Very good car, but not perfect!

1998 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan


Bought the car new. Overall a good
buy. I had to have the brakes
overhauled under warranty. I also had
to spend money out of warranty to
repair noisy tower strut parts on the
front end. Maintenance by Lexus while
under warranty was wonderful, but after
warranty costs are expensive. Still,
this has been a very comfortable and
reliable car with enduring styling.

Best Features

The V-6 engine is silky smooth as is the 4-speed auto transmission, and they both seem bullet proof. Interior is also very quiet. I still love the exterior styling.

Worst Features

Steering is too light and without feel. Brakes are mushy and take a lot of effort.
