    I had a 1994 ES300 for a year or two.

    I liked it a lot. But mine had like 77k or 80k miles or something :dunno:

    depends on who you buy it from, even though they are reliable, if the car wasnt taken care of it will be crap

    but if it was taken care of there should be no problems even with that mileage

    i almost bought a es300 but i ended up with my 93 legend ls coupe

    BUT

    now i want to get rid of it cuz it requires PREMIUM FUEL ONLY and it gets only about 17-19 miles/gallon.

    interested? ill give a good price :) i swear it runs perfectly sweet but it drinks gas faster than i chug coronas at a party

    BTW: since i bought it (it was 100% stock) i managed to upgrade the sound system about $1500, and i managed to displace the rubber moonroof band or something and it doesnt slide properly

    im gonna be putting it up on autotrader.com when im ready to sell it. asking $6000 (i paid 6500 less than a year ago). 160K miles. I put on 20K of them (which is the reason i need to sell it, i drive so much that it's not affordable anymore, i need something that gets excellent gas mileage
