Guy turns out to be a dealer just looking to rip someone off. It's a great price but needs a lot of work. Multiple people have passed on it after PPI. Heads up yall.

How did you pull those records? Carfax? Or did you go to the lexus dealer directly?
Lexus Service History | Lexus Drivers Register for a free account and then add the VIN and you can see anytime it's been seen at a Lexus dealership. Not has helpful as a Carfax, but helpful for something that is free. Also sometimes Carfax doesn't have the detailed information the Lexus Driver's site has, so running both is the way to go.

You should post the VIN in this thread as a separate item so if you google the VIN it pops up.
Good idea. I edited the first post with the VIN.

There’s nothing wrong with him posting it for sale for the potential for profit . It’s really a decent price for overpriced California. Y’all idiots pay to much for everything and vote socialist lol . I’ve been a Toyota and Lexus service advisor for over 10 years this just looks like basic service recommendations based on mileage. The only thing that I would consider major would be the rack and pinion so I don’t understand why this was posted. I can assure you that 90% of vehicles posted anywhere are in need of some form of maintenance.


A radiator and a rack and pinion are not maintenance items. I did not have time so I recently dropped my 404,000 mile Honda Accord off for a dealer oil change. The recommended list is shorter that the 100 that is the topic of this discussion. It was basically the standard cabin air filter and engine air filter. Even though both are recent. Work up an estimate based on price and you will see why it is for sale. A dealer estimate for repairs of probably 50% of the asking price of the 100. The brakes and timing belt being ignored both show me neglect. I come from a truck fleet background for the last 30 years.
