"We have owned this vehicle for over 12 years. with 138000. I keep up the maintinance. Recently had the timeing belt, water pump and radiator replaced. tires,struts, transmissin service, oil change,and brakes. We have had a bit of a problem with the emisson control system. All of these parts were simple and an external function. For a 15 year old car that is pretty good. We use it on long trips and never had any problems. Yes withuot a doubt I would buy another Lexus. This car is very comfortable and I keep it clean. A real luxury auto. Quiet and stable on the road"

"I bought this car from a fireman about a month ago who took great care of it, to use around town and on long trips to save miles on my BMW M3,to my surprise the car is very comfortable and elegant, even with the high mileage still runs and drives great, no engine or transmission issues, very dependable so far."

"This is the most reliable car I've ever owned. Low maintenance -just oil changes and tires. Very reliable as it has never failed to perform. She just keeps on moving. I kept her for my winter car, but ended up driving it more than a newer model that I own."

"All thou it's 17 years old, I've had it for 8 years now. I don't who the past owners but, I will very soon. Since buying this vehicle, I've replaced certain parts to my baby from a past poor maintenance program. Now, my vehicle is back on track. Changing oil every 3-5000 miles & having my mechanic check it thoroughly if any problems that will occur in the future. So far,so good. An excellent buy!"
