The Lexus ES300, part of the ES series, is a mid-size executive car from Toyota's luxury division, Lexus, a multinational Japanese automobile manufacturer renowned for its quality vehicles. Introduced in 1991 for the 1992 model year as the second generation of the ES series, the ES300 transformed the series with a more curvaceous and stylish design. It shared its design with Toyota's Windom (XV10) and was assembled in the Tsutsumi plant. Notably larger than its predecessor, the ES300 included new auto parts like projector headlamps in a curved housing, a three-slat grille, and the emblem positioned on the hood. The interior was luxuriously furnished with walnut trim on the center console, leather seats, and an eight-speaker premium sound system. In terms of performance, the ES300 carried a 2.5-liter 4VZ-FE engine and later transitioned to a 3.0-liter V6 that could produce 200 hp and go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds. The vehicle's body was 30 percent stiffer, and its interior felt more upscale. The ES300's successful launch saw a significant boost in sales, with 39,652 units sold in the first full year. Despite evolving through multiple generations since 1989, the Lexus ES series continues to be a best-seller in the US, offering comfortable luxury with a focus on interior amenities, quietness, and ride quality.
The Lexus ES300, like any vehicle, is prone to wear and tear and eventual breakdown. Among its common issues is transmission failure, often reported around 100,000 miles, with symptoms like slipping or jerking, gear indicator mismatch, inability to turn off the vehicle, and unresponsive gear changes. Whirring and whining noises, and delayed reversing further signal the need for a possible replacement of the shift cable, automatic overhaul kit, and automatic transmission filter. Engine, braking, and suspension issues rank second in complaints, characterized by stalling while idling, reduced performance, overheating, and decreased power, acceleration, and fuel economy. Suspected faulty parts include the spark plug, oxygen sensor, air filter, drive belt, idle control valve, oil filter, throttle body gasket, EGR valve gasket, and camshaft seal, while for braking and suspension failures, the strut housing, ball joint, and brake pad set require scrutiny. Routine maintenance is key to preserving the vehicle's quality, with seat belts requiring particular attention due to their role in occupant safety. Regular upkeep of parts such as door locks, handles, and hood cables is also necessary.
