        I owned the gold 2003 es300 from 64k to 99k but she needed a timing chain & motor mount work and the engine light was on I was reading up coolant issues so I traded her in on a 2 year old Camry XLE V6 with 27k on it & after 7 years it’s at 99k & doing much better in wear and tear than my old Lexus, but I do miss that pioneer stereo & memory seats and that wood grain steering wheel.

                          As a luxury car Lexus Has better reliability than any crappy German car but they are also expensive to maintain but not as expensive as any German luxury car money pits

                              I got a 2001 Lexus RX 300 with a V6 and it is THE BEST CAR EVER, never broken down on me in the 4 years I’ve had it, and it’s almost at 200,000 miles!

                                I bought a 2007 Lexus ES350 13 months ago on Scotty's recommendations... best darn car I've ever bought. 13 year old car and not 1 single problem with it. Changed the oil, transmission ATF, power steering fluid, and coolant. The thing truly does run like a clock!

                                THANK YOU SCOTTY!!

                                    NO?! I have a 2007 Lexus ES350 and still admire Avalons on the road. I regard them in the same class as lexus. They are wonderful cars, I might buy one as my next car once mine dies... if it ever dies

                                    A couple years ago, I was looking for a car to buy. I knew Lexus made a great car, but I couldn't find one that looked good to me. I bought a BMW that I loved the look of. I would rather pay more to fix it, than hate my car.

                                      Well, it depends, but i may understand you. I'm looking for some Lexuses to replace my old BMW but there is no Lexus i would be satisfied with. I would love to buy IS, but IS 250 has not enough power and IS 350 are insanely rare.. Newer IS are too expensive and already all are hybrids.. GS and LS are really ugly, old and excesivelly big with poor economy which will be main reasons why these cars are extremelly cheap. Lexus SUV (i guess some RX) are horrible - Their SUV's are one of the ugliest SUV's ever and i don't want to drive SUV...
                                      Lexus is awesome brand, but in certain segment of used cars has nothing to offer....

                                        1. Toyota makes the shitiest car seat, if you are into Japanese cars, at least buy a Honda. Their seats are lot more better on your back. You can't beat European cars comfort, safety and handling.
                                        2. I drove Toyotas for 30 years and wife still has a Prius and Highlander, but I learned not to drive either one for long trips (over 5 hours).
                                        3. I recently bought a 2015 Volvo xc60 and it drives like a dream. Extremely safe car. I can drive to lake Tahoe non stop and my back is fine.

                                          Well yes but your Volvo will break down over time, while if you drive a Lexus or Toyota I bet your back will be just fine.

                                                        @Hendrix Downs Do both Lyft and Uber to make sure you stay busy. I live in the L.A. area, and for some reason Lyft is more busier to me than Uber right now in my area. People don't like Uber as much. Houston might be different, so work for both platforms.

                                                          Hey Scotty, I live in the UK we don't have es300 but we do have GS300 here, same motor I think. We also have the Acura RL here but it's called the Honda legend with a 3.5l v6 just shy of 300 hp.

                                                          I'm debating between the two same year same mileage same price. Funny thing is, the Honda just seems better at first glance.

                                                          Something I'm missing here? Or is the Lexus still the clear better choice

Only thing I've done is battery an breaks done the timing belt and water pump. Owned it since 08 and it now has 230,000. Can't beat that, try that with any other car maker.
