Hey neighbor, are you trading in your 2003 TLC? That 4-wheel height control is a carry over from the LX470, and Lexus has been using it for a number of years. I haven't heard of any problems w/it, but you can bet it's expensive if it ever breaks! Saw 2 FJ Cruisers (blue & yellow) over Mike Erdman Toyota today. I'd probably get one but need a larger vehicle for my photography biz. That's the number one reason I want to move up from a 4Runner to a Land Cruiser.

I was at Mike Erdman on Tuesday , had the TLC detailed . I would rather sell it than Trade-in.
James my Email address is in my profile, lets get in touch.
I am actually looking for a good home for the TLC. BTW what is the name of your photography business ??
My TLC has always been treated with TLC.
Thanks for the info.
#4964 of 5282 Premium gas?
May 12, 2006 (4:30 pm)
Ive seen different things reporting that LC's require premium gas. Is this correct? If so, does anyone run regular without problems?

I got a 2003 TLC bought brand new with 6 miles. Since day one the only gas I have used is 87 Octane better known as regular gas.
No Problemo at all.

My handbook says 87 Octane.....so go with the handbook. Hell - my BMW's handbook says premium is required but I use 89 and its no problem.....no pinking or power drop-off.

Dealers sure like to price them like new cars!
A similar question was asked in a recent Letters to the Editors.
"There is a gray area when assessing the value of a "demo." It has not been registered so the dealership will want to tell you that it is a new car. However, there is wear and tear on the vehicle, as well as 6,500 miles. You have not included the year of the car. If we have it in our Used Car TMV, evaluate it accordingly. If not, evaluate the car as new, then subtract a certain amount per mile, say 15 cents. Also, deduct some money for wear and tear. Deduct these figures from the TMV new price, not from the dealer's asking price."

Hi Steve ,
I placed the same post in the Lexus section, which is what I am looking for, the LX470, 2006. This particular vehicle has about 2400 miles , MSRP $68500.00 appx. discount of $6000.00.
I am uneasy about the word Demo/Used. All vehicles need a breaking period.
This particular dealership is know for a very little flexibility in prices.
We are doing lots of shopping around. In Florida Lexus dealers are few.
If I were in a better health I would try to sell the two vehicles that will be trade-in instead ( 2003 Land Cruiser and 2005 Honda Odyssey ).
I am going read Letters to the Editors.
