    2003 Lexus ES 300 - Base

    Pros: DVD Navigation

    Cons: Seats

    Advice: Get the DVD Nav

    I love this car! The front seats are comfortable but no auto manufacture compares to the ergonomic seats found in the higher priced Volvo models. Get the navigation... once you have it you cannot go back. I have received more complements and head turns on the color of mine more than anything else - Black Garnet Pearl with black leather interior... HOT!

    2003 Lexus ES 300 - Base

    Pros: Quiet ride, Navigation and sound system

    Cons: Trunk

    Advice: Test drive it and your hooked

    Very comfortable quiet ride. Interior is luxurious. Navigation System works great. Mark Levinson sound systems belts out the sounds. Trunk and trunk opening could be bigger, hard to squeeze large items into the trunk because of the opening and the Navigation box located in the trunk. Otherwise its a great automobile.

    2002 Lexus ES 300 - Base

    Pros: Interior

    Cons: Acceleration

    Advice: Go for it!

    High level of luxury at this price point. Not as responsive as comparable BMW or Mercedes, but very relaxing to drive. At this point I want to be isolated from the (not so perfect) road.

    2002 Lexus ES 300 - Base

    Pros: ride and interior comfort

    Cons: significant interior noise when operating brake pedal

    Advice: After you own one, it's hard to accept a lesser car

    Handled well; lots of comfort; seemed a little underpowered; absolutely quiet ride; cup holders in front could be improved; cornered nicely; good road handling at high speed; appeared to have a passenger side rear blind spot.

    2002 Lexus ES 300 - Base

    Pros: Navigation system

    Cons: smaller back seat than the LS430, but what can ya do?

    Advice: Take a top of the line Toyota Camry on a test drive first. Once you do, you'll be able to laugh when people tell you the ES300 is just a nice Camry, when there isr eally no comparison at all.

    Extremely quiet and smooth running. In fact, it's hard to tell if the engine is on. When the vehicle is brand new it takes off with a little roughness, but that goes away by 1000 miles. The greatest car I have ever owned...

    2002 Lexus ES 300 - Base

    Pros: the cherry wood interior trim

    Cons: the standard 16 inch tires

    Advice: add the size tires and rims you want before you buy the vehicle

    This car really liked me behind the wheele. It was a smoth ride from the moment I sat behind the wheele and an even smoother ride for my passengers. The ride is tight and clean.

    2002 Lexus ES 300 - Base

    Pros: The well-designed

    Cons: The acceleration.

    Advice: Buy this car with the features you want. Do not purchase options that you do not feel are important.

    Great ride. Incredibly quiet. Handling is responsive, but acceleration and power should be greater for a car in this class.
