2004 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Car is beautiful inside and out. However, at 10,000 miles it started smelling like rotten eggs. Lexus says just a product of gas in Oregon; however, not all ES 330's smell which is a mystery, says the dealership. Lexus customer service just says, tough luck. Very frustrated. Dealership hands are tied by Lexus who says they cannot change any parts to try to correct problem if vehicle is running to specs.

2004 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We bought the ES a little over a year ago and traded it over a week ago for a sportier car. The ES is an excellent sedan built for comfort and rolling isolation. I just had a change of taste for something sportier and more fun to drive.


Best Features

Excellent safety/crash test results, handsomely crafted interior, tomb-quiet (if you like that).


Worst Features

Continues to share basic platform with Toyota Camry, shares 3.3 liter engine with Camry SE, 17 inch wheels should have been standard since 2002 model year, very weak audio system in non- levinson package, Front fascia/grille too similar to Camry.

2004 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My Lexus is a joy to drive. The seats and driving position are extremely comfortable on long drives. Fuel economy avg of 23 mpg in mixed driving. Haven't experienced any of the complaints expressed by some on this website. Transmission works well. No pulling. Great Michelin tires (the no cost all season option). You get the most car for the money.


Best Features

Ride comfort, styling, fuel economy


Worst Features

Needs audio controls on steering wheels

Review

I love this car. It is fun, beautiful, all the luxury you would expect from a lexus. Super smooth. You cant even feel the road. You cant hear the engine, and a very quiet ride. Its a very comfortable ride, plenty of space, front and back. Big trunk. I would recommend this car to anyone.


Best Features

Its beauty. A smooth and sleek design.


Worst Features

A little better on gas. Being stingy though.

Review

Everything is well thought out. No problems with most features. Would have preferred audio and climate controls on steering wheel(Noticed that they have done this on the 2005 model). Navigation system has some minor glitches, but over all performs in an adequate manner. Changed tires from Summer to "All Weather. Didn't feel comfortable going on a long trip with seasonal tires. Overall this car rates as god or beter than the three Cadillacs that I have owned previously


Best Features

Comfortable seats, excellent visibility,outstanding Levenson audio system.


Worst Features
