"I got this car with only 25,000 miles on it from a dealer and I was originally going in to look at the ES 300 but it didn't compare to this one. This one is not only more luxurious (not too much wood like the es 300 and the leather is top rate) but this one has more power and a sporty feel to it (manual shift option and down and up shift on the steering wheel). I've been very happy with everything about this vehicle. If there was a negative it would simply be that it requires "premium fuel" which I was told would be the medium grade, but they also said to try the low grade and see how it performs. They said to go with the top grade would be a waste of money as it only needs the medium. I also wish it played MP3's in the cd changer and I wish it figured out MPG's like my wife's new Honda CR-V. I also got the extended warranty up to 100,000 miles, but from what I've read, I may not even need it as these cars are maint. free except for the normal oil, transmission fluid, brakes, tires and windshield wipers.
I'm glad I went with this over the BMW 325ci, Mercedes CLK320 or C class that I was looking at."
