2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
My first luxury car purchase, used of course so someone else can take the depreciation hit, and I don't think I can ever go back to another less comfortable car. It is very quiet with an incredibly smooth ride. The cabin is classy, with high grade leather and wood grain accents. The steering and handling can best be described as silky. Keep in mind this is a luxury car, not a sports sedan, so it doesn't drive like a sports sedan. Highway mileage is 28 to 32 mpg, depending on speed and head wind. I had some warranty work done, (catalytic converters btw) and was VERY impressed by the Lexus dealer's service. 83,000 miles and appears as good as new. I will definitely look into a Lexus again.
The quality of the interior. The silky smooth ride and handling. The very quiet cab. Very sharp looking car. High quality workmanship.
