I paid around 60 for an 09 with 47K miles in 2011 and am a happy camper.

Had an 03 - great car, but not in snow, particularly in the climate you describe (in my opinion). Tried snow tires as well - Traded for an LX.

Mint (if that is what it is) 430's are valuable. Does the vehicle have a documented service history (preferably at a Lexus Dealer)? CarFax clean? No body repairs? 30K and 60K major services done? ...

I get 15+ around town - 18 or 19 on the Hwy if I keep the speed under 80. I use premium and have access to ethanol free fuel much of the time.
