Poor decision

2004 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


I've purchased lower end Japanese built sedans in the past. I thought this was an upgrade. I couldn't have been more wrong. The transmission hesitates and it is normal I was told. Possibly because of this it has fair acceleration off the line. It has the most uncomfortable driver's seat I've ever sat on. It's very hard. I have not experienced near the same discomfort with other cars I've driven including rental cars from low small to large ones. This purchase has taught me a lesson, that a higher end brand does not come close to guarantee driving enjoyment. It has been the exact opposite.

Best Features

Very nice looking inside and out.

Worst Features

Improve seat comfort, transmission and rear visibility. Make rearview mirrors larger.
