2007 Lexus ES 350 Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I was looking for a quiet car with Sirius Satellite that would make my many long days of driving less painful. After checking Acura and Infiniti I went with the ES, and I am very happy with my choice. The ride is quiet, the engine powerful, and I am getting 27 MPG. Can't beat that.


Best Features

Quiet, gas mileage, good looking car.


Worst Features

More head room. I am only 5'11" and my head is less than one inch from the roof.

Review

Transmission was bad off showroom floor. It was my wife's car and I never drove it and would not believe her Lexus transmission was bad until we took it in for service at 3000+ miles. Transmission jump in first almost caused my wife to rear end car in stop & go traffic. The transmission had to be replaced requiring entire motor & front end to be dropped out from underneath. Not a happy camper!


Best Features

Navigation / Bluetooth System


Worst Features

Dealer test drive vehicles before delivering them.

Review

This is not the perfect car for me (I'm a driving enthusiast who wants a sportier car). However, for someone who really wants a classy, reliable, beautiful car focused on luxury (my wife), this car is a good value and a good choice. I enjoy riding in the car and driving it is pleasurable for a daily commute. If great handling is your thing, look elsewhere. If you want a luxurious car with great build quality and great creature features for a good price, I highly recommend it.


Best Features

Keyless ignition/smart key settings. Bluetooth. Satellite radio. Quiet ride on highway.


Worst Features

Better handling (although this is not the point of this car). True USB iPod interface (when this car came out, few if any had it).

Approaching one year and reliability has been terrific; no issues. Get 23.8 MPG overall, with mixed local driving. Highway travel gets 29 MPG.


Best Features

Air-conditioned seats, glass roof.


Worst Features

Front end scrapes curb - too low. Must be at a stop to use really use navigation system. Storage compartment easy to hit with driver's elbow. Interior lighting too dim. some controls (garage door) impossible to see when dark. Door lock symbol too small.

Review

Smooth, strong engine. Transmission sluggish. Nice fit & finish. Competent ride, marginal handling and braking, very light steering. Speedometer error, reads high, about 10-12%, true fuel mileage is less than indicated. Significant tire noise on rough surface roads is not "Lexus quiet." Paint is very soft, it chips and scratches easily. Not comfortable for most people over 6' tall, especially the driver seat, marginal headroom. The more you look at the interior the cheaper it appears such as door panels, carpet, glove box, dash. Dealer and Lexus support not impressive. Read the Privacy Policy, Lexus may share your personal info including SSN with anyone. Sold the car after 9 mo.


Best Features

Engine, fit and finish (except paint durability).


Worst Features

Replace the cheap interior, better seats, improve steering feedback, brakes and handling, not intended to be a sports sedan but the car's feel is very numb.
