1998 Lexus ES 300 3.0L V6 from North America
Wonderful luxury sedan
Only problem I've had: SRS Light started flashing at me - fixed for free at dealership.
The interior is the star of this car. Power/Heated/Memory leather seats are extremely comfortable. Tons of leg room in the front - very ample in the rear. Even with 141k miles, there's not so much as a worn spot in any of the seats.
It's not the quickest car on the road, but it has plenty of power when necessary. As a luxury sedan, you can't expect a ton in that department.
It doesn't get the greatest gas mileage - 20 mpg in the winter and 25 in the summer - mix of city and highway.
It runs through the snow like it's on chains, which is very important for a Minnesota car.
VERY good sound system. 6 speakers and a stock sub-woofer really make this car pound if you want it to.
It's got a huge trunk - I've fit 4 golf bags in it. The first aid kit that comes with every Lexus is a nice touch too.
Overall, I'm very happy with my ES300. It's the first car that I've bought and it definitely won't be my last Lexus. In fact, after the incredible service I got at the dealership when I brought it in for the SRS light (free food/drink, great people, etc) and the incredible quality of the car, I really can't find a reason to go with another make.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
