First Lexus still remembering my Benz
By First Lexus on


2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


First Lexus. I looked at all of the
and Volvo.After owning a Benz my 1st
thought was to get another one. After
reading some reviews on Edmunds, I
decided against it. As for the Lexus,
good car but a little dull. I love the
interior and the navigation and the
overall space. I still havent gotten
used to the exterior styling, the
headlights in particular. I have had
squeaks, rattles and a thumping sound
in the trunk during initial
acceleration. Turns out
the dealer has been getting this
complaint. Problem is when the gas tank
is full, the fuel swishes and makes a
pounding sound. Reliable, but vanilla.

Best Features

Interior styling, guaranteed reliability, GPS is really super, room and dealer experience. Good value for the money.

Worst Features

Exterior styling more like the LS 430, twin tail pipes, thicker leather (seems to already show inordinate wear), fix the squeaks and rattles, more power and less exhaust sound, smoother transmission.
