There is better fuel economy rated at 21mpg combined for the 6-speed, whereas the 5-speed provided 20mpg combined.

Nothing spectacular, but it still helps in the long term.
I didn't know that. Thanks

Yeah that doesn't matter to her. 1 or 2 miles isn't a big deal.

One thing to have her check is number of keys. I would insist on 2 master keys.
Sweet

I'll make sure there is two master keys.

I'll be dropping my next door off tonight to pick it up. After going back and forward they only took $1,500 off so shes paying $27,500.

I'm just wondering if you guys think its a fair price, because she can still cancel the sale. Thanks

Thats ridiculously low mileage for a 10 year car. I think you got a great deal on it.

Thanks for all the feedback guys.

She stopped by after work and told me the car won't be ready unit Wednesday. Her salesperson is out sick so and the financing process is still on going.

She may want to chirp eck into www.penfed.com for finance rates. I financed my last Lexus purchase with them at 0.49%.

They have excellent rates this month.

Thanks, I think she went with a credit union. From what I understand everything is done. Just waiting for the dealer to finish inspecting and reconditioning anything that needs to be done.

VH_Supra26, you can get work done at Toyota. I also own an Acura MDX and get the work done at the Honda dealer. Costs are reasonable.

I bought my 2007 with 13.200 miles for $33,000

SCarolina, thank you for the info.

I think she is going to buy an extended warranty from Lexus. The 100k miles or 6 year package.
