Looking At Is 350


Recommended Posts

Hello,

My cousin has a a 2006 IS 350 that he recently got into a light head-on collision and he bought it back from the insurance company. The car is fully loaded with 97k miles. I want to buy it back from him. Here is my concern/question:

I believed that are a couple recalls that haven't been taken care of.

1) Will the dealer still fix the recalls if it has been in accident?

2) @97k, what kind of service(s) do I need, assume he didn't do the 90k service. How much will that cost at a independent shop?

3) does it need timing belt or this car runs on timing chain?

Thanks

To what "recalls" are you referring. Normally work under Toyota/Lexus "Technical Service Information Bulletins" (TSIB) is done at no cost only during the basic or power train warranties depending on the nature of the issue. This car is out of warranty on both.

The maintenance requirements, including for the 90,000 service, may be viewed without registering at https://secure.drivers.lexus.com/lexusdrivers/info/my-lexus/resources/owners-manual-search.do

The IS350 has a timing chain.
