Quality performance vehicle.

I love pretty much everything about my Lexus es350! My red Lexus has a sleek, classy look, but still has a sporty feel and appearance also. It is a comfortable and very smooth ride and has lots of room in the back seat. I feel very confident in Its performance and reliability. This is my second red es350 and I look forward to a third in the near future!

I love the power, features and responsiveness of my Lexus!

I've been driving Toyota cars for nearly 20 years. When I went to buy a car in 2017, I decided to upgrade to a Lexus. The car handles beautifully, is very comfortable and has many luxury features (soft leather, heated seats, sunroof, backup camera, etc. ). I've had one service in the year I have owned the car and it was under $200. I love my Lexus!

Great ride, best car I have ever driven.

This is the best car I have ever owned it drives smooth and is very comfortable. The air is cold and the tires are smooth. I feel very safe when I drive this car and feel confident my wife does too. The paint scheme is nice and the interior is soft. The computer components all work nicely. The navigation system is very hard to use, however.
