2nd Gen Es300 Purchase Questions


Recommended Posts

I'm new to lexus and the site (great site btw!). I'm looking to purchase a 95-96 es300 w/under 110000 miles. After searching and reading FAQ I've found the following information to check before purchase:

service records

accidents

# owners

motor mounts

brakes

oil sludge problem

transmission issues?

Is there anything else that I should specifically look for or be wary of with this generation?

Thanks

John

Oil sludge problems are mainly with the 97 - 01 models. But service history is very important for all years ES. Have the car inspected by your mechanic before you purchase. If the seller does not let you take take the car or drive it themself, run, away from the deal. B) Welcome to the club! ;)

good work you are prepared to be a great owner with knowledge .

With a 95-96 the tranny and service are the most important.

Make sure the a/c runs on a hot day.

Have a tech inspect it for structural damage and mechanical prefection.
