Default Should I buy this IS250?

I'm not the very knowledgable with cars, so I'm wondering if you guys can help out? I've been looking at 2006 IS250's to buy. I found one that I'm considering and I got the carfax for it. I'm wondering if you guys think this car is pretty legit and safe to buy? The guy listed it at $15,000, but I was able to negotiate it down to $13,800.

It's an 06 lexus is250 with premium package w/ navigation, 106,000 miles, clean title.

It would be so much appreciated if you guys can help. Thanks.

Car fax is here: http://www.pdfhost.net/index.php?Act...7e239cdc064b67

I guess the questions is more ... what's your budget range?

Sounds like your looking for something under $15k

Don't worry about the mileage unless you want to put another 75-100k on it, these cars last forever. BUT check the background of any is250 to see if it's had any carbon build up dealt with at the dealership (or anywhere) but that is the only real concern with some is250's.

@chan My budget is $15k and under. I'm assuming around $14k is avg for 95-110k miles.

Unless you guys got other car suggestions for that budget?

@heyarms, what would the service be listed as if it has been serviced for carbon build up?
