I rattle and hesitate; I am your car !
By Bruce Litzkow on

Vehicle

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

Review

The problems Lexus will not address: (1) Audible rattling sound outside the vehicle during low speed acceleration (2) Transmission hesitation below 40 and revs past red line when floored at 40 (3) Bridgestone factory tires dangerous loss of control on wet pavement at 50+

Favorite Features

Ability to lower all windows and open sunroof with remote. With all windows and sunroof closed, very quiet and smooth ride.

Suggested Improvements

Fix exterior rattling sound, fix transmission hesitation and engine racing, replace factory tires with tires that have better traction in wet weather, add backlighting to headliner mounted map light on/off buttons and the programmable Homelink wireless remote buttons.
