1999 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan


12 yo, 142K. New noc & MAF sensors in 11th year @ about $1K. Alternator died at 52K mi, just out of warranty. W-pump died at abt 100K. Other than that, routine maint.

White pearlcoat looks as good as it did in '99; few very small dings on hood - touch-up paint works. Beautiful car & design, IMO. Very difficult to develop a scratch on exterior. Leather wearing very well. Wood appliques on dash aged a bit due to moisture/cleaning.

Interior dash 'boring'; roomy in front; headroom bad in rear for 6 ftrs. Cup hldrs useless. Nakamichi superior. Good perf.; gas mileage 21/28.

We all have good days and bad. No day is completely bad if I get to drive this car at the end of it. Great buy.

Best Features

Exterior styling, reliability, fit & finish, economy, Nakamichi sound. Smooth, quite ride.

Worst Features

Cup holders. Sensors/electrical have been a bit problematic, but not terribly bad,
