The best car you can get for under 5K
By Brian on
1997 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan
I Purchased this car in June of 2009 and it had 105k miles. It is now at 120k miles and runs great. I have never had to take it to the shop for anything other than maintenance. It is very comfortable and reliable. This is the 3rd Lexus in my family. My mother has had an IS and a RX hybrid. all great cars. It has a good amount of features. The gas mileage is ok for a V6. I get 19 combined and I have gotten 28 on a road trip averaging 75 mph. I would highly recommend this car. It is very solid, I never have to worry about my car breaking down. As a college student, I can't afford to pay for costly repairs. This car has Toyota reliability. I think this car will go for another 100k miles easily!
I like the power of the V6 when you need it. The leather seats with driver memory are nice, The sunroof, 6cd changer in the glove box and the Auto a/c. Reliability is great!
The cup holders are a joke! Seeing that this car is over 13 years old I'm sure Lexus addressed most of the issues.
