1996 Lexus ES 300: Enjoyable Highway Cruiser
October 8, 2012
We've already put a lot of highway miles on our ES 300 -- most notably, Phil's cross-country trip. And after after a recent (and much shorter) five-hour highway trip, I'd agree with his sentiments. Our ES is a solid cruiser. It's pretty quiet, it's easy to see out of, there's sufficient V6 power and the front seats are comfortable enough. And as a nice change of pace, I actually enjoyed being unplugged in the sense of not having Bluetooth or auxiliary/USB hookups. I listened to some terrestrial radio here and there, but for the most part it was just me and my thoughts.
The ES may be the doormat of our long-term fleet, but so far I'm enjoying it nonetheless.
