1995 Lexus ES 300 3.0 from North America
Love it -- again!
Purchased 8 months ago, nothing has gone wrong yet.
I previously had a 1993 ES300, which I drove for almost 5 years until it was destroyed when my garage burnt to the ground. It had 205K on it at that time. I was very distressed when this car was destroyed, because I really liked it, and didn't think I would be able to afford another (we buy used cars and pay cash for them in my household).
About 6 weeks after this fire, and having not seen any vehicle I was interested in, because I was so spoiled by my previous Lexus, I found one 2 years newer with almost 60K less mileage in excellent condition -- same color, same interior, a few more features (like heated driver's seat and outside temperature indicator). I went to see it, and immediately purchased it.
So far no problems at all -- it was very well taken care of, and I was the 3rd owner.
Can't say enough good things about it -- it's over 15 years old and runs great -- smooth transmission shifting and very quiet interior. I know I was very lucky to have one this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
