I now understand the meaning of quality!
By Rick in Lyndhurst on


1998 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan


I purchased this car about a year ago with 180,000 miles on it. Since then I have put about 15k on it with absolutely no problems. I have had Toyotas exclusively in the past, and have loved them. I figured I would give this 9 year old a shot since it was priced at only $3500.00 and I needed something different. I could not be more pleased. It rides like a dream and I get surprisingly 25+ mpg on regular gas. Only problem was when I took it to the NJ state inspection. They said I had an "exhaust leak". I must have been the designated "quota failure" that day, because I drove it back to the same station in the afternoon and passed with flying colors. 2 words... GREAT CAR!!

Best Features

Audio system is fantastic (display is gone, but once you pre-set, who cares anyway. Quiet ride, nice handling, comfortable seats, lots of trunk room. Heat is great in the winter and A/C is ice cold in the summer
