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


I've had my 2005 ES330 for 2 weeks. I
drive about 60 miles a day, mixed
highway and city. The car is
incredible: smooth as silk, QUIET
cabin, no rattles, quality inside and
out. You can see and feel the
difference between Lexus and other
Japanese brands like Acura and
Infiniti, especially the interior
materials and workmanship. Lexus is
clearly better. Before choosing the
Lexus, however, I was worried about
the transmission "hesitation" problem
mentioned in other forums. I test
drove several 2005 ES330's. None had
the transmission problem, including
the one I ended up buying. My advice:
test drive the car thoroughly and
judge for yourself.

Best Features

Voice navigation system is awesome. Rain sensing wipers. Ventilated (and heated) front seats come in handy in Houston. Spacious and elegant interior.

Worst Features

Acceleration is good, but could always be better. What would make this car perfect? How about a Lexus ES 430? I guess a V8 in this car would kill other Lexus vehicle sales.
