What is this discussion about?
Lexus ES 300, Lexus ES 330, Sedan
May 13, 2009 (8:26 am)
I am the original owner of a 1998 Lexus ES 300. It has just turned 81K. Besides the usual maintenance at every 3,750 miles, I have had the following done:
New tires at 45K.
Replace cabin air filter at 60K ($75).
Replace 2 oxygen sensors at 64K ($500).
New battery and alternator at 75K (405).
The brakes still have 25% left and a Lexus dealer has never seen the car since I bought it. A good independent garage in Seattle has always serviced it. I plan to replace the timing belt & water pump at 90K.
Now a question for you experts - how long can I expect it to go without major repair?

Depends on what you call major repair. If you consider a Radiator or Alternator major, then probably 150,000 miles. If you consider the engine or trnasmission major, you can probably get to 300,000 miles if properly maintained.
#5429 of 5443 Es300; abs, traction control
Jul 20, 2009 (6:02 pm)
Hi. I have posted in this forum many times before but I need help with another issue. I have a 98 es300, 199,400 miles on the odometer. Just replaced the alternator with a rebuilt one. The abs and traction control light have flickered on and off for a few minutes 2-3 days in the last week. The lights go on simultaneously and blink for a couple of minutes then go off. Can anyone tell me what is going on and how do I correct this? I know that I will have normal breaking even if the system is off. Thanks for your input.

Go with the Michelin Primacy MXV4. I put them on my wife's 02 Lexus ES300 and my 09 Camry. They have 60K warranty and are the top rated tire in the November 2009 Consumer Reports tests of 29 H & V rated tires. They are also best in class on tirerack.com road tests and consumer reviews.
Really upgraded the Handling significantly in from the OEM Camry Bridgestone Turanzas which wore out prematurely.
#5433 of 5443 2003 Lexus ES300 Just Purchased
Dec 25, 2009 (5:37 pm)
Hello all and Merry Christmas!
Just purchased a 2003 Lexus ES300 with 57K miles. Paid 13K for it in Houston, Texas at Westside Lexus. Rudy Hall was my salesman and did a good job I felt. If you need a good friendly salesman give him a call. Car is in pretty awesome shape. New Michelin tires and all the services are documented through the dealership and even the 60K and 65K miles services have been completed. Car was bought and traded in at this dealership. They would have certified it for $2900 more, but I decided against it for the money.
Moving from a Volvo S80 into this machine. The volvo has been an awesome car except for the electrical repairs that are starting to add up.
Looking forward to learning more about this car from you guys! Thanks
#5434 of 5443 2006 Lexus ES330 alarm system
Jan 08, 2010 (11:40 am)
I just purchased a 2006 Lexus ES330..i was offered by the dealership to purchase an alarm system. I was wondering if i am being offered an item that is already built in the car. I need your help ASAP because i still have the option to cancel the installation of an alarm system. I was also offered to purchase a warranty, 4 years/50,000 miles for $2,100. Is it worth it to buy the warranty? My new car's mileage is 45,700. Thanks. Pinaynars

Feb 03, 2010 (7:11 am)
My driver's side low beam just went out on my 2002 Lexus ES300. Can I just replace a bulb or do I have to buy the whole headlight assembly. The manual doesn't say.
