Not Perfect, but Close

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


I was looking for comfort not performance and got exactly what I was seeking. The car is exceptionally smooth and quiet. I was a bit disappointed that Bluetooth and Satelite Radio are not standard - I bet this will change in the next year or two. I wanted the nav system because I'm a gadget junkie but I really do use it and it works well. I have the ventillated seats and the heating part works well but the ventillated part doesn't have a very strong blower so it is hard to notice the impact. The transmission shifting is a fairly serious issue particularly if you do a lot of stop and go driving. For cruising on the highway this is a hard car to beat!

Best Features

Smooth Ride, navigation system

Worst Features

Fix the transmission shifting! Add Bluetooth and satelite radio. CD changer takes up most of center console storage when you have the nav system.
