A New Breed of Lexus ES
By Rob E. on
2007 Lexus ES 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I've owned many cars from all the German & Japanese manufacturers. I fully appreciate performance and luxury in a vehicle. For this purchase, I was in search of the best combination. The other cars on my list were the Acura RL & Infiniti M35. You might think that the ES doesn't belong in the same class with the others & it doesn't... for performance. With the ES Ultra-Luxury package it's close to the same price class. The ES offers the best overall combination of comfort, technology, simplicity, luxury & MPG. In short, it's a better value than both the others. It will not handle to the RL or M35 standards, but try it. It's a new breed of ES that is sure to please.
Mark Levinson sound system that includes 6-disc DVD-Audio, XM Sat, MP3/iPod connection. Generation 5 Navigation that has more options (Bluetooth and back up camera come to mind)& the best resolution ever (32,000 colors). Panorama glass roof & Smartkey access. HP to MPG ratio (272HP/21-30 MPG) .
Tighten up the ride a bit. It's good for a luxury car, but firmer steering and less body roll would be more enjoyable and certainly be more competitive.
