    Hey guys - So the time has come for me to move on to a more efficient daily. As much as I LOVE this rig - it's becoming a little silly for my city commute.

    So I have a 1998 LX470 that is in really great condition - I picked it up from a dealer here in Nashville where the previous owner had it serviced so there was a long history of upgrades and service.

    Every single electronic piece of this car works great - even the little antenna.. along with the AHC and adaptive ride settings. All the ones I test drove seem to have something off on them but this one checked all the boxes.

    It rides really, really well - I'm amazed at the build quality of these cars but this example stood out to me when test driving. Everything feels tight and there no squeaks and rattles like others I drove.

    Details:
    • Imperial Jade Green with dark gray two-tone (Paint is in great condition) only a few minor rock chips on the front and VERY minor paint peeling on the gray section under the doors, which I found to be a common problem here.
    • 139K miles and climbing as it is my daily driver.
    • Michelin LTX with a ton of tread left
    • 3rd row seats (in storage - will come with sell)
    • Mechanically extremly sound (Previous owner replaced timing belt along with a long list of service details, flushing fluids, etc.)
    I looked around for a long time for a low mileage LX470 with a good service history and in really great condition. I'm having a hard time letting her go but it just doesn't make much sense at this phase in life.

    Let me know if I can answer any questions.. this car is completely stock and a blank page for anyone looking for a nice build.

    Low mileage, southern car, looking for $13,000 obo

    I am open to any feedback/questions/opinions on the car as well as pricing - I'm not trying to make a killing here.. just wanting to pass it along to someone who will appreciate it instead of throwing it on Craigslist.

    Thanks,
    John

    Mods: I've decided to hold on to the car until I find a replacement I can get into. I had no idea it would get this much attention so quickly - basically leaving me without a car. It's my daily driver and I don't want to rush into it. Please close for now and I will update when the timing is for fitting. So sorry for the confusion / I showed the car today and realized I need to wait until the timing is better on my end.

    Thanks guys,
    John

    Haha I'm trying my best here - didn't think I would get this many request. I think I made that last comment based on emotion.. I was just getting flooded. If someone is genuinely interested feel free to reach out. I'm actively looking for a new car.. just didn't want to rush into the next one and leave people hanging. So still for sale!

    If anyone is looking for a fresh build, this is a great candidate for a well serviced 100 series with really low miles. If there are any questions feel free to ask. Many have asked for some undercarriage pictures (assuming worried about rust)

    I will get those uploaded here ASAP. For any of the worriers - this is a southern car. I would compare it to any other Tennessee car. I also do not buy rusted cars.. It just doesn't make sense here in TN when there are plenty on non-rusted cars available.

    Again I will grab those pictures ASAP and upload here.

    Price is OBO, make an offer.

    I totally get the emotions and the back and forth. I was torn on putting mine up.
