Guys, there are 3 LX that in my area(seattle) that I don't know how to choose , anyone might can help give some suggestions , very much appreciated !
1. 2009 - 64k miles , black , $30000
2. 2011 - 83k miles , white , $28000
3. 2013 - 110k miles , black , $31300

The LX seems not that many in my area for the last few months so it seems to me it is hard to get a good deal. I don't own a suv at this time so kinda want grab one and start trying out some easy overlanding trails.
The 1st and 2nd are from private sellers and both have 3-4 previous owners, is it a good deal ?
I actually prefer white than black , and I've checked it out quickly with AHC in high mode and took a few pics as shown below. Does that rust in picture I should be worry about ?

those pics show zero rust. I would buy the newest 200 I could afford. Miles really dont matter to me. Last lx had 260k miles on it when I bought it.

2011 - White on tan 95k miles - 1 owner - $28k - All service records - new front and rear bumpers (saw the car before replacement, they just had parallel parking cracks and chips in them), new radiator, services up to date, new rotors and pads on the rear. Went through a full dealership inspection and detail prep before purchase.

I think white is the better color option to black, won't show pin striping from shrubs and stuff rubbing on it as easily as black. In california white also means just a cooler car with all this sunshine. I don't think on the LX570 the buy any miles is as easy of guidance as on the 2UZ engine.

Thanks a lot guys for your input. Sorry I don't have any knowledge on rust. How about the part that I red circled below ?

Found this seemingly looking good deal on '18 with 37k at $57k. Looking into it further, I ended up pulling accident records and seeing that the 'minor accident' on the carfax turned out to be the LC getting t-boned by a charger at 43mph at an intersection. Impact was to the rear passenger side, basically right where the rear wheel is. Based on the damage of the Charger, would you guys here say stay away?


Pics checked out for the most part. Just wondering how badly axle could be if it wasn't replaced. Records indicate a short time after the accident, it was checked in to a toyota dealership for oil change and service, indicating it was possibly fixed immediatly.

Thoughts? I am going to look tomorrow. Sales guy sent pictures, no rust in sight. They aren’t budging on price though.

Checks all the boxes. Low ownership. Clean Carfax. Looks like in good condition. I would say $21-23 k I would take it

Thanks! Anything to look at? I can look at a 100 and tell, but 200’s are foreign to me!

If you can be patient wait. They should come down. If you really want it go for it. It’s a great rig. No rust is key.

They are very firm on the price. I’m betting the tied up too much money to get the previous owner in a new ride.

That's amazing. For comparison, the highest mileage LC200 I could find on Autotrader is a 2008 with 330k miles for $19k.

Btw: 522k miles at 15mpg means this LC has drank 35,000 gallons of fuel, which is roughly 87 hot tubs full. Assuming $3 per gallon the owner has spent more on fuel ($105,000) than on the purchase of the car.

Good observation, and I guess there’s always that one guy that compares everything to hot tubs :rofl:.

Hey all,

Looking to join the LC200 family and had 2 offers accepted, just have to pick which one and would love any and all input, thanks in advance! Both fit my family needs perfectly fine, my preference is for the Heritage based on looks alone, but cannot ignore the monetary incentive to get the regular model. Wondering what y'alls take on this is.

1. 2019 Land Cruiser - Dealer demo,w/ rear entertainment package, ~4k miles $71k + taxes/fees
2. 2020 Land Cruiser Heritage Edition - Brand new $83.9k + taxes/fees

The 2019 seems the better value. I would look for a better price on the 2020 HE.

I really want to say go with the Heritage, but that 2019 is priced well. Also, if you intend to use rear entertainment like my family does, it makes sense.
