Longer post in LS400 forum - the IS has replaced it after 16 years of ownership - very early days but lovely car.

2014 Luxury model 28k miles purchased from Lexus Derby who were seamless in providing superb service.

Hi Nick and welcome to the IS forum

good looking car you have ,but there again i dont think there's

a colour in the IS range that the car doesn't look good wearing

i noticed in your 1st picture your not the only lexus owner

with your neighbour having an RX450h .

Thanks - the ‘neighbour’ is my wife and that’s her RX - great car and I almost bought one for myself when the LS died but didn’t want two of the same cars in the household. I have also owned two ISFs alongside the LS so the replacement was always going to be a Lexus!

Welcome Nick to this corner of the forum!

Those black wheels. Are they Lexus manufactured, or after market?

Thanks- no idea - I know it sounds bad but I was in such a rush to replace the LS and was mega busy with family and work commitments I have done very little in terms of the usual checks and questions i would normally ask, I am just trusting Lexus Derby. I did snap up the vehicle very quickly and they told me that they have had tons of enquires about it but that could just be sales talk. I did want something that if I don’t want to keep when I have had more time to think about things that I could move on relatively easily and I think the IS fits that category- that said, like the LS it will probably be a long term ownership proposition.

    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
