Best value for the money

2005 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Exceptionally quiet and refined ride, way above in ride quality compared to cometing vehicles. Excellent interior, with great fit and finish, and high quality materials, including genuine wood. Handles well in the snow. Nice Mark Levinson sound system (if you get the Nav package). Legendary reliability and dealership experience.
Heated seats, voice-activated navigation system, automatic HID headlights with good side range.
Would prefer if the seats were wider and softer, and had more thigh support. The interior is a little too tight, and the headroom is lacking (I am only 5'10", 150 lb). Takes time to get used to the throttle response -- I wish the engine was more responsive. Nav system should recognize more commands.
