Perfect Ride

The ES 350 had been almost perfect prior to 2022. The two weaknesses had been a touchy infotainment system and front bias of the sound system. Both of these issues are now corrected with an easy to use touch screen and what appears to be an upgraded Pioneer stereo. The braking and suspension have been improved and the ride is simply silky smooth with plenty of power. Headlights have been improved as well. Once you drive it you won’t want the ride to end.

Nice Ride

I've owned an Audi A6 (3.0L), BMW 440i M sport Grand Coupe and a few others. This car does not perform as well as those, obviously, but that's not why I bought it. The ride is terrific, the interior is nicely appointed, performance is more than adequate and, the F sport functionality is worth the extra few dollars, for the adjustable suspension and more aggressive shifting. It surprisingly has a nice little growl when punched. I bought it mostly for the smoother ride and reliability compared to the German cars. The later get pretty expensive when the warranties expire.

A bit of intrusive wind noise?

Many great features on the es 350. So why only 3 stars? The bit of intrusive wind noise sounds as if a rear window is open. Not only at highway speeds, it starts at 35 to 40 mph. As for poor tire grip,I have the 18in Bridgestone tires that tire rack rates at 26th out of 29.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it

This is our sixth Lexus and fifth ES 350 model since 2002. In that time, there have been many technological innovations that were not available on the initial 2002 LS 430 but there has also been a subtle cheapening of interiors since then as well. Leather seats used to be standard in even base models. No longer. Gorgeous wood accents abounded. Now, most woods are "meh." The ride remains smooth - to the point where we've nicknamed our newest sedan "Clyde the Glide" in honor of the former NBA star Clyde "the glide" Drexler. We also call this car - a luscious deep blue Nightfall Mica "Sapphire" - full name Sapphire Zamboni for that smooth, glide ride. But as opposed to our 2020 ES 350 predecessor, this 2023 model's navigation system has been toyed and tweaked to where it no longer displays exits and other pertinent information when driving along interstate highways or turnpikes. Why was this very useful feature removed? It's certainly no improvement and the navigation doesn't even display exit numbers as you drive along those interstates. Please, Lexus, it is bad enough that the wonderful 3.5 liter engine that has been in the ES 350 for years will disappear into some turbo-boosted, four cylinder on premium gas by the new generation models in 2025. At least give us a complimentary software update on the navigation system on the 2023 model that will restore much-needed and helpful highway information once we enter an interstate/turnpike.

Perfect Luxury Sedan Ever

I really fall in love with this 2022 ES 350 F Sport Ultra White. The handling is so silky smooth and powerful powertrain. F Sport dynamic handling gives me a better feeling from turning and cornering, which reduces the G-force. The car is worth every value from almost every single aspect. I had the 2021 Accord Touring, and this car performs a whole different level of comfort and driving perspectives. Overall, this ES 350 gives you a lot more than you expect.
