Steering is too sensitive, although it turns extremely well. Does not handle well in high wind. After owning the Chrysler 300C, the Lexus ES330 was a disappointment. Gets pretty good gas mileage, but you have to use premium fuel (Edmunds reports regular fuel -- not true, and the dealer didn't tell us about the fuel until we were ready to leave with the car! (Lesson learned: Buyer Beware!) Navigation system is too complicated and inaccurate, which doesn't help when you're in the middle of heavy, high-speed traffic and need it the most! Sound system could be improved with better quality speakers or more of them.
Open all windows & sunroof with touch of key before opening the car doors (great in Southwest summers). Good visibility, no blindspots. Adjustable pedals. Love the hands-free command feature.
Telescopic steering wheel; seat that moves back when key turns off; button instead of skinny knob for seat heat/cool; place to put your cell phone! Rear warning signal in reverse; Sound system is weak for size of interior. Needs lighting for rear passengers. Seats could be a little more plush.
