What would you guys deem to be a good price for a 3yr old certified AWD model with about 36k miles? Is it worth leasing it? Probably only way I can afford to get into a flagship model.

So dumb. They could have just raised the overall service bill by $5 and no one would have even batted an eye. Well can't fault them for being transparent at least.

It will either be a catastrophic failure or a monumental success. Nothing in between. What's Lexus gonna do with their billion dollar CF loom if this tech is successful?

The 350 is not underpowered. Just less power than the competition. It's really more than anyone needs outside of track days. The 2L T would be adequate if Lexus did not prioritize efficiency over...

Sucks to hear. Just know that the '13 GS is a first model year car. As with any 1st model year car, chances are much higher running into issues. Best bet is probably the '14 GS.

My pay check is missing a few digits...maybe in 10yrs. I'll just wait for the "its an outdated engine since it has no turbo" people to throw cold water on me. Makes the next 10yrs go by faster.
