About Lexus ES 250
Lexus ES 250 is a compact entry-level luxury vehicle manufactured by the extraordinary Japanese automaker Toyota's luxury automotive division Lexus from 1989 to 1991. The first Lexus ES 250 was introduced in 1989 as the first-generation ES, which is one of two flagship vehicles in Lexus' lineup. "ES" in its name stands for "Executive Sedan" or "Elegant Sedan". Although it had been produced through one generation, Lexus ES 250 had won lots of awards and recognition from public authorities.
Lexus ES 250 made its debut at the 1989 North American International Auto Show in January in Detroit as a 4-door sedan, then it went on sale in the United States in September 1989 as a 1990 model year vehicle marked as "luxury sedan of sports sedan". It was built based on the Toyota Camry Prominent/Vista (V20) and was offered in only one trim level. Lexus ES 250 was equipped with 15-inch alloy wheels, antilock brakes, a driver-side front airbag, cloth upholstery, air-conditioning, a cassette stereo and full power accessories and most ES 250s were further outfitted with the full plate of options such as leather upholstery, a power driver seat, a CD player and a sunroof. Lexus ES 250 had always been powered by a 2.5 L 2VZ-FE V6 engine rated at 156 hp and 160 pound-feet of torque, and this engine was fitted along with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Lexus ES 250 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Lexus ES 250 as an entry-level luxury sedan with fair performance and premium content is quite trustworthy and popular among people. But since you also have a Lexus ES 250, you had better be prepared in advance and know how to diagnose and solve these common problems on it:
First, loss of power. I believe every driver would be frustrated if when you try to accelerate, the vehicle suddenly loses power but that is what happened to Lexus ES 250. Some Lexus ES 250 drivers complained that the vehicle would make awful grinding noises while running and accelerating when it reached at approximately 170,000 miles, which distracted their attention and annoyed them a lot while driving. What's more, the vehicle has issues in starting. Sometime, they also had problems in inserting or removing the key. Once similar symptoms appear on your ES 250, the spark plug, ignition coil, and ignition lock assembly need a thorough inspection.
Second, transmission failure. Although transmission failure won't cause drivability issue, it could affect the driving experience. Some Lexus ES 250 drivers once said that the indicator did not match the gear, the transmission may slip and vehicle made whirring or whining noises, which is super annoying and a horrible distraction. Some ES 250 owners also complained that vehicle would start in another gear or not go into any gear at all, not to mention the frustrating delay in reversing. If your Lexus ES 250 is suffering from all these symptoms, the best advice is to inspect the transmission pan, shift cable and automatic transmission filter immediately.
Knowing what parts need maintenance could save you a lot of trouble. ES 250 wiper blade plays an important role in offering better visibility and lowering possibility of fatal accidents due to poor driving vision. But do you know it is made of soft rubber and have you noticed that it always is working under open environment no matter good or bad? You had better swap it at least once a year for your driving safety. Other parts such as door handle, door lock and emblem and so on also should be maintained on a regular basis.
