I deliver in my car but I want to buy a Lexus. Any advice?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been looking around for a fairly priced used 2013 ES 350 or GS 350. My last car was an 05’ Cadillac STS and delivering for 3 years destroyed that poor car. It was a literal money pit and I’ve been steered towards Lexus by all the talk about reliability.

Will a 2013-2014 model withstand being driven this much...and will the repairs cost me over half of the cars value or be semi-affordable compared to other luxury brands?

These cars are built for miles so I would not worry. What kind of repairs are you talking about? And what would you be delivering?

      I plan to buy RX450h soon. It is hard for me to afford new one, so, I'm looking mostly on '15 - '18 models with about 30K mileage.
      I never had a hybrid before. Is it a good idea to buy a used hybrid at all? I noticed that RX350 has much more offer on the secondary market than RX450h. Am I making a mistake buying a used hybrid?

      Hello there, I'm new to this site but figured it would be a good place to get some advice. Okay, so I found a 1992 Lexus SC400 with 156k original miles on craigslist for $3500, clean title. I've been doing my research on these cars for awhile and this is the first I've actually found close to where I live. So I went to the guy's house earlier today to check it out and it seems really nice. It seems to have been decently taken care of, has originally red paint that has no clear coat peeling and only a couple tiny dings in the body. Also has moisture in the driver's side headlight but not a big deal at all. Overall I'd give the exterior about an 8/10. Interior is also really nice, only a few small tears in the driver's side seat, broken door handle, and a few of the gauge cluster needles are blacked out, I've heard this is common on these cars. Car also has a new exhaust system on it that is quiet at low rpms, but comes alive at higher rpms, which is perfect in my opinion. So besides what I've already listed, the only other flaws are that it could use new tires soon, the left-hand turn signal bulb needs to be replaced, and the brakes felt a little spongy, probably just from the brakes needing to be bled. Luckily, the dude said he would give it to me for $3k. So, is $3000 for this car a good deal? Any problems I should watch out for with this mileage? Any insight is much appreciated, and feel free to ask questions, I'll answer what I know! I'll upload what pictures I have of it c:
