2001 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I wanted a true luxury car that
wouldn't cost a fortune, was supremely
reliable, and would hold its value.
After 56,000 miles, I'm still truly
thrilled. My driving style is very
aggressive - hard acceleration and hard
cornering. I've had no problems
whatsoever, the car is still
wonderfully smooth and dead quiet.
Whether in rush-hour traffic or on
3,000 mile trips, I'm always pampered
and comfortable. Although a luxury
sedan, it is still FUN to drive and
well-mannered when pushed hard. I
strongly disagree with those reviewers
that claim this isn't a true luxury

Best Features

Beautiful genuine wood accents on console and doors; supremely comfortable seats front and rear; great sound system with 6-CD changer in glove box; more than enough smooth silent horsepower (I rated performance an 8 because an AMG E55 it's not).

Worst Features

Fortunately the traction control on 2001 and earlier ES300s can be switched off. When on, it will NOT allow hard acceleration while turning - like if you need to go quickly at a left turn light. Unless it is switched off, DO NOT get into that sort of situation!
