The Camry is just as nice
By dienberg on


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


The leather, wood, and soft materials
are gorgeous. I especially like the
alluminum skuff plates and the
intricate interior lighting at night.
The exterior fit and finish is
perfect, unlike my mother's 2002
Camry. Both cars, however, have had
their fair share of rattles and
squeaks. I'll admit that there are
definitely transmission shudders, but
my 99 Solara exhibited the same
characteristics. Whatever reviewer
claims the noise levels are too high
is nuts. If you don't need the extra
warranty, the FANCY interior, or the
extra soundproofing, save and get a LE
V6 Camry. Overall, a solid best buy
in the class.

Best Features

Quietness, Beautiful interior design and finish, Best paint job in the industry (Don't need to pay $300-$800 more like the German's make you do for metallic), Standard Pioneer stereo is fantastic.

Worst Features

Fix the squeaks and rattles (especially the Moonroof), they are inexcusable in this price range. My 99 Solara did not have one squeak or rattle in over 48,000 miles of driving. More contrast on the stereo screen.
