2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased a used 2002 last year with 53000 mile on it. It was a trade in at a local Mercedes Benz dealership here in S. Cal. Beautiful car, nice ride, great performance. However the driver seat is not made for people with long legs. The seat is short and the 6 way power seat does not allow the front of the seat to be raised enough for leg support or to be comfortable. Sadly this is not the kind of thing you discover until you are on a road trip. My other car is a 94 E 320 Benz, which I actually prefer driving due to the size shape and angle of the seat. I have noticed this issue with other Japanese luxury cars as well.

Review

So I purchased my ES300 about too years ago with 109K already on the clock. She was mint condition and had one owner..She was flawless even with the mileage and years on her. I purchased her and never looked back! To date she has ran flawlessly, always their when I need her. I had one time where she did not start and it was because of a bad battery, slapped a new one in and she fired right up! Lexus really built this car for the long haul, Sheila (My ES300) currently has 129K on her and each mile has been timeless on her. She continues to get better with time. I plan on driving her until she tells me, I can't go any further! LONG LIVE THE ES300 I love her!!!


Best Features

Moonroof, HID AUTO leveling headlights, high quality leather and heated seats, all auto up and down windows, Sound system is to die for out beats my friends 2014 Nissan Altima's Sound, Quiet engine you can barely hear her running, Auto rainsensing windshield wipers, Rides like she is hoovering above the ground on all types of roadway, The dashboard is gorgeous with woodgrain, coeworkers always compliment me on the interior. If you keep premium gas like it calls for in it she barely uses gas


Worst Features

The only gripe that I have with Shiela is her 6 cd-changer stereo, it gets kinda finicky every now and again. Other than that no complaints EVERYTHING works and looks as if it was new

Review

It is a comfortable car to drive. Smooth and quiet. No seat warmers. I don't know if that was even offered as an option at the time. It would be better if its performance was as good as its luxury.


Best Features

key/remote in one piece. Seat memory. HID lights, and CVT transmission.


Worst Features

should get a bit more power and better handling. and seat warmers.

Review

I have always steered clear of Lexus thinking it was more hype then anything. But I bought a 2002 ES 300 with 90k on it. In 6 months I have already taken it over 100k with trips to Dallas from Houston and also Houston to Chicago. It has performed really good. I have a couple issues the cup holders broke, the interior trunk/gas release doesn't work and the cd player jams occasionally but considering the car is 8 years old and has over 100k miles I can't really complain. It's quiet. Rides smooth and has averaged 23 mpg pretty much since I got it. Avg almost 30 mpg on the road. All in all a very nice vehicle that seems like it last quite a while. My previous ride was an 07 m35.


Best Features

heated seats, cassette player (to use cassette adapter), quietness, gas mileage


Worst Features

better cup holders. Higher quality leather
