My lexus is going back 😔

Recommended Posts

So I've had my Lexus just over a week.  Absolutely love it.  Its 2007 plate.  Took it to my mechanic who gave it the once over and we have a big problem.   The head gasket is on its way out.  A very expensive job I don't have the money to repair (and it's not guaranteed as may have already caused further damage)  

 

I'm so gutted as I love everything about it.  The garage where I bought it from have offered a full refund at the weekend once the owner back from Spain.  So I'm back to square 1 with a £1500 budget to sort something else out.

Oh no!

Sad news indeed. Hope you get the refund alright and that you find something else Shelley.

That is bad news. I hope you get your money back. And I hope you can find another Lexus.

Got my refund with an extra £50 for the inconvenience.  Just need to look for something else now.

Result! Good for them and you.

Was it an IS 200 then? By the year I assume a diesel?

    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
