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


Just bought with 44,500 miles. It replaces our LS 400 which we drove for 15 years until it was sideswiped. This is a beautifully balanced car in all regards: comfortable, reliable, economical, and loaded with lux features. Unlike some other raters, this transmission is very smooth.. no issues at all (and I was looking for them). We are delighted, and look forward to another 15 year run in this Lexus. The ES is not as cushy as our LS, but it is close, and about 25% more economical on fuel.

Best Features

Ride, navigation, seat comfort and styling, shift gate design, HID headlamps, auto climate control with dual controls, fit & finish inside and out, quiet, well balanced steering feedback, and it's not too flashy... it has a sort of finesse about it. A great, great, car.

Worst Features

Front cup holders are too low to grab tall containers (such as water bottles and my thermal coffee cup).
