    My thoughts on the Lexus ES300

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    Have not had any real issues with the Lexus ES300, other than having to buy a power steering pump and the relay for the air-conditioning. Keep up the usual maintenance, oil change, tires when needed. Stay on top of all fluids, belts when getting worn especially the timing belt according to the manufacturer which should be changed @ 90,000 miles. This Lexus is no race car but it will take you where you need to go fast enough, and in comfort if I may add. After all it is a luxury car and the ride is smooth almost like cruising on a magic carpet. Never had any real problems with this car, I enjoy driving it. The comfort, reliability and performance are good enough for me. All the power amenities, cruise control, AC multi set up readings abilities on the dashboard gauges for trips compass built into the mirror, sunroof. There's are many standard options and others that could be had. The car is great and not that much to maintain. I would definitely recommend getting one.

    It's Good First Car, Nice Comfort

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    I got this car after I graduated high school in 2016. I was the third owner of the vehicle. I've always haven't had to drive very far for work or school. I've only put 25,000 miles on it in the past three years. There is now a little over 164,000 miles on it total. There were a couple of things that I had to take it to the shop for. The first was the Bank 1 catalytic converter which cost about $1,300 to fix. Only a few months ago it started misfiring and stalling took it to the same repairman and he originally thought it was the Bank 2 catalytic converter but it turned out to be something else that was a $1,100 fix. The exhaust pipe has been hanging a little low but if you look at most Toyotas it does that after a while. All in all it's an okay little car and a good first vehicle. Nice space on the inside and a huge trunk.

    Wonderful car that is really up-to-date for its age.

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    We purchased the car used about four months ago. So far, we love this vehicle. For the age of the car, it is loaded with so many newer features, touch screen navigation, airbags everywhere, power sliding sunshade, but still has features that most cars today do not have. The cassette player is awesome! Never thought I would see one again in a car. The car gets above average gas mileage. Ride quality is great, very little road noise, smooth, doors shut easily and snug. The motor runs great, it just lacks the power I think it should have. The steering wheel makes a weird noise when it is turned, which is sometimes annoying. Wish it had keyless start.

    Reliability in a luxury vehicle.

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    This car is the height of luxury and comfort, even though it is an older model. I have owned it for 5 years and have had no (0) mechanical problems. It drives like a new vehicle. Handles well on the road, smooth riding. Gets excellent mileage. I love the built in GPS system. It has a 6 CD player and a tape player. Back seat passengers rave about the comfort. This vehicle drives and rides like a new one. Easy adjustable, comfortable seats. Mirrors are easy to adjust. Excellent air conditioning. When I trade it will be for another Lexus.

    Great car, great comfort !

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    This is really the best car I have ever owned! I have put over 190000 miles on it and it is still running strong. Besides accidents it has only been in the shop for service twice ( not counting standard maintenance). I have driven this car from Chicago to Washington D.C. several times and it made the trip there and back without a hitch. The interior keep you comfortable enough to make those long trips without fatigue. Great creature comforts and great dependability. How can you go wrong.

    A decent first car that requires some maintenance

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    This car runs smoothly on the road and is very comfortable and easy to drive. The gas mileage is not great and often goes empty really fast after reaching half-full. The battery usage is not great and I have had to have my car jump-started multiple times, as well as replacing and recharging the battery a couple of times, and I have only had this car for a year and a half. However, this car has been a good first car to get me through high school and the beginning of college

    Cruising downtown with the ac on.

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    The car drives great. Living in a hot climate, ac is very important and that is probably my favorite feature of the car. In the winter, I wish it had a seat heater, but the heat works well. I also wish there was a rear windshield wiper, rather than just the heated glass (but it is effective after a bit, if you do not mind waiting). It drives and handles well, but the brakes are extremely sensitive (which I view as a plus, but often throws people off who borrow the car).

    Lexus: Luxury no matter the year

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    My vehicle might be an older one but it is very reliable. 17 years ago it was considered a luxury vehicle and today it still runs like one. My Lexus does have a few scratches here and there from usage but overall it drives smoothly and efficiently. I have had the occasional flat tire, though that is not the car's fault. I've also had a brake light out but the only issue I could see being an issue later on down the road is the occasional harsh gear shifting.

    Lexus es model - older model, runs like new!

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    No current problems. Very reliable, easy to handle. Contains all the features that a newer model has - seat warmers, fast heating or cooling, quick defrost. The car runs very smoothly through any weather and has been very reliable after driving it for so many years. With consistent maintenance, the car has driven for many miles and is still a really great car.

    Driving a older model Lexus

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    My car is very reliable and not bad on gas for a 6 cyl no major problems just regular wear and tear ! I love driving it on long trips ! Very comfortable because of the different position you can adjust the seat to your comfort ! I would like to upgrade to another one when ever my finances are able to

    - Timothy D

    2002 still rides smoothly.

    2002 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

    No real problems other than regular maintenance. It's reliable. The ride is still smooth. My issue is price gouging of shops for repairs. I get regular oil changes so that is crucial for maintaining performance. I get great gas mileage, the only flaw is recommended 93 grade at the pump.
