You can never go wrong with choosing Lexus.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

The reliability of my Lexus is amazing. Although it is old, it looks beautiful and the black paint does not chip or ever lose its gloss. The leather seats are chic and comfortable even though they get hot in the summer, it is beautiful. You can switch from sports mode which is a little bumpy to comfort mode where it is smooth sailing. Although if you are looking for a sportier, yet more in control ride I'd go with sports mode because it feels like you've got a better grip. My only complaint is at one point recently my drivers side window had trouble going up and down. Other than that it is an amazing car. The air conditioning is very strong and gets cold fast and there's vents in the back as well. Also, there's a window sun shield in the back to hide from the sun if you have people in the back. Probably works well with babies too.

A timeless and reliable classic.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

This car is like new and I bought it used 8 years ago. Virtually no maintenance, no repairs and the leather upholstery is durable and looks great. The sound system sound s great even though it only plays cassettes. The seats are adjustable and heated. My mileage remains as is-consistent and great on long drives the ride is extremely smooth and I can accelerate reliably and quickly for freeway driving. Also have heard from other Lexus owners that the configuration for windows has higher visibility than their newer models. My car has over 180,000 miles and I haven't had to get a repair yet.

Beautiful and powerful all in one.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

It is the best car I have ever owned. I love the look and the comfort. The wood steering wheel is lots more comfortable if it is hot or cold outside. I love how the headlights re adjust every time you turn the car on so they are optimal. I really like how the power is and have not had any problems with it other than having to change brakes and battery.. The sound system that it comes with is great and the heated seats are a must in winter.

I love my Lexus, it is beautiful, powerful and drives like a dream.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

I love the way my car handles. I has the smoothest ride and takes curves like a dream. It is a lot of car with a powerful engine and a lot of pick up. Even at 16 years old, I barely have to push the gas pedal to beat the other cars when the light turns green. This car made me fall in love with Lexus and I understand why everyone raves about them.

Comfortable and convenient Lexus es-300.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

My favorite features about this car are the radio and the sun roof. My Lexus is spacious and comfortable. The chairs are very easily adjusted, my two children's car seats fit well in the back seat. There is plenty of trunk space for traveling, packing up my stroller and all of my groceries. This car has served me well.

- Susanna M

As a girl this car is everything I wanted as a first car.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

Very beautiful interior, smooth on even bumpy roads, very comfortable seats and is an amazing first car for me. It is exactly what I wanted and in very good condition. It's too hard to not have it in good condition. Reliability is great it's a great car even the car make is very luxurious.

Lexus the only vehicle you'll ever need.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

My Lexus is almost 16 years old, and still runs like a charm. Lexus is the only car I will buy, once my 03' is no longer operational. I am a Lexus customer for life. They are well worth the price; every car-maker should have the same standards as those with Lexus brand.

- Angela B

Luxury 4 door sedan with all fully loaded features.

2003 Lexus ES 4dr Sdn

My car is a luxury four door sedan that drives like luxury. The only problem I have had is regular maintenance. It is all leather interior with wood grain makes it more luxurious.It's very roomy inside for a sedan. I have to say that overall it is a reliable vehicle.
