Auto Express's reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.

A debut entry for the Lexus mid-size executive sees it hit the top 20 of cars surveyed overall in Driver Power 2015. And while some of the traits we’ve come to expect of a Lexus are present and correct – very highly rated build quality, technology and ride quality – it’s not all a bed of roses.

Running costs are high, handling is poor and practicality really not what owners might expect of a sizeable saloon. A good result overall, but one that Lexus will hope to improve.

Ultra reliable, it's my 6th lexus and they have all been brilliant. Low road tax band is excellent considering the performance of this car. servicing is also reasonable for this premium brand, especially on the lexus service plan.

I use my car with 100%confidence in its reliability and suitability for purpose. Good on mororway poor in town but relative to what I drive re what was paid for it used is a buffer for the high running cost.

A very good, reliable and comfortable car in all respects. The only problem I have had was that the road wheels needed refurbishment and this was carried out by Lexus GB free of charge.

An extremely reliable and comfortable executive saloon. Seating could be a little more supportive (I prefer the seating in the Volvo S80) and the boot is a little on the small side.
