Am finally moving on from this car after 16 years. Has been a great auto. Extremely reliable. This was basically the Lexus ES 300 with a different body and missing some bells and whistles. Toyota later thought this car was too good for the price and "decontented" it. I've had no major issues or repairs with it. Replaced the timing chain around 80k miles. I'm even reluctantly giving it up at this point, but there are just too many nice features on the new cars to pass up. I have the black exterior and tan interior and still think the car looks good today. A real peach.
Reliability, smooth ride, good power in V6, decent gas mileage, huge trunk.
Not much. Small negatives I've had include the power antenna motor dying, paint chipping on wheel covers, some radio control buttons cracking, and an electrical sensor going bad.
