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

Review

This car has the mushiest transmission shift I have ever experienced. The car lags annoyingly when attempting to accelerate for passing at highway speeds, and never seems to select the appropriate gear for optimum performance. The fit, finish and luxury of the car are beyond reproach. Unfortunately, driving pleasure is marred by the transmission characteristics for which Lexus has no cure. I've had two Mercedes sedans recently and the ES300 just doesn't measure up to the performance standards set by the Benz's.

Best Features

Heated seats, wood/leather steering wheel, multi-disc in dash CD player, the quiet interior and supportive seats.

Worst Features

Driveability....acceleration and transmission shifting. More highly styled wheels would help the rather bland exterior.
