"I'm only selling because I need an SUV to pull my boat and travel in. My Lexus is a car that was so great I didn't think I'd ever sell it. Has all the amenities Lexus offers. Its a beautiful White, Plat. Series. New battery, like new tires, new exhaust. Great gas mileage and 395 Ponys. Back seat almost never sat in. Super clean. Most of the miles are highway. No dents, a few tiny tiny chips on the front of hood. Power seats , seat warmers, auto everything. This is a car that could easily go 350,000 miles or more. I want $8500, firm. It was a $60,000 car new."

"My platinum series has less than 65000 miles and has been garaged most of its life. People stop me coming out of parking garages and ask to buy it ALL the time. No way... Lexus rules!!! It's a shimmering GOLD color and lives up to it."

"The paint is great except for some pitting on the hood. 70 percent of the mileage was highway driving. The interior is perfect . The car was always maintained be the Lexus dealership in Palm Beach. The car is great. The only reason for this sale is we have three cars and a two car garage."

""Butterfly" is the name I've given this car, with excellent workmanship, great comfort, power, good looks and drivability. Repairs have been minimal over 264,000 miles. I'm certain it will soar right past 300,000 miles."

Cons: "Expensive replacement parts"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought this car pre-owned at 50,000 miles 16 years ago. It has never stranded me, has no rattles and performs like a V8 should - best car ever made. I have no plans to sell it even though my kids are telling me to buy a new car which I could easily afford. Why should I?I love it and it loves me."
