I'm Outta Here

Recommended Posts

Well I no longer own a Lexus IS200, after putting it on ebay I sold it to a cash buyer after 3 days. Which I think on the scheme of things I was really lucky.

I enjoyed owning the IS200 and the trouble free 3 years I had with it. But I was never ever impressed with my local dealer, enough said.

I now have a Honda Accord 2.2 cdti exec which to be honest IMHO is a brilliant car, granted it might not have the status of the Lexus but for the money there's a lot of car to be had. I would even go as far to say it is very similar in terms of the spec to the IS250 yet £6k cheaper (with the leather and satnav).

What I will say is that LOC is a brilliant website for sharing info on the Lexus range much much better than any other marque forum I've seen, try and find a Honda Owners website - what a joke.

Sorry you got rid.

The dealer, was it Lexus Chester? Is that the one near Cheshire Oaks (got I hate that place :D ). Are they not the best then? This is a bit worrying if so, if I got a Lexus I'd be a bit stuck for dealers living/working where I do. Lexus Bolton aren't supposed to be too clever either :huh:

Cheers for the feedback guys.

Gotta admit, never a lover of the Honda Accord in the past but this car is amazing!

By the way the guy who bought my IS200 was a cash buyer and had ahem, circa £8k in his jeans when he met me..... Friday was a scary day when we went to the bank....but when he drove back some 300 miles, he sent me a text.....now bearing in mind the car is 4 years old, but was really still in fantastic condition, 83k on the clock, fsh

His text read "Just got back, cars mint".....nuff said about the IS200 eh!
