Thank you for your help! Wow, thats some good information. Not what I expected at all. I thought it may have been sold originally by the Raleigh, NC Lexus dealer. No wonder he hasn't contacted me back with a service report.

According to another NC dealer, it hasn't been back to a Lexus dealer for the 30, 60 or 90 thousand mile checkup. 117, 444 miles at the last time sold sounds about right, the current owner said she bought it with 119,000 miles. She had the timing belt and water pumped changed in July '04 by the local Toyota dealer. I confirmed that with their service department.

The car has four different tires and that's just the obvious maintenence needed. The owner is clearly in over their head. I'm expecting to put some time and money in for suspension, tune-up, etc. This site is excellent for info and links.

I've been looking for an old muscle car to fix up but this seems more practical as a project and and eventual everyday driver.

She says $4,500.00 "As Is" with 130,00 miles. The car is remarkably clean outside and in, almost seemed too clean, but the report you provided is comforting. I haven't driven it or talked any further with the owner, but as of last week it was still available.

Thanks Again!

4500 for that car with those repairs sounds about right.. Make sure the front end is checked out by LEXUS.. That will cost about 1500 minimum.. Maybe this is why she has different tires..? Good luck..

Make sure you use this website as a guide and take it for a test drive. Cheers

lexusless, I assume you're talking about Johnson Lexus here in Raleigh? I'm here too, and bought my 95 from them in May of 04 with 84k miles. I know they've got some older ones up there now too, mostly 95 and 96 models. They do charge a bit of a premium for their cars, but you can negotiate with them, and you will KNOW it's ready for the road! I had the 90k service done as condition of sale. I also got them to change out the ecu unit with their 90 day / 3,000 mile warranty! 95 and 96 models have a funky flaw in the computer that creates an "off throttle shock" situation around the 40mph range. I do recommend checking them out. I would insist on a new timing belt, and ecu unit as condition of sale, and you'd be good to go. If you need a recommendation for an EXCELLENT local mechanic for your pending ls400 that doesn't rip you off, contact premium imports down on wake forest ave., inside the belt line, right across the intersection where Snoppy's Hot Dog's Restaurant is. You know where I'm talking about? Ask for Steve, and tell him you were sent by the Black 95LS400 that had all the rear control arms, suspension and differential mounts replaced last week. He'll know who you're talking about.
