2008 Lexus LS600hL (daily driver) and a leased Nissan Leaf (wife's around town car). I'm a solid Lexus convert, but the wife still loves not having to go to the gas station (ever)...

I own a 2008 LS600hL, and I can vouch for the vault-like ride and unparallelled quality built into this "tank." The car is not "sporty" in the traditional sense, but can certainly generate serene...

I love the way you put it, "aged gracefully..." That's exactly how I feel about my "new to me" 2008 LS600hL! No one who rides in my car can believe it's 6 years old. I'd definitely take an older,...

Make a friend in one of those states who is willing to let you use their address to have the warranty paperwork mailed to. That's all Troy needs (a MA address) to make it happen. Perhaps one of the...

From my experience, if the car checks out service-wise and has not been involved in an accident, anything under $45K would probably be a reasonable deal (especially if the car is a CPO from a Lexus...

I believe you're correct, in general. My Lexus dealer had to call the CPO guys to ask them to cover this specific repair, since my car's Powertrain Warranty had just expired this past April. My...

Yeah, I've been admiring that particular LS600hL on Cars.com for a while. I think the price is slightly too high, given the miles, but I do love the unique color scheme. The 2010 comes with a nicer...

I had a 2011 LS460 AWD prior to my current 2008 LS600hL. My LS460 did not have the Air Suspension, and my LS600 does. To be perfectly honest, I found the ride in the non-air-suspension car to be...

Then yes, I think $40K is a very fair price for the car (assuming a clean CarFax/vehicle history and with regular, documented Lexus service). KBB shows a value of around $46K for a CPO 2011 with 48K...

Is this one at a Lexus dealer? Does it come with a CPO Lexus warranty? That adds some value to the deal. If not, you can still purchase the Lexus Platinum plan, since the car is still under the...
