Thats bullcrap I have a 2004 Lexus es330 andits like the same as a 2005 but the trasmission is smooth as silk


I have a 2002 es300, and had a problem with the transmission, the weirdest part is after the local lexus dealer gave up on it, it fixed by itself!!! Anyway, if i were you i buy the 2005 es330.


i have a 2000 gs300 and it runs amazing. since my dads an auto broker ive seen the records on the car. previous owner never needed to have any repairs on transmission. i have it now. 69k miles and runs like its new. never had to get the transmission checked. *knock on wood* lol
