Wish we had two 330s

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


We had planned to buy the Avalon, and had been researching it long before it ever reached the dealership. The same day we drove the Avalon we also drove the ES 330, and our minds were made up. The Avalon is an excellent car with a better engine, but when fit, finish, materials quality, etc. are taken into account, the decision for us was easy -- the Lexus won, hands down. In addition to the car itself, you inherit a vastly different sales and service experience. We were worried about the reported transmission issues, but we learned from the Edmunds discussion boards that using a variable driving style during the learning phase was the key to good performance. It worked for us.

Best Features

Top quality interior, quiet ride.

Worst Features

I agree with another reviewer that the standard audio system could be better.
