Our ES350 with the 3.5-liter V6 and automatic got 25 mpg overall; our tested ES300h hybrid got 36 mpg overall. The ride is decent, but not luxurious and handling can get sloppy at its limits. The very quiet cabin looks good but there is evidence of cost cutting throughout. The infotainment system is distracting and convoluted. Reliability is likely to be above-average

Awesome Hybrid by Sam Lakewood Washington on 01/14/2013. Trim: 2013 Lexus ES 300h sedan archive, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The car is well-appointed. The ride is noticeably smooth. Acceleration more than acceptable and surprisingly good considering the engine size and mileage. Great mileage, on the interstate 39 miles per gallon. The front and back seats are roomy.
Cons: A large car profile limits parking availability in compact spaces.
Overall review: This is my first Lexus and first hybrid vehicle and I couldn’t be more pleased. The car is well-appointed with many of the features you find in a similarly priced luxury vehicle. The ride is noticeably smooth, tranquil and quiet; perhaps the best in the price range. After 4 hours of interstate driving my wife and I felt energetic, fresh and totally without car fatigue. I find acceleration more than acceptable and surprisingly good considering the engine size and mileage. On the interstate I am getting 39 miles per gallon and with practice 40+ is a possibility. The back seats are roomy and not confined with ample head and leg room.
