ReviewI wanted a true luxury car that
wouldn't cost a fortune, was supremely
reliable, and would hold its value.
After 56,000 miles, I'm still truly
thrilled. My driving style is very
aggressive - hard acceleration and hard
cornering. I've had no problems
whatsoever, the car is still
wonderfully smooth and dead quiet.
Whether in rush-hour traffic or on
3,000 mile trips, I'm always pampered
and comfortable. Although a luxury
sedan, it is still FUN to drive and
well-mannered when pushed hard. I
strongly disagree with those reviewers
that claim this isn't a true luxury
Best FeaturesBeautiful genuine wood accents on console and doors; supremely comfortable seats front and rear; great sound system with 6-CD changer in glove box; more than enough smooth silent horsepower (I rated performance an 8 because an AMG E55 it's not).
Worst FeaturesFortunately the traction control on 2001 and earlier ES300s can be switched off. When on, it will NOT allow hard acceleration while turning - like if you need to go quickly at a left turn light. Unless it is switched off, DO NOT get into that sort of situation!
