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

Review

This is a nice looking car and very comfortable but it lacks in the mechanical arena. I have had 2 major warranty issues. Front left strut broke (told bolts left loose from factory install caused the break) and the transmission had to be replaced. Not only that but it didn't solve the problem, ECU had to be reflashed a couple months later when they got a software upgrade. Told me I was the only one having issues, found out on Edmunds lots of people have them with this year. Don't buy a used one unless the transmission and ECU have been fixed. You will have problems. Not impressed with service or how they handled the quality issues... pursuit of quality... yeah right.

Favorite Features

Heat/cool seats. Nice in the summer with the leather to have the cooling feature.

Suggested Improvements

Need to improve the overall quality of the mechanical side of the vehicle. I never expected to have this many issues with a Lexus.
