New ES 300 owner

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a 97 ES 300 at auction.  Its a high mileage DUI forfeiture but in surprising shape. My first venture into Lexus. (I have a 2000 Tundra so I'm familiar with the products). What do I need to know the first 6 months (beside check the oil, etc....)

Old Coast,

Welcome to the family!

First off, enjoy the car. They're great vehicles. My wife's first Lexus was a 97 ES300 and we loved it, loved the 2004 even more, and her present 2011 is the best.

That said, your car is 19 years old and with its high mileage there are some things to be aware of, and this list is part Factory and part Lexus Forum Members additions :
