Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Audio screens with nav.
Cons: Nav. voice recognitionQuite, solid, smooth, responsive steering and engine. Cabin is comfortable and well appointed. Lot's of standard features that you could only get in a package on another car. On the highway it truly drives itself.
Great car, not so great transmission
Cons: TransmissionI really love this car, but replacing a transmission at 80000 miles is unacceptable in a vehicle in this price range.
Pros: Destination Assist
Cons: Need longer trunk accessGreat appeal and comfort. Rides smoothly
Lexus Vs Avalon
Pros: It is quiet
Cons: quality of paintLast car was an 05 Avalon, I liked it better, bigger and comfortable. Current Lexus ES 350, Low quality paint, back up camera and sat radio works when they feel like it. Would definitly not buy the Nav. package again, the maps are no good in central Alberta, would have been nice had the sales rep told me that up front. Overall not a bad car but liked the Avalon much better
High Quality ; Excellent Performance
Pros: Overall quality and exceptional performance
Cons: Complexity of some controls (wiper and lights)I purchased 2010 ES 350 in Dec 2009 and couldn't be happier with the car @ 4000 miles. The quality of design and manufacture is very evident throughout; but I'm most pleased with the sound control and comfortable, solid ride under a variety of road conditions.
