  1. @Rich, I've been looking around and this caught my eye: https://usedcars.lexus.co.uk/en/used-lexus/Lexus/Rx-Estate/400h-33-SR-5dr-Auto-Rear-Sensors-s4cbs5l from this selection of other similarly priced RX400h as well as some RX450: https://usedcars.lexus.co.uk/en/used-lexus/lexus/rx?mkey=46-500017-200342&groupTrim=1&unitSystem=imperial&currency=GBP&useCustomModels=1&vehiclestatus=100||120||130&sort=price%3AASC&atDistancePos=46-502023-506765%3A1&limiter=dkey[46-502023-506765%3A10]&model=618||612||1478||1892&mcategory=all&zip=CM23&radius=80&manufacturer=31&max=8&view=list#result-tools-top Doing an MOT lookup on the gov site it's not had any issues at all besides a worn tyre. As this is on a Lexus dealers website I'm hoping it's likely to be a fairly safe bet. Do all used cars from Lexus dealers come with warranty and hybrid motors checked etc? If anyone has a moment to look over the links and voice an opinion that would be much appreciated? TIA
  2. Thanks Steve and Rich, good advice @Rich - that 400h looks good,although it’s last MOT through this up: Nearside Front Brake pad(s) wearing thin (1.1.13 (a) (ii)) Offside Front Brake pad(s) wearing thin (1.1.13 (a) (ii)) Nearside Rear Nail in tyre () Nearside Front Lower Suspension arm pin or bush worn but not resulting in excessive movement (5.3.4 (a) (i)) Offside Front Lower Suspension arm pin or bush worn but not resulting in excessive movement (5.3.4 (a) (i)) Offside Front Tyre worn close to legal limit/worn on edge wearing inner edge (5.2.3 (e)) so that looks kinda expensive to me, what do you think?
  3. Hi Steve, that’s good info and thank you for the welcome! So a 10 yr old RX450 with 100,000 - What kind of lifespan is expected on that if we assume I do everything right with services etc. I’ve heard that with the correct care and servicing etc these cars can go for 250,000 miles or more? With the hybrid health check is that something the dealer should be offering to show me or is it something I should organise independently by getting an expert in to check it in advance of buying? I would get a mech check prior to buying non-Lexus cars anyway but I wonder if there are any recommendations as to who should check a RX450 - is this something you would only trust an official Lexus dealership mechanic with or could I make do with an AA or RAC vehicle check prior to purchase? i will almost certainly take advantage of the offer to review some potential purchases, thanks once again 🙂
  4. Hi, I owned a Lexus IS 200 early into when they first came out around late 1990s I think it was, loved it. I now have £10000 budget (maybe a bit more) for a second car and would like an RX. I’m not really interested in the other models. Clearly it’s not a huge budget so I may be limited but what would anyone recommend in this instance and what should I avoid? What do I need to make sure of when buying an older used RX, corrosion? Engine problems? I’m in the UK! thanks in advance!
