This vehicle is a pleasure to drive. The AWD is flawless, the car has plenty of power (for me), the ride is very smooth and quiet. I preferred this car's ride to the ES 300 sedan which I found floated to much. This car is an all around treat to drive. Good viewing all around from driver's seat.
AWD, comfort, Pretty much has everything I want.
Turning circle a bit wide, side curtain airbags (which the 2003 ES 300 has? go figure), dual AC (also the ES 300 has).
