#70 of 592 Finally a Lexus owner!
Apr 07, 2004 (2:45 pm)
Well I finally decided to take the plunge. I just purchased my first Lexus, a 1999 Black Onyx over tan LS 400 with 93,227 miles in show room condition. This was a one owner vehicle with every scheduled maintenance done, even the 90K.
This car is amazing! I finally see what everybody means when they say "Lexus quality". I have done a months worth of research on this vehicle and it's seems I can get another 1-200K out of it - as long as I treat her right?
I look forward to leering more about this awesome automobile.

I have been offered a gold '01 LS430 with Navigation, Mark Levinson, 51,000 miles for $37K - it is a certified pre-owned vehicle. Is this a good deal?

I follow the prices pretty closely...It is a very good deal...I am assuming since you said it is certified that you are getting it from a dealer.

Take it - just try to get them to extend the warranty if you want to hold long-term. You'll love the sport suspension and this 2004 is a dream car. It handles great with the sport as well. The car looks great in black. Will they lease it to you? I'm telling you - the 2007 LS is something every LS owner will want - so you may want to get yourself set for it. On the otherhand in 2007 this car will be worth in the high 30's so it'll cost you about $14k for 30-40 months of driving a sport LS. Anyway - that's how I'd look at this. Only issue I'd have is why is it available?
Let us know here or the LS board what you do.
#76 of 592 Purchasing a Lexus

Forget about what you think is the "Best" deal, and focus on a "Fair" deal for both you and the dealer. Lexus is the finest automobile in the world and a tremendous value if purchased for MSRP. Let the Sales Associate make a fair living and quit being so cheap. You didn't get to the point of buying high-line automobiles without making a profit!!!

Sqeeze for the best price you can...The salesman and dealership are professionals and well able to take care of their own profits....

I had a great experience with Countywide Lexus in Hollywood Florida. The salesmen was Wayne Summer. I met over the internet with their great price and then I became a repeat customer because of good service and price. I priced all over. They were by far the cheapest.

Thanks guys, went and looked it over yesterday in heavy downpour. Not exactly what I was thinking of in ride quality, fairly rough. Not sure it was tires, suspension, or normal ride as I didn't take time to check tire pressures in the rain. Think I am going to hold for now as he will have another one coming in with about the same miles without Sport soon that is Blk/Blk. That Ivory interior is not the best looking for me.
