Review

Well it has a nice ride & is quiet. Nice features. It is a little under powered, but I expected that. Many have complained about instability of the transmission - but it is my understanding that the ES300 has fly-by- wire control, & have experienced "shuttering" to different degrees - from the feeling that your on a bumpy road, to a low frequeny shutter after coming down a hill & getting ready to go up another. This is a classic unstable servo system - something that the engineers should have solved long ago. BTW, the transmission isn't all that great either. Should be a lot better for a 35k car made by Toyota.

Favorite Features

Nice ride, quiet, nice interior.

Suggested Improvements

Solve the engine servo control problem & get a better transmission
