1992 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan


Review

This car looks like and drives like it drinks from the fountain of youth. It's almost incomprehensible that it's been on the road for nearly 14 years and driven 18000 miles a year. If 'lacks character' means bulletproof reliability and no surprises - so be it! Design-wise and mechanically, it ain't perfect - but nearly. I look forward to buying another Lexus; I just wish they offered more in the way of wagons and AWD.


Favorite Features

Center console design: climate control and stereo controls - excellent. Excellent premium stereo. Comfortable ride without being mushy. Exterior design - looks nice even after a dozen years. Reliability - what can I say? I'd sooner drive this car cross-country than something new off the lot.


Suggested Improvements

Needs more torque, and then could use sportier handling. Automatic trans has some bad programming. Interior headroom is lacking.

Review

So far so good, no major problems, upper motor mount broke, but only $60 for the part and easy to replace. Get free loaner cars from the dealership when in for service... very nice.

Suggested Improvements

Standard cd player, more cup holders... normal stuff... everyone has suggested improvements no matter what car you own.

Review

This car has already become the BEST car I have ever owned including Mercedes and BMW. The only thing wrong with it is the Instrument Cluster Needles went dark..easily fixed by DASHUSA.COM for only 350.00 a permanent fix. Only run Mobile 1 syn oil and factory filters. Only has 111000 miles on it and expecting another 100,000. Fantastic car would buy another one, in a heartbeat.


Favorite Features

Happy with all features!!!


Suggested Improvements

I agree with another consumer..neeed to move the cup holder out from the dash.

Review

Bought used with about 6 thousand on it. Drove and loved until this year when upgraded to an LS 400. Sold to our son who still enjoys it. Fit and finish of this first-year-in-USA ES 300 far exceeds the current models. When you find a 92 or 93 in good condition it is worth a look. This one still quiet and solid on the road, responsive and fun to drive. Engines can be reconditioned if needed, but style only comes around now and then. Keep this car until it is an antique.


Favorite Features

Yellow fog lights, comfortable steering wheel positions, fine cruise control function, smooth effortless ride,quality seating for four, center console shifting.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability of electric radio antennamotor is poor. Replacement of lightedinstrument needles is costly, but worth it.
