Thanks for your analysis... All the es350 I have seen are way above the 3m.. And I'm talking about 2007/2008..i think the Gs maybe a bit on the higher side for maintenance since its not regularly seen here.. And 2ndly it's not as roomy as the es330..i will just stick to the es330.. r

The 2005 C240 has a reliable powertrain but is grossly underpowered. One of the most impressive V6's I've ever seen, and will honestly leave you disappointed. The ES330 has a 3.3L doing about 225 HP and 240lbs of torque. It's a more powerful car than the Benz.

The C240 is RWD while the ES is FWD. Handling of the C240 is much better than on the ES.

Maintenance and reliability is all for the ES. Part prices are about on par with Benz, but the ES will be way more reliable than the C.

Luxury is also for the ES. The interior is quite simply a better place to be in. Go have a sit in both cars, you'll understand. Interior build will also hold up much better than with the C Class–in my opinion all W203 interiors start to fall apart at high mileage and when they do, it's not pretty.

Mehn, buy the ES. It's a better car, pretty much.

Another cars you may want to look into is the ES350. I'm pretty sure you can get a 2007/2008 model with 3M these days if you search hard enough. Maybe a 2006 GS300? 2007/2008 Acura TL. 2007/2008 Infiniti G35. 2007 Mercedes E350. These are all better cars than the C240 and ES330.

Considering your criteria, I'd go for an ES350.

Feel free to ask any other questions about the C240 and ES330. I have extensive hands-on knowledge on one, and currently own the other.

Venza is a Camry wagon.
Crosstour is an Accord wagon.

The RX is way more car than the other two. There's really nothing the other two are better at. You're getting more luxury, more technology, more reliability, and all around more value for your money with the RX350.
Hmmm. Thanks

Nigerian used for 2.35m. Not a bad deal at all.

Nigerian used for 2.9. Clean.

https://www.nairaland.com/4679392/grade-standard-reg-2007-lexus#70325553
Also for 2.9. Clean.


Go for one of these. The ES330 already looks dated. The ES350 is a far more powerful car, looks much better, handles better, and has more luxury. It's a car you can probably drive for 2-3 years before getting tired of.

Also, the G35 is bigger than the C240. Not sure what you're talking about. Look at the TL, too. It's cheap and ridiculously reliable.

ClixMaster:
Hmmm. Thanks

You're welcome.

Ok but let him know that the MPV has only four AC vents compared to the sienna.... although the MPV has rear windows that can be rolled down..

While you are at it let him also know that their fuel economy difference is negligible or nonexistent

MPV ES and LS trim has 4 vent in front and 4at the back.
Only the DX trim has only 4 vent in the front.

Ehh

C Class is compact sedan
E Class is mid-size
S Class is full size


Size, power, luxury are in that order, too. Maintenance costs and fuel economy are inverted.

I posted this warning elsewhere but here it is again.

Okay, I've had enough of this. There will be causalities along the way but if you don't stop spamming threads dru23, I'm going to pull a Walmart on you and kill your oil business. And I can. I can sell at prices you can never touch if I choose to. If you don't stop, I will sell each and every oil you list for half the price until you sell no more. And I can keep it up for years. This has gone on long enough.
