Impending Lexus IS300H owner

Recommended Posts

Hello People,

Just thought I'd say Hi. Not yet a Lexus owner. But I do have a holding deposit on a 2018 IS300h F Sport at Lexus Cardiff. Just a slight hurdle of them not wanting to accept my trade in vehicle which is a 2009 Honda Accord Tourer EX GT 2.2 Diesel Auto because it doesn't have much MOT left (1 month).

I have taken the car for an early MOT and it failed. But only on a headlight levelling device fault. Trouble is that could be a potential £300 bill. And I'd rather not spend that on car I'm not keeping.

If any of you would have any ideas on my next course of action I'd be interested to read them. ☺️

you're between a rock and a hard place...

I understand your reluctance to spend cash on a car you have already decided is history but I suspect the hit you will take on any resale value, trade or otherwise, will be more than the cost of fixing the fault.

Looks like my delaler has had a change of heart and decided to take my part exchange anyway. Planned delivery date is this Friday.

Very nice. I think if/when I get a mk3 it'll probably be black.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
