03 Lexus Es 300 — Very good on gas!! Comfortable!! Quiet ride. Not that great on acceleration, but it is pretty quick. The interior is designed very nice, but I did add a wood dash trim to make it look richer.

Happy — Really like this car. Rides like a cloud. Awesome for road trips. Smooth, quiet, roomy, responsive on the highways .. great sound system. Excellent mileage... get as much as 31 mpg on the freeway, generally get 26 mpg in town. Dependable, but maintenance is normal but pricey. Weakness, the brakes in snow or rain. They work but you can tell by the sound it's the cars weakness. I don't want to work when I drive and this car takes care that I don't . Wish I would have put an invisible bra on the front of the car. Several long road trips and the front bumper paint is seriously chipped.

Looks, ride, quality, comfort, the extremely bright headlights, six disc stereo.

I'll probably cry the first time it's scratched.

I Am Pleased So Far. — I just got this a few days ago, a replacement for my sad Jeep. So far, I love it. I can't vouch much for the long term reliability, but mine's a 2003 and nothing is wrong with it. Sometimes I can't tell if it's running, the engine is so quiet, the car rides extremely smooth, and averages about 25 mpg. It's also nice looking without being too flashy.

Pros

Feels luxurious even if the car is 10+ years old.  Just broke 100,000 miles and still driving strong.

Cons

Perhaps not as aggressive or as sporty as a young, ego-driven guy would like.

All Around Solid Car. — 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 super smooth. This car is a top choice for a family car.

Love It — Over 170k miles and is operating great. The car has been extremely reliable. Window / door seals on driver's door are leaking slightly, contributes to wind noise sometimes, but not all the time. Might have to do some A/C and transmission work soon.
