1993 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan
I traded my '93 V-6 Camry in on a '93 Lexus ES300 and have been very happy with it. The ride is super quiet and smooth and feels as if I'm in a newer car!! The suspension is nice and soft and absorbs bumps without any harsh ride. It has 153k miles (only 152k at trade-in time)and you'd never know it. It does need some fixes, but does not in any way interfere with the reliability or drivability. Needed repairs: 2 cv axles, new exhaust flexpipe, valve cover gasket and power steering and alternator belts. Possibly new tie rod ends, due to loose, sloppy steering and too much freeplay. These engines never die and can go to 400K with NO problems!!
Moonoof. heated seats, power, reliability, quiet engine, beautiful exterior & interior style and superior comfort, lots of features, excellent handling on corners/turns.
Make longer-lasting heated seat on passenger side, automatic trans. is a bit jerky/rough from park to reverse,install factory cd player and the handling on snowy roads is ATROCIOUS!! LOWER repair parts cost! WAY TOO expensive to fix these cars, which leads owners to neglected maintenance!!!
