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


Although I do like this vehicle, I have
to say it totally lacks 'get up and
go'. It has major hesitation when
trying to pick up speed QUICKLY such as
getting on an interstate or crossing a
lane(s)rapidly to get out of traffic's
way. It has stalled badly in critical
situations. I know in the years
subsequent to 2002 the engine has been
upgraded to a 3.3 litre but I just
wonder if .3 is enough to do the job.
I doubt I would ever buy another ES
unless that engine was significantly

Best Features

I LOVE the looks of the exterior front end. The inside is beautiful too. It has a quiet, smooth ride. Like gliding along. Corners beautifully also. The stereo system is great and the leather seats are fabulous. Very roomy. It also has a large trunk which really comes in handy.

Worst Features

It needs a MUCH bigger engine. It hesitates severely at critical times when power is quickly needed.
