Best ES By Far
By J Parsons on


2008 Lexus ES 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


This is my 4th ES, the last being an '04. The '08 is a vast improvement in performance and design - best car I've ever had. Ultra Lux pkg with all options except dynamic cruise control. Levinson stereo is outstanding. Answers to some problems of other reviewers: 1. Mirror tilt can be deactivated by keeping mirror adjust swith in the center position. 2. Unlock button on key fob can be linked to memory system so seats can adjust pre-entry. 3. Glove box is lit, but only when tail lights are on. 4. Regular fuel is OK, but performance is better on premium. 5. When entering destinations in the nav system, be sure you're in the proper map zone for the address - not your present location.

Best Features

Levinson stereo, 5th generation nav system (much more intuitive than others), voice command system, backup camera, keyless entry/start, additional rear seat room, increased horse power, interior quietness, improved handling - but still some body roll in corners.

Worst Features

Improved side/rear visibility - perhaps with electronic "blind spot" warning system.
