Default Looking to Purchase 2010 ES350 - Need Advice

Hello Lexus Community,

Fist off, I am semi-new to the forums and fairly new to Lexus. I am reaching out to the community for advice and recommendations.

My first Lexus I owned was a 1998 SC400 when I was in the military (over 10+ years ago). I am looking to purchase my second Lexus; used, but new to me!

I am looking at a 2010 Lexus ES350 with 101,000 miles. The car has had two owners and has been serviced at the original dealer for all 100,000 miles. The car was sold to the second owner as a CPO.

The vehicle looks great cosmetically and is feels strong. I reviewed all the maintanence records. There were a few things replaced, but not sure if it is something to worry about.

The following sevice was performed:

I would like some advice and your thoughts on this vehicle. Should I be worried about it having 101,000 miles? Also, should I be worried about the above maintenance that was performed?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read.

Stay away from this car. I think they drove it without coolant in it and maybe the engine overheated.

I agree. There are a lot of 2010 ES350's out there and depending on your budget, plenty with less than 101k on them.

Do you say that because they used the word stalled in the maintenance note? Just curious how you came to that conclusion.

To the OP, I think you'll love an ES (not necessarily this one). I've owned 3 and they are fantastic especially in terms of the balance of power and mpg.

Probably it stalled while the driver was driving it and that means business.

Thanks for the info everyone.

By the way, do you know if the 2013 LED strip head lights will fit on a 2010?
