My 2nd Lex
By lexusk8 on


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


As the title says, this is the 2nd
Lexus I have owned, and so far the best
(I previously owned a 1996 ES300). I
bought this 2001 car with 64000 miles
on it, all highway, and this was
originally used as a business/company
vehicle. This is a big improvement
from the '96 in all aspects (exterior,
interior, comfort, performance, you
name it). I have always viewed the
ES300 as the "perfect" daily driver for
all seasons. Right now, the car has
over 76000 miles, and I use the ES300
for everything (work commute,
short/long trips, weekend drives). This
is and has always been the budding
example of Lexus quality.

Best Features

Auto-dimming mirrors, wood trim, 16" wheels, leather and heated seats, wood- and-leather steering wheel, 195-watt stereo system, instrument cluster, DRLs, xenon lamps, tailight design, UV- tinted glass

Worst Features

AVS (adjustable variable suspension) should be an add-on option for this car. The paint tends to chip easily for some reason, but touch-up is an easy solution. Lexus has never been able to solve the wind noise problem often seen in all the ES300s.
