Don't want to get too off topic, but no way is an ES300 worth the asking price. Basically, it's just an upscale Camry with the Lexus 'service' that cost upwards of $10,000 more. What's more suited to worth the asking price maybe the Acura TL/CL. Compared to a BMW or even a Lexus in the near luxo market, it's cost thousands less.

Anyways, I don't think you should expect a loaner from most mainstream dealers. I got a shuttle to work (5 miles away) when I had to drop off my Saturn for a few TSB fixes. Rentals can be arranged for a small nominal fee. There are a few exceptions. My brother received a loaner for his Honda when the ETA on his repair went over a day. But, again, you shouldn't expect a loaner from mainstream autoline such as Saturn or Honda. Most mainstream dealer can't afford giving loaners out to everyone who gets serviced. Get a luxo vehicle and pay thousands more if you want this level of service.
