Great used vehicle, love it!
By Research Nut on
1997 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan
Bought this 2yrs ago with 160k from a private party after getting it checked out at a Lexus dealership. Outside of the usual, I HAVE NOT SPENT A PENNY! Not one thing has gone wrong or needed to be fixed. It is just a wonderful car, and I'm glad all of my research (much of which I did here at Edmunds.com) in finding it paid off. After owning this car, I just cannot understand why people would ever pay more money that I paid here for another inferior, less-reliable used car (like anything from Detroit)...
RELIABLE. QUIET. COMFY. People think I spent a fortune on it, and treat me differently - if that's a good thing.
Cup holders. I bought some that clip on the a/c vents, and they work great. Radio display fading, but that's fine. My fuel economy is 15-16mpg, but these are all more minor quibbles.
