2007 Lexus ES 350 User Reviews
- Front seat room, more pickup than one needs, outside appearance is pleasing
- Rides too rough for a Lexus, back seat is for 5'6" and under, interior dash is not up to Lexus stds.
I own a 95 GS 300, and believe my car has more integrity than the new ES 350, including ride, outside noise, luxury (leather), and rear head room. I have test driven the ES 350 four times now and just can't pull the trigger. If you are taller than 5'6", you'll hit your head on the top of the door opening when you get in the back seat. Ouch! Then when sitting in the back seat, my head was 1/2 inch from the ceiling. I'm (6'2"). The GS350 is much better car, with better sound proofing, luxury, appointments, not much better on the head room however, and adding app. 6-8K to the price for the GS, not a great value for the cost, with the exception of retaining its value....read morehide

- Smooth drive with 18" wheels on.
- Ugly design dash board with u-shape upside down.
When the car went over 50 mpp, it sounds like you leave windows open of one-quarter inch. The side view mirrors was in the way and not automatic fold.
Need redesign for 08 are
1. Inside dash board
2. Side view mirrors

- Plenty of power, great seats, good GPS
- Engine has loud knocking, Transmission whines
This is the third Lexus that I have owned. The first two were LS 400 and I could not have asked for better vehicles. The 2007 ES350 is a huge disappointment. Lexus dealer admits that the engine has a knock but states that it is normal. The transmission whines and does not always shift smoothly. WISH I HAD NEVER BOUGHT THIS CAR!!!...read morehide

- Transmission failure during test drive at 11,000 miles - poor service response to known issues
Brought car in for service complaining about transmission with 11,000 miles.
Had prior complaints about shifting and rough performance and was told everything's normal.. The time bomb eventually went off during a test drive with a service technician who stated 10 minutes before the car was thoroughly tested and in perfect working condition.
Complete failure of the transmission ensued during test drive 15 minutes later.
Still pending repair and inspection of cause. Could've had a real problem with a breakdown elsewhere....read morehide

- Nice car but many little problems that the dealer couldn't fix.
- Rain sensor is a nightmare. It never worked. ,,,,,,
Brought the car back to the dealer about six times for the same rain sensor problem and they weren't able to fix it. Front brakes are too small for the car and only last about 20,000 miles on new brake pads and rotors. Dealer only admitted to defect the first time and refused to upgrade brakes....read morehide

- Unbelievable rattle
Shortly after purchasing the car it developed a rattle that sounds lilke a machine gun going off. Dealer has attempted to fix the rattle coming from the left roof area on 8 different occasions unsuccessfully and Lexus seems to be washing their hands of it. I've had this car in the shop for this one problem more times in the last 6 months than the last 5 cars I've owned combined. Doubt that I ever buy a Lexus again even if they finally get it fixed-I didn't buy it to make trips to the dealer...read morehide

- Good gas mileage
- Transmission is horrible, engine problems within the first year. Worst Lexus ever
Within the first year with this car, I noticed a small oil leak. I took it into the Lexus dealer and they had the car for one week due to all gaskets in the car needing replacement. One week after that, the transmission keeps slipping. Another week into the shop. This is my second lexus and I definitely will never buy another. Cautious with the oil leak and the transmission...read morehide

- No trim specified for this review
- COMFORT, HANDLES WELL
- BACK DOORS AND TRUNK HOOD DO NOT OPEN WIDE ENOUGH
THIS IS MY 3RD LEXUS AND THIS MODEL WAS NOT WELL THOUGHT OUT. I'VE HAD BRAKING PROBLEMS, BATTERY PROBLEMS,SOMETHING THAT NEVER HAPPENED W/ MY PREV. ES.CARS.
THE TRUNK SEEMS SMALLER & BACK DOORS ARE A TIGHT OPENING.
SOUND SYSTEM IMPROVED.........

- Lexus reliability???
- Lexus reliability is not the same as it used to be!
Rattles, squeaks, and "rolls" --- Body roll is horrid, noises from cabin compartment are annoying. TYpical Lexus attitude. Returned it got my money back. Had previous years models of GS300 and LX470. Something has gone awry at Lexus. I have had it with Lexus. Years of dealing with typical a-holish holier than though attitudes. Going back to Honda. Never any problems with Honda and they are supposed to be completely redesigning the new Accord for the Fall. I figured my 2000 GS300 having all the rattles after only 90k on it was only a fluke. GOOD BYE LEXUS....read morehide
