A stock 2009 has the vvt and the oil cooler time bomb hoses. Check that they've been replaced. If not, and the vehicle is a great buy, do it immediately.

oil lines

I believe that the 2008 RX has the rubber VVT line on the back bank, next to the firewall. The front bank has a solid metal one. Lexus will replace the VVT line under the recall, I believe.

HTown, the mechanic filled the crankcase before he started it, that's why he was wearing that oil within a few seconds. The mechanic did the right thing and didn't contribute to the damage.
