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

Review

A wonderful vehicle in a class by itself. Attracts attention, but the ES and Camry look too similar. Fantastic interior. Comfortable seats with a myriad of adjustments. First-class fit, finish and quality of materials, exceeds quality of others in class. Ride is plush, but not advertised as a sports sedan. Safety features abound. Excellent driver and passenger protection. Many comfort and convenience features, yet there is room to further distance the ES from the pack with the addition of convenience option features from the LS series e.g., keyless entry/ignition, storage bins, auto-adjusting steering wheel, auto door closure, etc.

Favorite Features

Fit, finish and quality of materials. Quiet cabin. Very good creature comfort and convenience features, e.g., dual climate control, heated seats, in dash CD with cassette. Excellent safety features.

Suggested Improvements

Transmission needs "response" improvement. HP/torque should be in the 250 - 275 range for a more confident feeling in uban driving situations, e.g., merging, passing, quickly getting up to speed after manuvers, etc. Can not see radio/CD readouts in sun. Offer 17 inch wheels.
