I bought my ES 3.2L new in May '99. We've had it for a little over 6 years now and just recently had to replace a transmission speed sensor. That is the only non-scheduled maintenance in 6 years! Guess I got a good one. We had it in Europe for 4 years and this thing will cruise the autobahn all day at 100 MPH with no problem. It really has been an exceptional family car for us.
Huge trunk. Huge interior. Nice leather seats. Infinity stereo system is very nice. Great gas mileage for a big car (28-29 highway).
Doors are long, especially in tight parking lots (not made for Europe!). Limited visibility for close-in maneuvering.
