2013 Lexus ES 300h 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Excellent car, i upgraded from BMW. My wife has to ride with our baby in the back, and the leg space is really incredible i trade with her some times too and love it but roof could be a bit higher for long torso man that i am. we also had an 08 Xterra SUV and ES has way more leg space in the back! MPG 32 city
(we live in a up and down area) combined is 35.5 and on a freeway close to 40 that is with all 5 seats occupied and trunk full of Costco goods, 15 gal fuel (91 premium).

Best Features

I love space, MPG, electronics, the sport mode makes it feel like there was no power trade off at all. 4th thing for suggestions cause i ran out of space there- radio buttons too far. they should be next to the little mouse. the steering wheel only switches preset channels. and with the XM radio, you want to scroll around some times with out having to reach towards the dash. 5th add more LEDs like in the trunk and around the car, its simple and makes it more family friendly/trendy.

Worst Features

1 the back up camera displays the message about your phone being connected or not and with that it blocks part of the very useful upper screen when backing out of the drive way. 2 after turning the car on and shifting the drive stick in to d/r position, you have to go back to P cause it was not ready to go just yet -makes a bad getaway ride. 3 taking corners is hard habit to brake after driving BMW. need low profile tires and the sway bar upgraded to keep all 4 on the road. i have one turn entering uphill freeway as it curves, and i always make a squeal and a burnout cause it looses traction as i'm trying to get away from catching up traffic. never on BMW even left right swing mushy...
