2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


You have to understand the Lexus ES300 is the first non-American car I've ever purchased, so I may not be the best judge. Nonetheless, it is clearly the best car I have ever owned. I traded in a Buick I thought I loved and have never regretted it. I also test drove a Mercedes, a BMW, an Acura, a Cadillac CS and a Lincoln LS. In the end I still bought the Lexus. The ONLY thing I can say that the others had over the Lexus is exterior design. The Mercedes and BMW are "classier' looking and the Cadillac is just more interesting looking.

Best Features

Interior design, comfort, highway handling, the sound sytem, the reliability and how my friends react to it. Overall, just the obvious quality.

Worst Features

I think the exterior design could use some work. You instantly recognize a Mercedes or a BMW and they say "class." The Lexus design doesn't look that different from its Toyota cousins
