You'll Like The 2008 Lexus ES If...

The ES 350 does an admirable job of defining the term "affordable luxury" as it applies to a premium midsize sedan. Offering a sophisticated driving environment, innovative design features, impressive build quality and well-proven Lexus dependability, its appeal remains strong to buyers seeking their own slice of the automotive good life.

Luxuriously comfortable for a mom of 2.

The Lexus es350 is amazing! From the heated/ cooled seats to the electric shade that gl you control from the driver's side for the back window. My kids are never too hot or cold since they have their own vents in the back seat. I also really love the sunroof, the smooth ride, the comfortable seats, and the touch screen. The only complaint I have is the gas mileage.

You will get your money worth. Luxury plus comfort.

The Lexus as 350 is a very reliable car. I get excellent gas mileage even after 240k miles. The vehicle is low maintenance. However, I am consistent with oil changes and other recommended check ups. The care is very stylish and looks good. I purchased the car new in 2008 and have had many miles of pleasure. This is a well built model that my whole family enjoys.

- Nancy S

It drives comfortably. I am depending on it to be reliable for a long time.

I recently had to replace my car. I found a good deal on this Lexus at a local dealer. I wasn't able to find anything else quickly. I feel pretentious driving a Lexus because I am not a luxury car kind of person. It does give a comfortable drive. I'm not so happy with the seats - my back is not so comfortable when I drive or sit in the passenger seat.
