Awesome car!!! Bought it with 85,000 miles on it in 2006 and now have 322,000 miles on it and aside from scheduled timing belt replacements it has, basically, been only brakes, wipers, a couple of headlights and tires, It has all original equipment except radiator as my mechanic saw some bits of rust so I just had him replace it. Original alternator, ignition, transmission, steering etc. Have used Plus (87) gas and every 3 months treat it to a premium (93) and it runs great. I put about 25k per year on it and looking forward to 400k in about 3 years or so. Great car!
great car. Only 2 repairs of consequence. Replace rear struts assemblies as it was causing a knocking sound over bumps. the support rubber on end of strut was excessively worn and replaced at 90k mi. Lexus charged about 400 ea. incl. labor to replace and re-align. Replace rear speaker in window and 2 add'l speakers as they were cracked and made cracking noise when base or volume turned up at all.
Incredible vehicle. Have run regular gas in it since we bought it with 37,000 miles in 2006. Now has 110,000 miles on it and no hint of any engine problems. Gets 26-28 mpg on the highway. Only problem was worn out hydraulic arms for trunk that made the trunk lid a guillotine. Had to complain to Toyota to get them replaced, I was surprised at how dishonest the Lexus dealer was in acknowledging this problem.
Excellent vehicle. I have had this vehicle since 2002. The maintenance is neglible. The brakes had to be changed once. Other than that tires, batteries and oil change is the only other maintenance expense. it is hard to like any other car after you ride this car. Very very quiet. I have 90000 miles on the car.
Very satisfied with the performance of this car since 2005
