"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'!!!"

"No breakdowns ever until 175k miles. At 175k the alternator and starter needed to be replaced, other than that only factory scheduled maintenance. Still going strong at nearly 200k."
