I Love my Lexus!!!

Just purchased my 2003 ES 300 in January 2013 - like new w/ only 80,000 miles on it. I have to say it is the smoothest riding car I have ever driven or ridden in - it's also a quieter ride, as well. Add to that a feel of luxury that simply emanates from this car - all of this definitely has me loving this car!!!

Best Car I Ever Owned

I bought my 2003 Lexus when it was 5 years old. Not a thing I did not like! Sadly, after over 145k miles it developed an oil leak that keeps making the 6th cylinder misfire. My mechanic did not recommend fixing the leak due to the cost of the repair and the miles on the engine and the age of the car. So I did replace the 6 cylinder at 126.00 to buy some time to find another car, because sooner or later, it will start to misfire again. As this is my first Lexus, I also now realize what a great deal I got on it. So the bad thing about this car is once you have one, you can never go back. I am not even thinking of looking at another make. I recommend this car to anyone and everyone.

I am the second owner of my 2003 ES300 which I have owned now for three years. It has always been garaged by myself and first owner as well. The ride is exceptional for a car now thirteen years old. I have no issues with transmission shifting as I have heard other people have had. The engine runs quietly and efficiently. The interior on this generation of the ES is the nicest one Lexus has made to date. For a car with every available option except for the adaptive suspension, the only thing I have had to replace is one valve stem. I also believe the older Lexus vehicles to be built better. You would love one of these.

I bought a certified pre owned Lexus ES 300 over 5 years ago. It has never given me any trouble. It has almost 115,000 miles on it and is going strong. The amazing thing is I still get compliments on what a beauty she is! My last Lexus saved my life in an accident so I bought another one. Great Car.

Have owned vehicle for 10 months. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good car. buy and drive never no go no service. Some downsides, everything is really expensive to maintain or replace. But, it also hasn't broken on me in any serious way in ten months ;)

This car is not a sporty young man's car, although that is what I am. However, a friend of mine owned one of these and after I was done referring to it as a high cost Camry (nothing AT ALL against the wonderful Camry) I realized it was much more. This car is smooth, and responsive, but seat comfort is like an 88 caddy and atmosphere comfort, meaning ambient lighting an other niftys, is beyond definition. The '03 Accord I traded this for had a more aggressive driving style, but can't say that it performed better because behind the wheel of an ES, you are relaxed and aren't in the mood to race. Try this car as a passenger, and it WILL eat at you until you buy one.

What a great car! It is very comfortable and quiet. We are now true Lexus loyal customers thanks to the ES300. This is also the first "import" car I've owned, and it blows away and of the domestic cars I've owned in the past. If you get a chance, buy a ES. You won't be sorry!!

super smooth ride

by from wayland ma on May 2, 2016

I looked a long time for the right es300 because they run so well people hold on to them for a long time. I finally found a nice one with only 36500 miles and it runs and rides like a new car!

130,000 miles driven - nothing broke down!

by from New York, NY on April 14, 2009

This car is awesome in every sense! Most reliable car I have ever driven. After 130,000 miles absolutly nothing broke, thus even though its a bit expensive in the long run it is worth every penny.
