I have bought seven GM cars so far, and
would like to try something different.
So I went to the Lexus dealership and
drove the ES300. The car looks great in
the showroom. Interior material is
something that GM can't even match.
Build quality is good, but gaps between
body panels are wider than those on the
Acura. The driving experience was
disappointing: The steeling wheel
rattles when the engine is cold, and
the screen of the navigation system is
rubbing against the frame and sqeeking
noise can be heard when the road is bad.
I can't believe this happened on a
Lexus, becuase a New GM vehicle (say
less than a month old on Michigan
roads) won't do that.
Interior material, especially the
leather door handle.
