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: Mirrors point down when car is put in reverse. Quality!!!!
Cons: Could use a heavier front and rear stability bar to avoid body lift when cornering.
Advice: Do not pay sticker price, if one dealer will not work with you find one that will, it was worth the drive to the next town for a better deal.Very little wind noise but could use more road noise reduction. Who would pay $37,000 for an Avalon when you could have this Lexus for $35,700? Drove a Jag S type for a year so tired of all the problems and noise.
Cons: No way to unlock trunk from the outside of car w/o using key remote.
Advice: Test drive ES350 first. Then go look at the Camry. I guarantee you will not want the Camry.Smooth ride. No noise from the outside. At first glance it looks like the Camry, but have to admit the rear end of the ES350 is NICE!! The Camry doesn't have back like that.
Pros: Push button start....oh I could get that in a Camry .
Cons: poor handling and steering
Advice: if you like LincolnsSteering is very loose. Floating feel, and when you go over bumps, beware you may get sea sick. What bothers me most is that it looks like a Camry.....
