This is my first 6 cylinder car ever and what a ride. I took the 05 Avalon Limited for a test drive and although the engine may be more powerful the refinement and luxury of the ES is umatched. From the simplicity of the controls to the real wood throught the cabin. The comfort is unmatched. Owning a Lexus is great. I've had people comment me on how great the car rides and this is from owners of s500 and the GS300 as well, so that says a lot.
Simple controls, wood steering wheel, healted and cooling seats, automatic wipers, the quiet cabin.
A little more stylish exterior and better acceleration from a stopped position without the jerkiness of getting out of 1st.
