"I don't know what to say but i have had unbelievable 14 years and counting experience, could not find a single reason to trade-in or sell my 99 ES 300 lexus beauty! With 13k average milege per year (some years drove > 20k, some less < 10k) high ways, local roads etc., This car is the BEST INVESTMENT i ever made... I take the car to Arlington Lexus in palatine once every 6 months for routine maintenance, that's all! This car just drives..."

Pros: "enduring and endearing still beautiful"

Cons: "badly designed cup holders"

"The car has lived in very sunny areas - Arizona, Hawaii and now Florida and paint bubbled up enough to require a new paint job and leather on front seats and console is cracked and worn, but other than that the only real deficiency is of a badly designed cup holder. I still love this car and wouldn't consider giving it up. For a car as old as she is, she still gets pretty good mileage. Her turning radius is remarkable and still has plenty of zip on the highway. We having driven together from San Diego to Florida without event when she was a young 14 year old with only 150000 miles on her. She was in 2 car accidents being rear ended where the cars at fault were maximally damaged, and she has little tiny dents in her bumper. I hope I age as well as she is."

"I have had this car almost 14 years with no surprises. All repairs have been routine maintenance/ normal wear things. Of course it doesn't run quite as smooth as it did new (I no longer have to wonder if it is actually running when I am at idle), but it still runs better than many new cars. My only complaint is that at about 5 years the paint on the side mirrors started flaking off, but that is the only exterior problem. Love this car!"
