This first generation of the entry-level ES was also available with a five speed manual transmission. The ES was powered by the Toyota Camry's optional 2.5 liter V-6, and the two cars shared a considerable number of additional similarities. Consequently, Lexus was targeted by critics for its apparent re-badging and re-pricing of the top selling Toyota sedan.
The ES 250's 156 horsepower sent the ES from 0 to 60 in 9.2 seconds. This first ES was very light for a Lexus, at just over 3100 pounds. Due to its weight, 156 horses seemed adequate for passing and merging. Lexus did attempt to distance the ES 250 from the Camry with respect to performance. The suspension was tuned to provide a stiffer sports sedan feel, which was a pleasant addition to the smooth-shifting 5-speed manual transmission.
When any Lexus model is available with a manual transmission, most drivers highly recommend finding one. Another frequent piece of owner advice deals with maintenance: because of the high cost of Lexus service, specifically on older models, it is advised that Toyota parts will do the trick in most cases. This is especially true for the ES. Mechanics who work on Toyotas will be able to deal with most high mileage-related wear and tear problems.
