I bought this car after my 1994 ES300 transmission quit going into overdrive & couldn't be fixed. But I had nearly 175K miles on that one so couldn't really complain much about that. I have not had any of the problems with the 2003 transmission that others have written about in their reviews. I did look at some other cars before getting this one - none of them compared to a Lexus. Guess the 94 spoiled me for any other car (that I can afford, lol).
Extremely comfortable ride, great sound system, easy to read & use controls, lots of storage & huge trunk.
I do miss the little sun visor over the rear view mirror that my 94 had, lol. Not sure why they deleted that small but VERY useful feature.
