Editor's Overview

For 2015 the Lexus ES sedan remains one of the brand's most popular vehicles, and for good reason. A combination of luxurious ride, plentiful features, luxury amenities, and even a fuel-sipping hybrid model bolster this sedan's reputation with the buying public. Combine that with sharp styling, a reasonable price and strong resale values, and you have a winning combination.

The Lexus ES offers a very satisfying ride

I love the ride of the Lexus and I like the technology. Specifically I like the rearview camera and the alerts in the side mirrors when there's a car in the next lane. Outside of wishing I had better gas mileage I don't have any complaints.

- Sherry w

Best car ever. I would continue to buy another Lexus.

This is the 6th Lexus I have owned. Except for oil changes, I never have any problems with the car. It is a joy to drive. It is always reliable and I never have problems with it. It is comfortable for up to 5 people.

- Eileen B

The vehicle has a reputation for the highest quality and reliability.

The vehicle is stylish and well constructed with some upgrades included. It performs well in most road conditions and provides a smooth ride.Unfortunately, the luxury comes with high maintenance costs.
