2008 Lexus ES 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
My first Lexus, but oh, what a disappointment. Love the ride and the power, but the car has developed squeaks and rattles everywhere. The whole panel behind the rear seat rattles/vibrates when I turn the radio up. The glove compartment door latch broke and won't close. It takes several tries for the voice-recognition system to get the numbers right. The interior materials are cheap: the glove compartment and coin doors are flimsy, and quality of the leather is third-rate. Also, this is not a car for tall people; all-around visibility is VERY limited; the roofline is low, the windowsills are very high and the windshield is very inclined, even the rearview mirror gets in the way.
Silky-smooth ride, like my dad's 1979 Buick; sporty but elegant; white back-lit dials; great gas mileage, break-neck acceleration, very quiet cabin.
This car has some of the most incredible design flaws (what were they thinking?) like no bodyside moldings; the button for the center console located right where your elbow rests; no phone keypad for the Bluetooth system. The audio system is cheap; the interior lightning is useless
