So here's the deal...

2005 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
Overall, it's a great and reliable car. The pluses include a quiet ride, extreme reliability, plenty of legroom, and an excellent stereo, even if it's just the premium, not the Mark Levinson version. The biggest negative I can think of is that the transmissions in these cars are awful in lower gears. You WILL be jerked around, especially if you are rolling at low speeds and then accelerate. However, other than that, an excellent buy and a car that is hard to go wrong with.
Fairly smooth ride, quiet, extreme reliability, good stereo, well laid out cockpit for the money.
Could be a little more stylish from the exterior- not exactly a Mercedes in that dept. Transmission definitely was a problem on these cars. Won't go out, but will jerk you around a bit.
