"Very smooth drive, I Love everything about this car! Although ONE complaint and only one..... my headlights have a yellow tint inside the plastic saw another car (same year and type) had the same thing. But the car overall is great!!!"
"I bought this car in August of 2008 when I came back from my first deployment. I was going to buy a 2006 Lexus, but the salesman helped me compare the 2002 Lexus and 2006 Lexus ES sedan models which both had the SAME features except one was newer. I am SO glad I bought this car. It has been very good to me. I have taken this car cross country around 8 times and never had a problem. I also drive a lot on the weekends and it has held up well.The only thing that has happened was that the electrical gas pedal went out and I had no warranty on my car which cost me about $500. Recently it needed a throttle clean because the car would start, but then turn back off if I didn't keep pushing down on the gas pedal. I like the features it holds because for it has leather seats that warm up, the moon roof, and nice cherry wood interior. I hope this car lasts me for another couple of years!"
"Comfortable, quiet, reliable, smooth and looks great after 10 years and over 100,000 miles. I plan to drive it for another 100,000. Service is pricy but that is probably true for all dealerships but I love the worry free reliability."
Cons: "Moon Roof: had to play w/switch to close right"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"My ES 300 has been in my (extended) family since new. It is an exceptionally comfortable car for long distance driving. Very quiet and tight even after 13 yrs and 90k+ miles. Mainly just routine maintenance over the years, also once had starter/alt. problem, and had to replace an A/C relay.
Approx 8 mos ago one of the rear power windows quit working but since no one rides in the back we let it go. Then approx. 3-4 mos. ago the other rear window quit. Took it to the dealer who informed us that both window motors are dead and that repairs could run $1250-1400 'Per Door'!!!"
