Not too bad of a choice for the money.

1997 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan


Well... When I bought it four years ago I thought it was a perfect car, and it is close to that. However, I had to change rear bushings, fix brakes, change timing belt, rotors, window motor went down (when driving on highway), stabilizers had to be changed, wheel bearings had to be changed, exhaust, the heater on driver's seat stopped working right before last winter. So... this car always took me from point A to point B with comfort, but it's not as perfect as it may seem to be. Lexus is reliable, but far from perfect. The best car I had so far was Civic (but again, it was practically new).

Best Features

Exterior style. Doesn't look out of style even after 12 years. Comfortable ride. It does take you from point A to point B, even if you have to change some parts now and then. Heated seats (when work).

Worst Features

Long term quality.
