You got a great deal on that one. Unfortunately, for us up here in the northeast, those are MUCH harder to find. I had to go to FL to get mine as "rust free" was my top priority. Even though it's a relatively simple task for me to go to FL to grab a car, it's a logistical headache for most. You take a bigger risk has you have to buy airfare before you can even see the car in person. This Covid crap isn't helping either. Yes, there are better deals out there. But this one is super convenient for the OP and it isn't a bad price if he is comfortable with it. The OP just has to accept that he is paying a premium for convenience. There's a lot of stuff that I pay someone to do now that I used to do on my own.i'm not telling him to buy a beat up rusty ole truck; Plenty of 100 models available under 10k with full maintenance that just so happens to have high mileage.
I paid 9900 for my 2006 LX470 with 205k miles last year; one owner southern truck. They had already done the tb/wp and swap all fluids along with spark plugs. They are out there. Spending 18k is creeping towards 2008/2009 lx570 territory.
that extra 8-9k can go A LONG ways in OEM upgrades. I see no difference in a 200k mile truck and a 100k mile truck if maintenance are equal.
