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.
