2005 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Review
I've had my 2005 ES330 for 2 weeks. I drive about 60 miles a day, mixed highway and city. The car is incredible: smooth as silk, QUIET cabin, no rattles, quality inside and out. You can see and feel the difference between Lexus and other Japanese brands like Acura and Infiniti, especially the interior materials and workmanship. Lexus is clearly better. Before choosing the Lexus, however, I was worried about the transmission "hesitation" problem mentioned in other forums. I test drove several 2005 ES330's. None had the transmission problem, including the one I ended up buying. My advice: test drive the car thoroughly and judge for yourself.
Favorite Features
Voice navigation system is awesome. Rain sensing wipers. Ventilated (and heated) front seats come in handy in Houston. Spacious and elegant interior.
Suggested Improvements
Acceleration is good, but could always be better. What would make this car perfect? How about a Lexus ES 430? I guess a V8 in this car would kill other Lexus vehicle sales.
