The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Lexus ES 350 is a plush, soft-handling car that would make Buick proud--if Buick still built cars like this. Though it’s in a very conservative package, the 2009 Lincoln MKZ is a credible luxury bargain for those who value comfort over driving excitement.
