Problematic Owners should try this Fix and see if they don't like their car by KWilly from Fla on 12/15/2007. Trim: 2004 Lexus ES 330 Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Suprising Gas Mileage ( 30-31 highway)...acceleration for a V6....quietness....regular gas
Cons: handling is a little soft.......exhaust pipe is a single and hangs down lower than needs to be. No radio controls on steering......
Overall review: I remedied the lag in the acceleration by having the dealer perform the Service Bulletin on the transmision. You have to request it, but it is free. As the car learns how you drive , I immeadiately drove the car as I wanted it to operate( kinda hard and fast) right after the "reflashing" of the transmission software. I also added a K&N air filtration. It also helped to smooth things out. I have no hesitaion off the line anymore and only slight sort of a "turbo " like lag between 60 - 80 mph. Much like a 4 barrell carb opening up...I've read the complaints in the reviews and think that maybe they are a litle unfair as the rest of the car is really nice for the price. I had BMW and Mercedes and although both a real nice , they are high maintenance
