Nice car but..
By Ole John on


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


Well it has a nice ride & is quiet.
Nice features. It is a little under
powered, but I expected that. Many have
complained about instability of the
transmission - but it is my
understanding that the ES300 has fly-by-
wire control, & have
experienced "shuttering" to different
degrees - from the feeling that your on
a bumpy road, to a low frequeny shutter
after coming down a hill & getting
ready to go up another. This is a
classic unstable servo system -
something that the engineers should
have solved long ago. BTW, the
transmission isn't all that great
either. Should be a lot better for a
35k car made by Toyota.

Best Features

Nice ride, quiet, nice interior.

Worst Features

Solve the engine servo control problem & get a better transmission
