If you want a luxury car with an affordable price, buy the 2001 ES3 00 Lexus. The ride is extremely smooth and road noise level is low. The sound system is awesome. I am amazed by the pep when I press the gas pedal. It is a pleasure to drive, and I can now relate to other Lexus owners when they brag about their vehicle. I will continue to buy used, low-milage Lexus autos.
My favorite features are the memory driver's seat and the in-dash CD changer with the awesome sound system. I love my sunroof.
The memory seat adjustment could be placed in a better location... hard to reach at the side of the driver's seat.
