Beware of this car

ReviewThe ES330 has a plush ride, is very quiet and has a nice looking interior. However, the transmission shifts very roughly. Also, many exhibit a 'hesitation' that makes the car feel like an old car with a dirty carburetor that bogs down when trying to accelerate. It does not happen to every car but tends to get worse with time if your car is one of the unlucky ones. The service people at two dealerships admitted to the problem but said there is no fix and that this has been a issue since the 2002 models. They believe it may be a computer software problem. Lexus does not admit they have a problem and offer no fix. Ultimately, I got rid of my ES330 after 4 months. Stay away from Lexus.
Best FeaturesNice interior.
Worst FeaturesFix the problem with the drive train that many ES330s have. Admit you have a problem and are working on a repair instead of burying your head in the sand and pretending all is well.
