Luxury looks and feel in a family car. Avoided a minivan or wagon for 8 years with this one. Fits all car seats.


3 of 4 pop-up cup holders have broken.


Family-friendly Luxury That Holds Up Great! — Also suits aged parent passenger with mobility issues. Trunk fits all walkers easily, front passenger seat adjusts to suit everyone! Great for long-haul, family road trips, commuting, easy to park. Love that a good Toyota mechanic (and there are a few around ;) can handle this car. Also love going to the dealer when necessary - it's like a spa in there!

Nice ride




I Love My Lex. — I have 301,000 miles on my es and rides like brand new. I would recommend this car to anyone, as long as you maintain it properly. Gas mileage is great, and i had some rims and custom things on it and it turned lots of heads.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

No xenon.


98 Lexus Es — This is great car for everyone. The performance if great. The V6 is top quality and doesn't let you down. The cost is very minimal compared to other top end cars. If I have the chance, I will purchase the new model of the ES.

Awesome performance and detail for a car 10 years old with 150000+ miles on it.


could have better handling (less body sway) and better tires.


Great Deal — For having 150000+ miles on it, it is a very nice car. Everything still works inside, including heated seats, a/c, seat adjusters. It also drives like it only has 50000 miles on it. Good horsepower and good torque and really picks up around 4000 rpm. I think we bought it for around 3 grand so it's a very good car.

All Around Solid Car. By greekinese

The Lexus ES300 is a very reliable and safe car. It also has a sleek look to it. Lots of room on the inside for a midsize sedan for stretching out on long trips. Speaking of long trips, the ride is... Read More

Totally Worth It By Brook

I love it! Had it since 2006, totally reliable, GREAT LOOKING and smooth riding. Downsides are that it needs premium fuel and the pick up is not the greatest. If you are looking for a used luxury car,... Read More

Good Buy By OKqPwixvGDuXgylmrIJ

These would make great cars for anyone, with low mileage. I like the not overly-complicated dash and radio controls. The sound system is fantastic, loud and accurately recreated. The six disc change... Read More
