Our second Lexus continues to be wonderful
Many people believe the Lexus ES350 is just a ‘rebradged Toyota Avalon, and while it is easy to understand why this is both true and reasonable. In our own family, spread across California, we have believer’s in ‘both camps.’ Here in Orange County we’ve had two Lexus ES-series sedans. Up north, our family members have gone thru 3 or 4 Avalon’s. Not because they have worn out, or become unsightly, but because their vehicle outlook is much, much shorter. We, here down south in SoCal, put multiple hundred of thousands of miles on our Lexus’ ES 300 and ES 350 sedans. As a result it is my opinion that all family members enjoy very reasonable costs of ownership due to our personal preferences. It is almost impossible to argue that either the Toyota Avalon or Lexus ES350 is not a great car to own and drive for a long long time.
