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


This is my first Lexus after four happy
years in a 2001 Acura CL coupe (now
discontinued)... I found the redesign
of the Acura TL to be appalling so I
looked at everything from BMW to
Mercedes to Volvo to Subaru to Saab to
Infiniti... was about to settle on a
Volvo S60 when I drove the ES330... as
soon as I closed the door I was sold...
the quality, design, finish and
drivability that was missing in almost
everything I tested was here in
spades... every move is silky and sure
and the driving experience is
wonderful, albeit more "adult" than
some of the cars in this class... other
than being slightly light on power I
would say this car is close to perfect.

Best Features

Navigation system with appealing female voice (Acura had a petulant sounding pubescent girl); cashmere leather seats; wood steering wheel and interior

Worst Features

Slightly underpowered; average standard sound system with cd changer in armrest (why not put the Nav CD in the armrest or the trunk and the cd changer in the dash?)
