Wonderful - with even greater potential
By unclecheeb on
2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
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.
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
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
