2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Too many problems for a luxury car:
computer failure on braking system,
jerky transmission, and inferior tires.
Had to replace Toyo tires at 20,000
miles due to very loud road noise. The
cost of replacement was partially
covered by warranty. Poor radio
reception without external antenna.
Poor gas mileage for a car with no "Get
up & go" performance.
Great interior design for comfort. Like
convenience of 6-CD Player and
the "smart" windshield wipers.
Needs better transmission & more
horsepower to improve performance. Tire
warranty should cover total cost of
replacement when dealer acknowledges
that the tires are defective.
