2019 Lexus ES Stands Out in J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study

Lexus remained the highest-ranking nameplate for overall reliability among luxury car brands across three years of ownership*, it's true; and this, for the eighth year in a row. But it was Lexus ES that stood out from its new car and SUV siblings to earn top honors in the compact premium car category, and perhaps nowhere better can it be seen that in the all-new 2019 Lexus ES 350.

Many factors contributed to the J.D. Power VDS appraisal, to be sure, but we at Lexus of Lexington can think of even more reasons why its enthusiasts love it for its reliability.

  • For one, because of its more powerful 302-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6, paired with a Direct-Shift eight-speed auto transmission. Not only does the duo deliver drive-time confidence. The latter also features a throttle-blipping function, making for both faster, smoother gear shifts and enhanced acceleration and response around corners -- in short, distinctive handling you can depend on. You can likewise count on excellent fuel economy, as 2019 ES 350 can get up to 22 city mpg, 33 highway mpg, and 26 combined mpg according to EPA estimates.
  • Secondly, the new ES 350 is a safe bet, and thanks to more than just a rigid chassis engirded by front and rear crumple zones and an advanced 10-airbag system. It also features our automaker's exclusive Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 standard, as well as options like blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, parking assist with auto brakes, a standard backup camera with dynamic gridlines, and an optional panoramic view monitor. That's comprehensive peace of mind, from your driveway to the highway and back again.
  • Last, but certainly not in the least, the luxury sedan offers the comfort of seamless technology for the drive. Its centerpiece: the Lexus Enform system. You can use it to access apps, get emergency and roadside assistance, find help recovering your vehicle if it's stolen, start your engine remotely using your smartphone, smartwatch or Alexa-enabled device, manage climate controls, lock and unlock doors, connect several devices to the Web via Wi-Fi, get dynamic optional navigation routing and personal route assistance from a live response center agent, and more. In other words, from setting out to heading home, Lexus has you covered.
