2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
More luxury, less driving fun than my 92 ES300.
Major problems with the new 5 speed electronic transmission. Downshift from 5th into 3rd for passing when aggressive shift is needed delays and rpm builds for a second before lower gear engages. This has been of serious concern at times when immediate response was necessary. Lexus says they are aware of the problem. But no fix available yet.The car has sufficient power and pick up for other driving situations.
Quality of construction; nice leather and more interior room
