1996 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan


I purchased my 1996 Lexus es300 in 1995, used, with 130,000 well maintained miles. I drove all over the southeastern us and put another 128,000 miles on the car. 258,000 miles and still going strong. Just replaced transmission seal but the $550.00 is less then a new car and there's no depreciation at this point. Normal maintenance, Mobil 1 synthetic ( 8000 mile per change) and being alert to changing wear items makes a well built car very dependable. 1mz-fe 6 cylinder engine is powerful and dependable.

Best Features

Most engine and maintenance work easy to access.

Worst Features

Glove compartment is designed poorly. Interior air cleaner on drivers side and a bit challenging to change. Rear bushings tend to squeak when cold.
