Great Luxury and Reliablility for the Price by Jim in Chicago Suburbs on 02/04/2009. Trim: 2005 Lexus ES 330 Sedan, Owned 4 years.
Pros: The body style is sleek yet conservative. Interior is comfortable but could use a little more rear seat room. Controls are nicely laid out and easy to reach. It looks like high quality and it is. Lots of nice features are standard. The car has decent power and acceleration but is not a speed burner by any means. Fuel economy is ok at 24 mpg average. I get 18 city and 30 highway with mid-grade. The traction and stability control works great in the harsh Chicago winters. No skidding or sliding even in heavy snow.
Cons: Tires and brakes seemed to wear a little faster than expected but other than that I have no complaints. Service at my Lexus dealer is great but it's not cheap. In all honesty, I didn't expect it to be. Most things, though, are not too bad and the car comes back on time and immaculate. Best service I've had from a dealer.
Overall review: From my experiences, I would recommend this car. It's been very reliable and has been impeccably maintained. People have complained about the tranny but I had a software update done and it's been fine. I think some people just look for things to complain about. If the car is properly maintained it will perform well for many years. There is a reason Lexus has topped the JD Powers list for reliability for 14 years in a row.

ES or LS?? Maryann or Ginger?? Keep your $20,000 by Luckie in AL on 09/21/2004. Trim: 2005 Lexus ES 330 Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I love the ride. It's quite and very smooth.
Cons: The only thing I regret is that my ride to work is not longer.
Overall review: My boss has a LS430 that I ride in alot. This car is everybit as nice as the LS for $20,000 less. The 2005 ES has programmable passenger seats. My bosses 2004 LS does not. I think he's jealous! I definitely got the better deal.

Cons: nothing, the style was freshened and the performance was tweaked so now, it's pretty much perfect.
Overall review: LOVE IT, BUY IT
