The Lexus 90,000 mile check in this south central area is $900-$1000 but my rep told me that is not necessary. Bought the car with 47,700 miles and now have over 182,000 miles and it runs like a new car, ride is superb and has not cost me any money other than tires/batteries/windshield wipers. Speaking of wipers, I love Lexus windshield wipers for they are superb in the way they work and hold up. I have replaced the timing belt at the recommended 90,000 miles but not the water pump which keeps on ticking. Have driven it across the rockies on a 2200 mile (1 way) traveling trip and it was so smooth a ride and great going over the mountains. I do not think that my wife will ever let me sell this one. It will turn on a dime! One time a person's car was in my lane on a rural highway headed right for a head on collision. I turned the steering wheel so fast to the right that it hurt my wrist to do so. Then I had to whip it back straight after I had turned it an extremely fast 45 degree angle. My wife said did you realize that man was still in your lane as you passed him on the shoulder. I said no because I had to fight the car back up the shoulder to get from wrecking in a huge ditch. The car never attempted to turn over although I gave it all that I could to turn from straight ahead to go right as far and as fast as I could. Fourtunately, the shoulder of the highway was as wide as a highway lane which I had never seen one that wide.

I have read recently that some vehicles will vapor lock on days that are over 100 degrees and some recommend filling the gas tank more often to cool the fuel down that gets hot over the hot pavement and sometimes people pull off and let it cool a while to get it going againl
