I am not sure where you are but if in the US get a carfax report. Also, ask for service records and if possible, have your mechanic check it out. That is what I would do if I was buying a used car. You don't want to get stuck with a lemon.

That is quite a bit of miles, but it is a lexus (toyota) so it should last at LEAST another 50k.















and the reason why its so cheap is the mileage and it is a luxury car, and it is very common for a luxury car to be around this price at this age. So it shouldnt have any major problems, its just the fact that luxury cars depreciate fast.































(Ex: 2013 range rover: $60,000















2000 range rover $5,000)
