Lexus great people and know people.

The Lexus that I drive is in general a great car. The car rides smooth and handles very well. The speed of the car is beyond satisfactory along with deceleration and brakes. The interior of the vehicle is the luxury with leather upholstery and coated wood paneling. The seats are comfortable and spacious with 5 people maximum capacity. Maintenance for the engine of the car is minimum but consistent. I think overall I really enjoyed the car.

The Lexus experience: dare to buy!

Just like any other car, making sure that the tires, oil, engine, transmission and so far are updated and checked yearly. Other than that, it's a very low maintenance car that does not give trouble. As far as the features, it's not as modern like other newer additions but it is sufficient and reliable, which is all that is important to me. It does have seat warmers, which come in handy during the winter months.

The 2012 Lexus as is a safe and sporty car.

This model Lexus 350es is a very reliable and comfortable car. It has clean lines and always looks nice. The mileage that I get on this car is reasonable for a very comfortable luxury car. I have two granddaughters that I transport, and I feel this is a safe vehicle to do so. We have owned this car since 2012, and have had no major problems other than replacing the battery and tires.
