2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


The ES300 has been a very high quality and reliable automobile requiring very few repairs above and beyond the required scheduled maintenance. This vehicle gets decent gas mileage and generally averages about 21-23 mpg, and also has a very quiet and comfortable ride. However, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that this specific model has a slight hesitation in acceleration that the dealership was unable to correct. The automobile also has a fairly fragile paint job that scratches easily and is susceptible to rock chips. Reading the center console displays of radio/CD and heating/AC settings can be difficult when wearing polarized sunglasses.

Best Features

The vehicle handles well and has a very comfortable and quiet ride.

Worst Features

The slight hesitation in acceleration could be a driving hazard and should definitely be corrected. The paint job could be made a little more resilient to scratches and chips.
