Have owned a '92 ES 300 for about six years and I still have it. My 99 GS is just as impressive and it gets almost the same mileage on a long trip. There's a lot to be said for a used Lexus from the dealer. Same quality, same service, at a fraction of the price. Lousy in the snow, though.
Lexus quality and reliability - the dealer as well as the car.
Small trunk and small opening. OK for cases but not for bulky objects which I occasionally carry. Use the ES for this.
