44k. It is now 17 months latter. i have put 40k on the car. When it was still under factory warranty the passenger front axle boot was leaking Lexus Fixed it best experience i ever had when having to have a repair done. just 2 month ago with 80k on the car My Extended service Contract Replaced the Front and rear Struts all 4 of them
needed replacing. at 81k the W/P warranty covered it
Navigation option Sunscreen in rear even with tint it helps
Blue Tooth phone features only wish it had for the audio also.
the non M.L
audio system is great better than the M.L
I know im safe if something bad does happen cause damm the thing has like 14 air bags i think.
Love the heat seasts even in Florida i use them if my back hurts but i think i need them because of how uncomfortable the seats are at times.
the push button start don't have to take my key out of my pocket for anything
Well it's 2014
anything that i could think of has already been improved on the new models nothing to say here
I have had 50 cars in my lifetime.
the last five were the Lexus 250, 300, 400,330, & 350 since Lexus became a car.
This 2007 has 2 major problems which Lexus has not been able to correct.
#1 the engine makes a noise when cold that sounds like the tappet noise of previous years the engine idles rough.
Lexus tells me it is the fuel injectors and is normal.
My 97 Nissan Altima was quieter and did not make this type noise or rough idle.
#2 the A/C covers my dash board area with tiny white specs.
Lexus has change the evaporator twice and A/C filters numerous times.
It is still spewing and I think it might be causing me a health problem with my lungs.
I really am disappointed in the year
mileage , ride , comfort
fix the rough idle, fuel injector noise and A/C discharge of white specs into the interior.
I love my car but hate its electrical system.
I have had a number of defects with this cars electronics and of course they have all occurred after the warrantee has ended.
Lexus charges $150 just to diagnosis the problem.
On one occasion the issue was a loose wire which feed all of the sounds the care made.
sure enough plug it in and my car was fixed but i was down the diagnostic charge.
Recently my car had the air bag light go on.
I received an estimate for $8700.
A bit hi since my car is worth 11K at this point.
My local mechanic fixed the issue for $500.
Rear camera, blue tooth, back seat leg room.
when you launch a new model be more responsible in covering issues which are not regular maintenance items.
when small electrical issues occur don't charge $150 to plug in a wire.
This is my second Lexus.
Had a 1997 ES300 that was really reliable. Got another newer model in 06 and was never happy with the quality.
There were somethings that were just down right cheap and the car was built so that even minor repairs required 18 hours of labor to reach the places that need fixing.
Fuel pump went out quickly (replaced under warranty).
Flimsy plastic headlamp connector broke when changing a burnt out bulb ($800 to change a light bulb, really?).
Final straw was a $250 AC condenser coil went on what was still a "young" car.
$1800 in labor later decided enough was enough.
Traded it in for a BMW 5-series as my wife has had great luck with her last 2 Beemers.
Engineer a car that can be repaired efficiently.
Just about slugged the tech when I got an $800 bill to replace a cheap plastic piece that broke on the headlamp bracket.
