My test of the Lexus ES300

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

Review

Basically 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!

Favorite Features

The GPS Navigation system is great.

Suggested Improvements

Fix this glich in the transmission. My '94 Lexus transmission was much better than this '03.
