I absolutely love this car since it debuted. I owned a previous 1990 ES 250 (2000-2003) until it was totaled in an accident, which I walked away from. Since then I owned 2 Volvos 960s but when I saw another a ES 250 sitting on a lot and even w/145,800 miles on it I had to have it. It very luxurious with leather and the wood and being it's a lexus, it will last for at least another 10 years and 100,000 miles. Plan to keep it forever.
The best car! Have owned the car it's whole life. It had no major problems until it's 14th year when we replaced the radiator and power steering hoses. The comfort of a Lexus is second to none and the drive is still nice even though the car is going on 16(the ride is a little rougher in the Minnesota winter). The only pitfall of owning a Lexus this old (or at any age) is that repair costs are not cheap. My family is dedicated to the Lexus/Toyota name and will buy no other vehicles as this car has been so incredibly reliable for so long.
