Great car but beware...
By Becky K. on


2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


This is our second Lexus. Love the
exterior design and interior design as
well. Really sharp car. Has all the
bells and whistles anyone could need.
Somewhat sluggish though on pickup.
There is definitely a computer problem
with the transmission. Seems to have
trouble - at times - deciding what gear
it needs to be in. Lexus is aware of
problem with the 2002 ES300, but has
not been able to come up with a
solution as yet.

Best Features

Exterior design and interior design except for the clock which is difficult to read unless you look at it close up. Wood accents in the interior looks awesome. Ease of use for the in-dash 6 disc CD player. Really an all around great car.

Worst Features

Clock too recessed to read easily. Fix transmission computer problem. Lexus C.S. in CA - is no problem, that's the car's design. The car hesitates shifting. Car dealership concedes that there is a problem and are waiting for solution for the problem that exists fom Lexus.
