Small nitpicks in a near-perfect car
By channing on
2008 Lexus ES 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Bought it over the Lunar New Year, got everything except Ultra Luxury package. Drives like it should. Have yet to take twisties but the car should be able to hold its own despite not being a sports sedan. Otherwise, wonderfully smooth and quiet--and fast! A few chinks in its armor of perfection: despite the stylish profile, the roofline is low as a result. I am just under 6'1" and I cannot sport an explosively spiky hairstyle in this car (I love contradictions). The glove compartment is unlit, which can be an annoyance at night.
Rear-view camera, tilt-down mirrors, power-adjust steering wheel, gobs of legroom front and rear. And that engine, what a monster in this moderate-profile luxury car! So tempting to be a leadfoot!
Higher roofline desired; illuminate the glove compartment please, what a silly mistake. A more foolproof center console button would also help.
