Great vehicle with untapped potential
By Unclecheeb on
2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
The new body is very nice, however it
resembles the Camry too much. Fit and
finish are suburb. Night time
instrument panel is magnificent. The
car is full of little conveniences like
the drivers dead pedal,tilt out coin
holder, compass in the rearview mirror,
auto dimming mirrors, overhead grips
for driver and passenger, and wippers
that can be pulled out of the way for
complete windshield cleaning.
Fit/finish. Improved seat cushioning.
Quiteness. Solid, protected feeling.
Abundance of safety features. When
feeling frisky, shift selection gate
allows for driving as if it were a
stick shift. Auto door locks. One touch
open/close for all windows and moon
Horsepower/torque to 260 area. More
controls on steering wheel. Better
daylight instrument view. Allow coin
holder to store gas cards, etc. More
steering resistance at speed. Drop
miles to go,etc.readout. 17" wheels.
Elec.tilt/tel & increase up position
for easier entry/exit.
