Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Hello to all, 

I'm looking to buy a Lexus 460 with a solid service history.   

I have a budget of £9k cash and was hoping someone here might be interested. 

I have previously owned a GS450h 2013 and would like to return to Lexus with a V8 in the 460. 

Thanks

I think the 460s are slightly disadvantaged because of the higher road tax they attract and they do come up more often compared to the 400s/430s - I've seen a couple of looked after cars in the the past couple of months - I think its just a case of keeping on eye on all the channels . . . .

Wasn`t JP thinking of moving his LS600h on a few months ago?

I know it`s not a 460, but...............................

Thanks for the replies.  

Can i ask is it possible to buy an older Lexus such as a 460 and then have Lexus put their warranty on it, if so what would the cost of a warranty be for 12 months for instance? 

Also how would i spot a faulty steering rack, as i understand these can result in a large bill?

Car cannot be more than 10 yars old James and have covered less than 140,000 miles.

Where are you located ?

James, If you search the Forum for 'VGRS issues' you will see a reply that I wrote on this subject. Basically, I had the problem but it was a computer glitch and no problem.  

I've owned my 460 for 8 years/70,000 miles and it is my daily runner. I owned a 400 for 15 years before that and the 460 has been every bit as trouble-free as the 400.

Hello James.

I am so glad you didn't decide this in October last year.

I decided to change from an LS400 with 265000 miles on it to an LS460.

I found one in the last week of October for £8950 with a full service history, most of it from Lexus, with only 42000 miles on it.

I am really happy with it, although I was really quite sad when I finally sold the LS400 and I watched someone else drive away in the car I had owned and loved for the last 12 years.

Just to clarify...

No, I don't want to sell it.

 

Steve.

It is a sterling example but that is reflected in the price the mileage is low at 70k but the 460 has a bad reputation for expensive front end replacement arms of which there are four at something in the region of £350 each and a complete strip of the whole front end to replace.There are other considerations as well this car as had four owners and the original owner who put a private plate on it did'nt keep it long. There are at least two owners on this forum who have regretted buying one of these after owning both ls400's and LS430's.

Most of the reviews of this model were a little downbeat and that is reflected in sales   volume they never really took off.

I advise a reasonably long test drive before buying one .

With respect, Phil, not a very balanced post. There are more than two owners on this forum who do NOT regret buying a 460.......and, in my case, after owning a 400 for 15 years.

That is a lovely car with a comprehensive history,however it's still a twelve year old one and the price is bad comedy, with a three grand premium added you really have to want it.

Fair comment Brian and I have to be honest it is a better looking car than the 400 but as the saying goes" Looks ar'nt everything."
