New model year for the ES line. Modern and fresh styling. Nice front end and back end.
Solid material and workmanship compared to other mid-sized sedans.
The ES is luxurious, classy, yet not too overtly ostentatious.
ES model has been noted for their reliability and durability. Consumer Reports surveys consitently rate this model high in reliability.
Currently own another ES 300, model year 1997. Approaching 125K miles on this car without any major mechanical or electrical problems thus far. Still runs almost as good as new.
