This is my second Lexus ES. The car had decent acceleration but i found it lacking when merging into an expressway. Comfortable and quality.I bought a 2003 ES300 with 33,000 on it in 2008. I drove it for 30,000 with no mayor issues. The car was like new even though it was 5 years old when I bought it. The worse problem was that a mechanic at Lexus of North Miami sabotaged the AC system. Got angry when I complained he had not changed the AC cabin air filter after servicing the AC, which included the filter. A different dealer confirmed the AC had been purposely tinkered with and gave an estimate for $900. Took it back to Lexus of North Miami and service manager had it repaired for free. Car
Style, interior, leather upholstery. Sound system, plush feeling and very, very luxurious ride. It is not a car for the muscle car, road hogging crowd. But it went fast on the open highway and was extremely easy on your body on long rides. Predictable, reliable, delivered a full body experience with a smile. The perfect wife.
Not the other woman. Lacked punch. Not the car for heart pounding passion. I would not have been happy with this car 20 years ago. The transmission issue was a minor glitch and after a while I got used to its quicks.
This car is a very nice car. It is very smooth, reliable, I am 6 foot 3 I have found enough room to drive the car. It is comfortable. It looks nice. It is good on gas. No vibration. Black Diamond Edition makes it even better. Stereo is nice. I care about keeping my money in my pocket. I like to keep extra extra money in the bank. :) Repairs aren't an issue because it seems that it will not break. Maintaining the car is affordable also if you take it to a great mechanic who treats your car well. Mercedes Bmw and every other expensive car on the road has to pay for expensive repairs and to also maintain it. People who drive those cars normally have their eyes fixed on mine. Get one. Save$
Smooth, nice stereo, nice navigation, reliable, rear sun shade is nice also
more room in back seat, more torque, push button start
Have owned this car since it was new and have over 60000 miles on it. It still handles and drives like a new car. Only problem encountered was a caution lite re: front seat came on and Lexus replaced the whole front seat. Not one other rattle, part problem or issue. Simply the best car we have ever owned.
Quite, smooth ride, great interior
Find a way to increase fuel mileage although 24-25 mpg is not too shabby.
