My Lexus changes that would keep me from owning.

2018 Lexus ES

Lexus does not have convenient locations so it takes me more the an hour to get there from where I live (I am not happy about that); car cabin could be a little bigger, hard to get in without getting caught: center console is hard to get a drink from and inside console is hard to open (very tight quarters)and see at night - no light nearby -(maybe some space in the door?) Difficult to place a flash drive in console; no place to put food if you are driving; I think the gear shift needs to be on the dashboard or steering column to make more room in the center; I am short so there’s a blind spot at the left side mirror to check traffic coming at you; the brake guard really slows you down when you do not it to - I would want it to shift on and off if needed. . This was a hazard for me while traveling on the road trying to accelerate when this feature was in action; I have great difficulty trying to drive while a passenger is trying to use the gps. I shouldn't have to stop, there could be a control for that. Other than that the car is beautiful, has great lines, is very comfortable if you don't have to drive very far and very reliable.

Very safe and comfortable ride.

2018 Lexus ES

The car is supremely comfortable. The adjustments you can make seem limitless and you can save the settings you are happy with in case someone changes yours. I bought it primarily for the safety features. The car has sensors and reminders so that you would have to ignore everything to cause an accident. It also has great features to assist you in case another driver gets too close or passes to closely behind you. And the side mirrors have lights that show you if something is in your blind spot. The handling and quiet comfort are what one would expect of a vehicle of this caliber.

I love my Lexus because it is easy to drive and has good safety features.

2018 Lexus ES

My car so far has been problem free. It has been very reliable and is very comfortable to drive in. It is also very quiet to drive in. It has many safety features which I feel helps with driving. It has lights on each of the rearview mirrors which alert you when a car is approaching for the side of my vehicle. It also has cameras in the front and back which are very helpful when parking the car. I also like the navigation system. It also has commands that I can give with voice commands such as phone, navigation, radio, etc.
