2009 Lexus ES 350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Smooth serene (very minimal wind noise at 70 MPH) luxurious ride on freeways. My previous '93 LS 400 (AIR SUSPENSION) however, was still noticeably smoother on bumpy roads. The Mark Levinson's CLARITY is auditory nirvana. Bluetooth, navigation, parking assists, and backup camera are highly useful features. Glovebox is small; SECRET: there is an elastic strap in its upper right FRONT corner to secure the HUGE owner's manual to the small ledge at the back of the glovebox. Center storage console's capacity is better in the 2010 design. Only serious competitor for IMMEDIATE VALUE is the Hyundai Genesis, but can be jittery over bumpy roads with unknown reliability and likely faster DEPRECIATION.

Best Features

Mark Levinson, Bluetooth, Navigation, Rain sensing wipers, Park assist, Backup camera

Worst Features

After less than 3000 miles driving conservatively (ie, COMBINED mileage of 27 MPG), there are a few small rock chips on my front bumper/hood. The paint is SOFTER than my previous LS. Allegedly, Toyota has a new more RESILIENT clearcoat on the new 2010 LS 460. A clear bra may be the solution for now.
