#3750 of 5443 Pre-owned 2002 ES300 Prices
May 29, 2003 (6:56 pm)
It has to be a conspiracy! I have checked CarsDirect.com, Carfax.com and Edmunds for prices for a pre-owned 2002 ES 300. All of them are $30,995 no matter if they have 7K miles or up to 28K miles. I know this not the pricing board, but I could really use your help. Thanks gekko for the excellent advice. I test drove the Lexus and Acura and there was no comparison! The Lexus it is...I just have to negotiate a fair price on a 2002!

I did get a new battery in my key shortly after I bought the car 8 months ago, I got it from a local Jewler store, i guess its the same battery that watches take, I just can't figure out why it lost it's power so soon after. But I also forgot to say in my last post, I agree with those who said they hate those loud honking or beeping cars when you lock/unlock your doors with the keyless entry, I'm glad to hear the way that Lexus has done the newer models, with the quiet beep and/or flashing of the lights, I just wish mine would do somethin like the newer ones.

Just hit a deer on the way home. This is the second time in 2 years. I swear I'm taking up deer hunting this year to help reduce the deer population . Nobody was hurt, thank God!
The car took some damage on the front-driver side but is driveable. The hood is bent; the right fog lamp came out; the fender is also bent. Can anyone offer any advice as far as selecting a body shop that specifically tailors to Lexus vehicles? State Farm suggested Maaco. Are they any good? Can they match the paint exactly? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Purchased a new ES last week. Have driven about 500 miles now and have no complaints about the transmission. Extremely quiet ride and imo good value.

I used the Toyota/BMW body shop affiliated with my Lexus dealer (owned by the same family) for the repair I wrote about last week. The truck driver's insurance company paid for everything including the rental. It looks fine and they didn't find any hidden damage after the bumper was removed. Interestingly, the Enterprise minivan that picked me up at the dealership to take me to my rental car backed into a brand new Avalon getting out of his parking space. Deja vu! I'm starting to think bad luck is following me (although I wasn't driving and my car wasn't damaged).

Somehow my daughter managed to lose the battery in my key for her 1993 ES300. Short of going to the dealer, how can I find the type of battery required, so I can just pick one up at Radio Shack? Anybody Know the battery specs?
#3757 of 5443 Should be in your Owner's Manual. However, you should

#3758 of 5443 Batteries of 1993 ES300 Keys

The battery type is not listed in the owners manual,( it says contact the dealer) and since I don't have the old battery, the Radio Shack guys don't have a clue which one it is. Can anyone out there open their Key & give me info off their battery?

I would call your Lexus dealer's service dept. and ask for a recommendation. They would know who does a good job or not. I'm sure they have someone they use and trust when they resell a Lexus, or a new one comes in with some damage. I recently had some work done on my car after paint was dripped on the left front fender by some jerks fixing up the parking deck where I work. It happens that the Lexus dealership here in Charlotte, NC (Hendrick) owns a string of other brands and has their own bodyshop at another dealer's lot (City Chevrolet). They did such a great job repainting the fender you can't tell it from new. I'm sure your insurance company suggested Maaco because they are cheap. I would advise you to look elsewhere.
