It lives up to its reputation as one of the best older vehicles on the road today.

We got our 2000 ES300 from a relative who had bought it for his mother in law. We got the car in 2007 with roughly 10,000 miles on it. She didn't use it much as she was retired living at home. The car now has just under 100,000 miles on it and is performing very well overall. Outside of some electrical bugs that are largely superficial false alarms, we plan to keep using it for some time. We had a professional evaluate the vehicle and despite its age, they recommended that it was worth investing in maintenance given the reputation and condition of this make and model. We hope to keep using it for many years to come.

Lexus es 300 the best car I've ever had.

It's a very dependable car. I've driven it twice to Florida without any problems. If you keep up the maintenance on the car it'll run like it fairly new. The seats are very comfortable and stylish. With both front seats warmers. Overall it's the best car that I've ever had.

I never had any problems with it since 2009.

I love the amount of room it has, the way it drives, the sunroof, and it gets pretty good gas mileage for a mid size sedan. I did have to replace the transmission, ignition coils, and a few other things, but it does have 248,000 miles on it, so that is to be expected!.

My 2000 Lexus es 300 review.

I haven't had any problems or I'd the car. It is very reliable and performs great as well. Very comfortable and fun to drive. It an older car so the features are not very advanced, but it does have heated seats, power windows and locks. All work great.

- Zachary G

My car is okay, but I could get a better one.

There are not really any problems with the car, but sometimes it stops very suddenly in the middle of the road. I went to a car automotive service, but it still didn't work. I think you should probably get an electric car for more efficiency.

- Bobby J

On the gear shift, there's a button that says o/d. If you press the button it makes the car go a lot faster

When I brought the car it was really nice, It has heated seats and the radio system is really nice. The only problems I have had with the car is breaks, for some reason the brakes don't last very long for this car

- Daevon J

You cannot break into it, not even through the window.

I have a Lexus 2000 as. I love that it drives smooth and has good space. I also love that it has a good size trunk space. I do not like that it does not have tinted windows and I do not like the leather seats.

It is so incredibly reliable! If you don't crash and total the car, it will last forever! 220000+ miles and still running great.

My car is 18 years old, has 220000+ miles and is still in fantastic condition! It runs great and has had very little work done. Super reliable. It also has some nice features like sunroof and heated seats.

- Olivia H

It's an enjoyable ride with a great sound system

I enjoy the smooth ride and the speaker system is really great. I don't really care for the look of the car. The turning radius feels too large, and the audio adjustment with CD playback can be annoying.

- Steve d

- Samantha R

It is well built and will last for years if you do the regular maintenance.

It is comfortable, well engineered and requires very little maintenance. I bought it new and plan to keep it for another 10 years or more. I don't dislike anything about the car.

- Caroline C

It is a sturdy car and there are about 285,000 miles on it and should have some more miles I can go.

I like the comfort of the ride and it is a dependable vehicle. I do not like the leather seats especially in this Arizona sun. The size of the car makes it easy to maneuver.

- Lynn M

My older model Lexus! Which I love!

I really like my car. It drives and rides really smooth. It is an older model so I have had to do some repairs to it, which is to be expected with it being an older car.

- Allison H

Had it for years! keep it well tuned and clean and you can enjoy it for a long time

Love my Lexus. Love the smooth ride and comfortable interior. The seats adjust nicely, plenty of legroom for passengers and plenty of trunk space for shopping trips!

Lexus ES300 Year 2000 Color White

The car has a lot of check engine light problems, but it does have close to 200,000 miles on it. The car feels heavy when you handle it.

I love my car because it is easy to drive and it is very smooth. It gets me to and from point a and b. It is a brand that I trust.

Old Lexus probably on its last legs

Bad Brakes and cam sensor. Everything else is adequate. Lots of miles but these cars can last with proper maintenance.

- Chad P

It will last a long time if the regular maintenance is done as scheduled.

No complaints after 19 years. Comfortable and spacious interior. Low maintenance costs. Still rides well.

- Caroline p D

Great car, when it wants to be.

Sometimes when I turn it on the rpms don't move. It helps if you hold it all the way over when starting.

- Amanda F

That it's old and that it does kill a five year battery in two years. However, it does still run well besides that

I like that's it's small and drivable. I do not like that it kills the battery faster than average

- Carly G
