bad transmission
By X-Redhead on


2005 Lexus ES 330 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Poorly shifting transission. It can not find next gear easily. Almost like the transmission is slipping and then takes hold and my head snaps back. Service manager says "you will get used to it". Huh?? For $37,000!! Tires, according to info that came with the car "may not last 20,000 miles". Bridgestone Turanza. Instruments hard to read in the daytime. Next time I will buy the Acura. Can't wait for the 2006 model Acura. This is the third Lexus I have owned and the first time I have been disappointed with my purchase. Also own a 2003 Mercury GM LS and at this point like it better.

Best Features

Soft ride. Leather.

Worst Features

Improve body style. Too much like the Avalon only smaller. Gas mileage improvement needed.
