Yes, super hard to find with low miles. I think a lot of these Japanese cars are owned by suburban commuters.
These are just more than I want to spend, especially on something this old. You can get a really nice 07-11 Lexus GS for less than one of these.
Maybe if it were something like a fun car you wouldn’t put a lot of miles on, but not a daily driver. What do you even do buying something like that? With a newer car, you try to make a big down payment so it’s paid off fast or keeps payments low. With this it’s already got some age on it, you don’t want to be still paying for it when it’s 20 years old. Do you make a big down payment so it gets paid off fast, but then you won’t have a lot of cash on hand to fix anything on it? Lexus or not, it’s old and will need something.
The first one posted was a smoking deal, it was only ten years old and you can have it paid off before it even has 100k on it.
That’s just where I’m at in regards to buying old cars, I’d rather pay cash, or just take a loan out on something newer. The GX470 falls into that “I don’t know about this” range. I was looking at Tacomas a few years ago and thought the same thing. I’m just not comfortable owing money on something that old.
