Link: Lexus LX 470 SUV (2002) for sale

Hello folks, I've been looking at LX470s for a while and I thought this one was already out of my grasp but it appears a few people have passed on it. The transmission was replaced in it, so that's a big question mark.

The seller is in the process of moving and are temporarily staying with the person who is responding to the text/phone calls, it sounds like the owners are older.

I'm going to have to drive a few hours to get it, so I was hoping someone could chime in before tomorrow morning if this seems alright, and what to look out for.

From the records it looks like it's been in the Bay Area all its life, and had regular oil changes, even if all of them are not documented. I surmise this because when the oil changes ARE documented, they are at 5k intervals.

The price is bit high for that truck. Did you see the frame? Check before buying as there can be corrosion. Is the transmisson a brand new unit or a remanufactured? Any remaining warranty on it?
Make sure the owner on the title is present at the time of the sale, else this is someone doing a business with a story. If you cannot meet the owner, I'd say it is suspicious and you may buy someones headache.
I bought my 00 LC with 222K miles for 4500.

Seems like a bargain to me and likely to be sold pretty quickly. But you need to see it in person or see a few dozen pictures to really know.

looks like my twin, I would go look at it, single owner, bay area (most likely little to no rust) and serviced. The rear seats do look worn however, but timing belt done? where in Norcal are you?

FWIW, I also paid $4500 for my 2000 LC with 214k miles in SoCal (only surface rust on the front bumper bar and nowhere else). However, based on appearance, mine was in rougher shape than this LX that you’re looking at appears to be in. Seller wanted $7k for mine, but after I showed them everything that needed replaced/fixed, they agreed to come down on the price. If I were you, I’d definitely checkout the front end (wheel bearings, ball joints, control arm bushings, steering rack, and shocks); they were all toast on mine when I bought it. This may help you talk the seller down closer to the $6-7k range...

Alright so I ended up buying this rig, with some haggling, for $6700.

My impression from the location and the people was basically that this was some family's daily driver, and they took middling care of it. They did not have any of the records, which could be a major red flag, but the general impression of incompetence counteracted any fishiness to the story - they said they are in the process of moving and threw away most of their things. They had no clue about any of its functionality, including the AHC, yet I do not suspect that this was someone else's car, because the names/addresses on the title, ID and registration all match.

I took it for a PPI. Brakes ~50%. No rust, no leaks, no codes. Looks like it's never been offroad. No tow hitch. All four tires are the same although the rear ones are newer. I remembered the '7 gradations' check on the AHC and that was fine. All of the electronics in the car checked out, except I forgot to check the audio until I was already driving home - the sub is definitely either blown or the foam has deterioriated since it distorts/rumbles. Also the windshield has wind noise from the driver's side that I am guessing has to do with improperly fitted moldings, otherwise the car is very quiet.

On the exterior some dings and scrapes, which I don't care about, but also the rear bumper is loose on the driver's side and sags a bit. It's not seated properly. The interior is a little grody - taking it for detail tomorrow. Then I guess I need to 'baseline' it though I am not sure if everything that is suggested on this forum is necessary - I will be doing very little off-roading.

So far, as I understand it, baselining =

-all fluids and filters
-thermostat
-heater Ts
-lubing up the driveshaft
-repacking front wheel bearings

Water pump/timing belt done ~70k ago. Not sure about spark plugs.

Great find.. and an excellent price.

I bought a single owner 02 LC from Arizona last month for $9600.
177K miles zero rust with a great service record with toyota replacement parts.
timing belt replaced twice most recently last year. Dealer I purchased it from changed spark plugs, drive belt, 2 new tires, recharged A/C, new filter.
Almost everything else was in excellent condition.
My rear speaker was blown and the navigation dvd was busted. Both quick fixes from ebay.

Congrats

Is the subwoofer really a quick fix? Did you replace with OEM? I read a replacement thread and it seemed like you have to open up a lot of the interior in order to get at it.

And you just buy a replacement DVD from ebay, correct?

i was lazy and just pulled back the panel to squeeze it out and in with the rebuild kit from simply speakers.. tight fit but saved me lots of time.

I count 5 bolts...a couple of them pretty low down from the top end of the panel. Did you skip all the steps with the skuff panel, seatbelt and seat anchors? Just go straight for the clips holding in the panel?

correct, just the bolts holding the top panel to allow me to bend it back and squeeze the sub out.
