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


Have had many vehicles over the years. Never knew that driving could be this enjoyable. Mine is Ultra Premium with 4500 miles. Levinson sound is great. Call it my magic carpet. Black with tan interior sends a chill up my back every time I enter it. Doors close like luxury coach. Could use more aggressive exterior styling. Wish it was AWD but without the floor lump as on GS model. Hope the suspension feels this good in years to come. Slight delay in acceleration when punching gas pedal takes getting used to. But at 55 I'm in it for comfort not racing.

Best Features

Black exterior with gold logos/tan interior. Solid chrome grill stands out. Levinson sound and awesome ride quality. Drove from Long Island to 250 miles N. of Toronto on 1 -1/2 tanks of fuel. I'll be spending more time driving in the States to enjoy superior roads. Just found a new hobby to enjoy.

Worst Features

Seat cushion could have slightly firmer foam. Wider left side arm rest. Ability to adjust auto tilt-down of side mirrors when in reverse - too low. Less hold down time on trunk release. More CD storage. Definitely should have iPod jack for this price.
