I have a 96 LS just turning 59k miles -- just purchased it and in pristine condition -- seems to have been very well taken care of.
I am sort of a semi-expert on cars (family used to own dealership years ago and I personally used to work on cars as a hobby)
and have owned many Toyotas as well as other brands -- most of the time servicing at a dealer is rediculously costly and unnecessary and I have my mechanic do it (he's unbelievable -- and very reasonable -- been working on my cars for 22 years)-- however:
I thought that because this was a major service I would call the Lexus dealership nearby just to find out what is recommended and how much. After I stopped laughing from sticker shock -- $785.00 for 60k service + $225.00 to change transmission fluid (not to mention $670.00 for rear pads and rotors) I called my guy --
he wants $225.00 for brakes and $200.00 for service -- seems reasonable to me!!!!!!!!
Any reason that I should go to the dealer that anyone can think of?????
Has anyone had any concerns with aftermarket parts with Lexus????
