Lexus ES250 Reviews
Great cheap Lexus if you can find one! I own a 91 ES250 as well as a 2006 Altima SE with the VQ35 engine, I would rather drive the Lexus. Car is smooth as silk, has enough power, comfortable. This car, like the LS400 was well ahead of it's time. I still find little things about my ES that I don't have on my 06. My only gripe is that it has the turning radius of a dump truck.
Lexus did great with this one!
Its a fun car to drive down the freeway. easy to find a parking space for. Great gas milage. However, it would be a little nicer if it had tilt steering. Repair costs can be quite expensive, but the make and year of the car says it all.
