Great luxury car. Great value for price paid, with a much better repair record. Car drives, and handles as well or better than Mercedes E320, and BMW525.


Favorite Features

Navigation System. Ride. Smoothness of engine and transmission. Ventilated seats.

Rear seat room, need at least 2 more inches.

2005 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is only for the young at heart who wants pure affordable luxury. It performs and drives like a dream and your neighbors will envy you from the first time they see you pull it into your garage. The mileage per gallon is very accurate.


Favorite Features

6 CD in-dash changer plays like a concert hall. This car is QUIET! The leather appointments are serious and the visiability from the driver's set is the best in this class.


Suggested Improvements

The colors offered are for senior citizens. Lexus needs to understand this car appeals to young executives who want a snappy car to park in the parking garage. How about offering some practical colors for the under 50 generation!

Review

Most comfortable vehicle ever owned. Does everything but steer itself. No matter where I go, people of all ages stare at the car as tho it is some rare one-million dollar vehicle. Front seats are extremely excellent for people with back problems. Car rides so smooth, I believe you could run over a semi & not feel a single bump. Will never consider buying anything but a Lexus from now on.


Favorite Features

Pre-set driver's position. Radio/cd controls on wheel, heat/cool seats, gas mileage, quality sound system, sun roof, security features, ease of learning system, body beautiful design, no bump ride, side & front air bags, ease of cleaning, great radio range, leg room, large trunk, rear window shade.


Suggested Improvements

NONE!!!!

Review

A fantastic car. I can't say enough for it. Makes me happy just driving even in L.A. traffic. With this car you can't go wrong. I have had nothing but pleasure with the soft ride and the power when needed. The voice activated navigation is fantastic.


Favorite Features

Voice activated navigation and the soft ride.


Suggested Improvements

Bit bigger wheels, maybe 18 inches with a lower profile tire.

Review

I was looking for comfort not performance and got exactly what I was seeking. The car is exceptionally smooth and quiet. I was a bit disappointed that Bluetooth and Satelite Radio are not standard - I bet this will change in the next year or two. I wanted the nav system because I'm a gadget junkie but I really do use it and it works well. I have the ventillated seats and the heating part works well but the ventillated part doesn't have a very strong blower so it is hard to notice the impact. The transmission shifting is a fairly serious issue particularly if you do a lot of stop and go driving. For cruising on the highway this is a hard car to beat!


Favorite Features

Smooth Ride, navigation system


Suggested Improvements

Fix the transmission shifting! Add Bluetooth and satelite radio. CD changer takes up most of center console storage when you have the nav system.
