Why not fit them yourself. Support the motor on a jack with a bit of wood packing. Unbolt the mounts and fit the new ones.

Part is most likely the priciest of the qoute but not knowing what the shops labor rate is I would have to say that is right aroound the correct amount for the repair.

How much should a mechanic charge to replace both rear struts and strut mounts on a 2000 Lexus ES300? How much to replace the front motor mount and the upper motor mount?


since it is a lexus i would not advise going cheap. the struts will probably cost around $350. the motor mounts will probably run around a grand since so much work is involved.

When I start my 2003 ES300 smoke comes out the exhaust


The same thing happened to my 2003 ES300 - the smoke is coming from the oil seeping into the motor's cylinders. This is the classic "Oil Gelling" problem in Toyota and Lexus vehicles. There is a factory recall on it, but it only covers to 2002 ES300 not 2003. The Lexus dealer confirmed my "oil gel" problem and went to bat for me with Lexus - they got the repair approved - Thank you Mr Local Lexus Dealer! The cost was nearly $4,000 - paid for by Lexus.

HID low beam headlight replacement for 2003 lexus es300


The HID bulbs are very easy to change, and can be bought online for much less than from the dealer. Check sites like xenondepot and Ebay for Phillips D2R (for reflector headlamps) HID bulbs and you can replace them yourself.

1996 ES300 needs approximately $3300 in work...keep it?


I would buy your car, Those prices are from the Lexus Dealership that are pretty much charging you the LEXUS name. 1 Option would be is to go to a "Toyota" dealership & I bet the repairs would be at least 25% off of that was quoted to you. Those repairs aren't that tough for a mechanic. I bet if get a couple qoutes from different mechanics, you can have those engine repairs done for $500 MAX, & that is on the high end. As for Tires, I just went to Walmart & bought a brand new set for $290, these 80,000 mile GOODYEAR VIVA 2, along w/ lifetime balance & warranty for all 4 tires. I have 198k on my 99ES300 & drives like I just drove it off the lot.

Buying 2001 RX300 65,000 miles extra clean


If you aren't mechanical, have someone who is check the car out. Specifically, the transmission fluid for color and smell (On toyota's they are to be changed every 30K miles, few drivers do this), and pull the spark plugs to see if they all appear relatively clean (a burnt looking plug indicates an engine problem). Ask to see the maintenance records. Oil should be changed every 3-4,000 miles if regular oil, 8-10,000 if synthetic.

The next BIG thing regarding maintenance is timing belt and water pump at 90,000 miles. Expect 500-700 for this, not at the lexus dealer. Probably double at the lexus dealer.

I would be interested under 12,000. Very interested under 10,000.

FYI, I'm driving a 95 ES300 with 170,000 miles and it runs like a top. These cars require very little in the way of repair if they are maintained. My goal is 300,000 just to see if it can be done. Unfortunately, I drive a total of 1,000 miles a month these days. So it will be a while. On the interior, you can have very nice new leather seats installed if the rest of the interior is in reasonable shape. Cost around $1,000 or a little less.

Good luck!!
