"This is our family's THIRD Lexus ES car.(1996,1998 ES300) The car is used as a daily driver, on some of the toughest highway roads in the country, in New Jersey, and, it passes the test every time. In the last 20 years, ALL we ever replaced on both Lexus ES300 cars were, batteries,, oil changes and, tires(from many pothole blowouts!!) All I can say is, this car is VERY reliable, comfortable, and maintains it's value. I now look forward to the SAME longevity with the upgraded Es350.
