Why I don't buy 'American' or 'German'
By erpgupta on


1997 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan


This is by far the best car I have ever owned. 7 years of hard driving and not 1 single problem. Unlike my BMW 330i, $3,000 in out of pocket expenses that the dealer says are 'normal'. Or the Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition that my wife used to drive. In the first year it was back to the dealer 32x. I have owned all of the German brands along with a few Swedes and Americans thrown in along the way. Let's just say that after owning this Lexus and my wife's new Acura, we would never sink another dollar into any car unless it's Japanese.

Best Features

Tight build, superior finish, high quality materials, stereo. Even after 7 years the car still looks better than 99% of the cars on the road. Worth every single penny and then some!

Worst Features

Put a storage bin in the front of the center console so I have some where to store my opera tickets.
