ReviewBasically I'm very pleased with this car. The only thing that bother me is the new 5 speed transmission. Here's a brief example of what I mean: If I drive about 35mph and then slow down to about 5mph and than try to accelerate there is a hesitation. It's as if the transmission can not decide on what gear to go into. When it finally does there's a slight lurch forward. One other thing is a rattle that happened in the right rear. The dealer had to remove the rear door panels and do something to the insulation to correct it. There was a service bulletin about this problem. I didn't expect that on a brand new Lexus!
Best FeaturesThe GPS Navigation system is great.
Worst FeaturesFix this glich in the transmission. My '94 Lexus transmission was much better than this '03.
