Although I do like this vehicle, I have
to say it totally lacks 'get up and
go'. It has major hesitation when
trying to pick up speed QUICKLY such as
getting on an interstate or crossing a
lane(s)rapidly to get out of traffic's
way. It has stalled badly in critical
situations. I know in the years
subsequent to 2002 the engine has been
upgraded to a 3.3 litre but I just
wonder if .3 is enough to do the job.
I doubt I would ever buy another ES
unless that engine was significantly
I LOVE the looks of the exterior front
end. The inside is beautiful too. It
has a quiet, smooth ride. Like gliding
along. Corners beautifully also. The
stereo system is great and the leather
seats are fabulous. Very roomy. It
also has a large trunk which really
comes in handy.
It needs a MUCH bigger engine. It
hesitates severely at critical times
when power is quickly needed.
