    I am thinking about purchasing a 2001 Lexus LX 470 and trying to find out what needs to be done to it and how much it might cost. I pulled this information up from the Lexus Driver's Site. The LX 470 currently has 107,000 miles.

    P.S. Give me your honest answer and don't worry about pulling any punches.

    Help us understand. You have already bought the LX? Lexus service history shows location AL and new owner since 3/3/2017. Welcome to MUD
    Looks like the Toyota dealer did the CV boots and axle service.. I'm assuming the power steering issue in 2014 was either fix by an outside shop or was misdiagnosed. Very few Lexus or Toyota dealers would retail a 2001 LX/100 series unless it was pretty nice
