That it has a feature to let you know that you are too close to another vehicle.

My car has great performance because of the upkeep and care that it is given. So that it is kept reliable and I will have it for a few more years to come. As for comfort, it rides like a dream. It a smooth ride. My car was previously owned so the features were already in place. It has airbags in dash, doors and sides of windows. It has installed GPS, am/ FM radio with cassette and CD player installed. The speaker sound and quality are great. They are Bose. I have nine speakers in the car. It is truly a beautiful car. My advice to any one who is ready to buy a car, research is very important. don't go for what looks good. Make sure you check engine, brakes, car history, services that were done, if the car was in previous accidents and anything in between. You want to be happy with your purchase and if you are going to be making payments, you don't want to have to be putting a lot of extra money into repairs. That's about as much as I can say a this moment.

The car is so reliable. There have been no issues.

I am not a materialistic person, but I absolutely love from Lexus. I love it today as much as the day I bought her. She does not have one of these 4 cylinder engines. She will get up and go. So she is wonderful interstate and long distance driving. My car had navigation which has been so helpful to me. While other people are using their phones for maps and trying to drive. I do not have to worry. I put in the address, and off we go. I have had three grandchildren while I have owned my Lexus. They are in love as well. The backseat is so comfortable. The girls always want to ride in my car.

Keyless entry to do everything without taking the key out of my pocket!!

I love the sleek stylish shape; the soft leather interior that feels good on my skin; the leather steering wheel makes maneuvering easy; the sound system feels like I am sitting in an amphitheater listening to live music; the smooth ride and drive feels like a luxurious sophisticated sports car; the ability to walk up to the car, start it, drive to location, get out of car, lock it and walk away without ever taking the key out of my pocket has to be one of the best features. Also the safety of floorboard lighting that comes on when you walk up to the car is comforting.

- Tanya W

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.

- Elizabeth J

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.

- Chana J

Es 350 Lexus sedan, four door.

My car is a beautiful red, for it to be an older model it performs very well. It was a one owner and had 70, 000 miles on it when I bought. Black leather interior, automatic widows, ac/heating system, sunroof, good on gas local and over the highway. There are no mechanical problems. Bucket seats, , automatic gear shift, am/fm radio, CD player,

- Brenda R

My favorite detail of the car is its good GPS system.

It drives very well. The steering wheel also has a nice wood finish. One major issue is that the car takes premium gas because it is more expensive. I started driving a smaller, and this car is a little wider and its noticeable. Has seat warmers which are a nice touch. The car has Bluetooth but it barely works.

- Kevin Z

I love my Lexus when I travel it saves gas.

The Lexus performs well. I have not had any problems since buying it. The insides are very comfortable and the heated seats are a comfort in the summer and winter. The leather seats are easy to keep clean and the design is perfect for a family of four. The Lexus saves gas when traveling on trips.

- Jackie K

Luxury at its finest compared to other cars.

The car is a smooth ride. The car has a more elegant feel to it as opposed to just riding in a Toyota. I would buy the latest model of this car every time a new one came out. One of the problems with the car is that sometimes it swerves on its own out of nowhere, which can be annoying at times.

- Michael L

I love my 2008 Lexus es350.

I love my car. It has no issues other than minor fixes that need to be done. It needs tires, brakes, rotors, front struts, an alignment and tune up. I have never had any engine issues. Just everyday normal problems. It is still very dependable and I can always be assured it is safe.

- Crystal W

It is well made! The interior looks like luxury. The motor runs smoothly.

None!! The best car I have ever owned. Comfortable seats. Love the trunk space. It drives like a dream and rides like your on a cloud. I really like how quiet it is inside. All od the leather and wood work is exceptional. I would buy another car from Lexus in the future.

- Kim H

They make becoming Lexus loyal easy.

I love any and all Lexus vehicles. This will be the second one I have owned and have enjoyed both. It is easy to become a loyal customer and their customer service as impeccable. My only problem is with the speakers in my current car. Speaker in back is busted.

- Maddie Goodnight G

The sunshield in the back window.

Virtually no problems with this car. So comfortable and the heated and air conditioned seats are the best! Gets great gas mileage and is such a comfortable ride. Drive a lot from South Carolina to Ohio and ride is so smooth. Gets great gas mileage too.

- Nancy G

Lexus es performance vehicle.

The vehicle has high mileage and is incredibly reliable. It drives very comfortably and does well in all weather situations. I have also had regular maintenance which may have helped extend the life of the vehicle.

- Grace G

The Lexus is comfortable and quiet. My husband suggested that we buy a Lexus because it is so quiet, people in the front and back seats can carry on a conversation.

The Lexus is the nicest vehicle I have ever owned. The heated seats are fantastic in the winter, but the backup camera is the safety innovation I rely on. I wish we could afford the hybrid version.

- Susan L
