ReviewJust completed 500 mile trip in a new
ES. Outstanding for quiet, comfortable
ride, great stereo, and soft leather
seats. Minimal to no road noise with
Michelin tires. Fit and finish is
perfect - as expected of Lexus. New 5-
speed automatic transmission is very
smooth. Plenty of head and leg room in
front seats for six-footers. Lexus has
made major improvements since the ES
was redesigned last year. Averaged 27.5
mpg, and hope to improve on that after
engine is completely broken in.
Best FeaturesInterior quality and comfort. Leather seating and wood trim is unmatched by rivals in my opinion.
Worst FeaturesNeeds a bit more horsepower. Currently at 210. Should be closer to 250 to be similar to competition (Acura TL-S). Could have a pwr outlet behind console storage (instead of inside) to accomodate cell phones.
