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


I have driven an Acura TL for the last five years.
Let me unequivocally say that the TL is a superior vehicle except in one area.
The lexus has a plush and very comfortable ride.
The panel on the Lexus is completely dull.
The low roof line really compromises us guys over 6 feet tall.
The lexus lacks many features that are standard on the TL, like satellite radio.
Upgrades on the lexus like land navigation are very expensive to add.
This is not a sports sedan, lots of body roll in the curves.
Decent power and excellent fuel efficiency for a v 6.
the paint job on this model really sucks!
Two paint chips the day after I drove it off the lot and there are more!
Loud engine!

Best Features

Standard fog lights Nice sizes trunk Excellent gas mileage Nice exterior

Worst Features

Better quality paint Engine too loud Low roof line Better sound system Better up to date dash Front brakes Too much body roll in curves

Interesting review, especially for us guys over 6 feet tall. If what you are saying about the low roof line is true, then my hair will be touching the roof, which is no fun at all. Is TL any better in terms of tall drivers' accommodations?
