2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

One big problem: I left the car in the
garage for my summer vacation for one
month. It went totally dead. Dearler
said it was not uncommon because of
all the on-board computer features.
Why put so many features if the
battery cannot support it? Service
consultants said I should have
mentioned that I was a frequent
traveller before making the buying
decision. So you have to be able to
afford to buy expensive car but no
allowed to travel? The salesperson
never told me that, and Mercedes and
Porches did not give me this condition.
2nd question: noise started to appear
after a year.


Best Features

Quietness; fabulous interior quality;


Worst Features

Corolla & Camry should not share that many common features with ES, may me feel like I am driving a cheaper car

Review

I had a 1993 Buick Park Ave Ultra that
was supercharged so I figured the
hesitation and lack of power was
because I was used to a different car.
The braking is poor, brakes replaced
at 14000 miles,car hesitates on
acceleration(dealer did the computer
fix yesterday)still the same,had
loaner car 2004 ES330 -same
problems,brakes, acceleration etc.


Best Features

Worst Features

Poor trunk light, acceleration,braking,arms not comfortable on wheel when driving for awhile(I'm 5'11)

Review

This is my 2nd ES300. I traded in a
1998 model for this car. Power and gas
milaege are less than last vehicle.
Brakes on car were poor and unsafe.
When dealer serviced car he informed us
there was a defect. Vehicle was not
recalled. Brakes were dangerous,
customers are not notified. You find
out when you complain about the brakes.
I will never buy another Lexus.

Review

Everything about this car is nice, but
the paint. I've notice several spots
where the paint is chipping. First, I
thought it was caused by treesap, but
the other cars were not affected. I
will discuss this problem with the
dealer.


Best Features

Just enough of everything.


Worst Features

better paint job!

Review

I have tested BMW 325i, Benz 240, and
Audi A4, and x-type before buying this
car. It is a very good value for what I
have paid. It is really a joy to drive.
The dealership is a valued-added
feature.


Best Features

Interior Design


Worst Features

The tail-ligt, that little circular light do not look right.
