- 6 cd. changer, memory seats/leather with wood. .love everything about this car.WOW. REAL WOW CAR
- AS FAR AS I KNOW NONE. YOU SHOULD REALLY GET IT YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS CAR.
I AM 21 YEARS OLD AND I WAS ACTUALLY NOT LOOKING FOR A LUXORY CAR LIKE ES330. I WAS MORE LOOKING INTO INFINITI G35, NISSAN MAXIMA, VOLVO S60, BUT WHEN I TEST DROVE THE ES 330 IT TOOK MY BREATH AWAY. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS CAR IS AWSOME. YOU SHOULD GET ONE. FIRS OF ALL IT IS SO COMFY, SMOOTH RIDE AND IT IS QOUTE COMPARE TO G35, MAXIMA, AND S60. DEALER SERVICE WAS AWSOME AND I GOT THE BEST DEAL OUT OF ALL THOSE CARS THAT WAS LOOKING TO BUY,YOU DON'T REALLY NEED TO ADD STAFF IN THERE BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS STANTARD, LIKE 6 CD CHANGER, MEMORY SEATS, WITH LEATHER AND WOOD TRIME, MOON ROOF, I MEAN EVERYTHING DUAL ZONE A/C BUT IF YOU GO WITH G35, MAXIMA AND S60 THEN YOU ARE GOING TO END UP PAYING ABOUT 38K WICH IS NOT WORTH OF IT. I MEAN THIS CAR IS TRULY LUXORY AND BEING A FIRST TIME LEXUS OWNER I CAN PROUDLY SAY THAT MY CAR REALLY STANDS OUT IN CROUD AND ONE MORE THING THIS CAR IS NOT REALLY OLDESH LOOKING/FOR OLD PEOPLE. DO A FAVORE YOURSELFES AND GET THE CAR, YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT....I HAD IT NOW FOR 8 HOURS AND JUST AWSOME CAR. AGAIN DO YOURSELF THAT FAVOR AND STOP PAYING FOR STUPID CARS LIKE MAXIMA, G35 OR EVEN VOLVO GET A LEXUS AND YOU WILL REALLY ENJOY YOUR RIDE PLUS GIRLS ARE GOING TO RUN AFTER YOU :)...read morehide

- 30 mpg, very smooth quiet ride, trouble free, beautiful interior, joy to drive
This is an excellent car. Perfect balance between a large gas hog and a small economy car. I have put 43,000 miles on my ES 330 in 18 months without even the hint of trouble. I love the navagation system--will not own a car without one.
Exellent MPG, excellent ride, excellent service and performance....read morehide

- luxury thats all its good for
- there are too many bad things with this car.uhhh....ugly,slow,not enough torque,algment is bad
Let's just say this car is only good for is sleeping in the back seat. once this car hits 20 mph it feels like it's gonna break apart. And also the aligment is horrible.

- Great fuel economy
- A little alignment problem you can feel, but not a real problem
I purchased my 300ES in 2002 and have put 82,000 miles on it. I have had four Mercedes prior including two E320's. They can't come close to the ride or quiet interior of this vehicle. When you drive 30,000 miles a year, comfort is important. When I have taken the vehicle in for service, and I've been asked about problems? I have never once said there has ever been a problem. Try 82,000 miles without even a knob falling off. I think this is the best $30,000 vehicle on th market. I'll be buying the 2006 as soon as they come out....read morehide

- Dealer service is 10+. smooth ride, quiet cabin, comfort
- transmission, disclosure on Nav.
A great car at a reasonable price. I bought my wife a fully loaded ES 330 about a year ago and she is extremely happy with the car. Smooth ride with extremely quiet cabin certainly distinguishes ES from the competition. Aside from the size, this car is comparable to my previously owned LS 400.
On the downside, the tranny hesitates during a moderatly hard acceleration. Regarding the nav, enough with the disclosure statement everytime the car starts up! But neither seems to bother my wife so they may not bother you...
I drive a BMW 5 series and extremely happy with the acceleration, the handling, and the look but I sure miss the Lexus service. Lexus has set a new benchmark for a luxury car service. Once you experience their service, other car dealers, including and especially BMW, feels substandard......read morehide

- smooth ride, very comfortable, has great turning ability
- not very fast, made for older people
The car isnt fast has bad acceleration although it is very comfortable. The Fuel Economy not so well but the car itself is very powerful. You would only see old women driving in this. The best part is the comfort feels like your flying in a airplane.

- No trim specified for this review
- Looks good, Quiet smooth ride, Luxury interior
- Transmission is extremely sluggish!
What is Lexus going to do about the transmission in these cars (or whatever the problem is)? I bought an ES330 in April. It's such a shame because these cars really are beautiful (interior and exterior), but the transmission is awful!
I took my car back recently because of the transmission and just as the other person mentioned, the service manager explained that "this is because the computerized throttle has to take a second to "think" what gear it wants to go into." I agree. Selling a "luxury" car with a problem such as this is unacceptable and Lexus needs to step up to the plate and handle this problem immediately!
Where's the customer service you're known for! Your ES330 customers need to hear from you!...read morehide

- Fit and finish, overall quality, car is flawless
- Hesitant transmission
The transmission shifting pattern needs attention. It hesitates to shift in several modes - but I have learned to press the accelerator slowly and carefully and then it shifts smoothly. Still, the "drive by wire" system needs some fine tuning. Otherwise the car is Excellent in every regard....read morehide
