Only parts i had to change was the thermostat, brakes and discs!

My new recent lexus iv bought has 63k and drives the same as my old one..

my w reg se has got 149 thousand on the clock and its just got through its m.o.t. with only needing a lower ball joint which cost me £125 in total(mot , ball joint and labour) , there were no advisories and the cynical mechanic was amazed , he said my lexus has changed his mind about them completely and it was lovely to drive , the emissions were spot on which what concerned me the most especially as i fitted a k&n panel filter . :winky:

My is200 had 128,000 on when I sold it in 20190 ,it was an 02 plate which had 8000 on when I bought it , apart from servicing n tyres nothing at all went wrong in 120000 miles,it drove like new when I sold it !

i also have a Toyota hi ace van which I've owned for 10 years that's got 260,000 on it now and still going strong,it's a Y plate and goes through MOTs with minimal bits ,I had to get a new number plate and bulb to get it through the last one !

Mines on 166,000 miles on a 2002 plate. I've only had it a few weeks but it drives and runs like a new car. There's a few age related bumps on the body work but the paint is in good condition and the interior is nice too. I'm really happy with it.

Min's on 124k and I've just had the cam belt replaced (2nd time of doing) as they are @ 60k intervals.  The old one looked perfect!.  The auxillary belts were also replaced as they were original and the only one that was a bit cracked was the alternator belt, which I thought was the case as I had a sqeak under load.  Running perfectly, engine and box are like new.  In all the 124k it's never needed anything replacing under the bonnet apart from normal service items.

 

But the bloody wheels need refurbing (again).  Previous ones were from Lexus but I'm not going there again as they only last about 18 months before showing major signs of corrosion.  So currently looking for somewhere in Essex that will do a good job with minimal fuss.

Mines a 2002 IS200 Sport and has 162,000 miles on it,

Last year had to have a new radiator which had done 150,000 miles on the original rad, over heated 6 times and is still running a year later. These engines are bullet proof.

Had to have cambelt / water pump and aux belt change this year, along with lower ball joints as a precaution due to them starting to knock. 160,000 miles on original ball joints is pushing it.

But I've also had years of trouble free motoring from the car. This was just routine maintenance.

I’ve got 142k on mine, I changed the rad at 135k as it had a slight weep on the top left. Whilst I was in there I also changed the water pump but on inspection the old one was fine - bearings were nice and smooth with no play. I also changed the ancillary belts at the same time. As said, these engines really are built to last.
