I am looking to purchase 2015 GS350 F sport with 23K miles on it. The GS has clean title without any accidents or damages to the car. The color is grey with red interior and the seller is willing to sell the car for $32K before taxes. Is this great deal? Thanks in advance..

Its a good deal since the mileage is low. You should also have a few months left on the original 4yr/50k warranty. However, does it need brakes/tires/rotors or any reconditioning at all? Those can really add up on the F-Sport model.

I think you can get a Certified 2015 GS F-Sport for under $30k with maybe around 30k-40k miles which will likely have been reconditioned and include 2yrs of additional warranty.

Thanks guys. I decided to get a L certified GS350 since it has the 2 year additional warranty. Is there anything I should look out for? I used to have 06 GS300 (sold it due to carbon buildup issue) and 11 GS350 which I loved!!!!

The '11 GS is a great car - handsome and bulletproof.

For the 4GS, besides the pricey wear/tear things like brakes, rotors, tires, look for any dents on the aluminum trim (TSB on that) and any discoloration or issues with the seats.

Some folks have had issues with sunroof noise with the sunroof closed but the sunroof shade open (fixed by simply replacing the seal around the sunroof). Keep an eye out for any suspension related issues like leaking shocks as some '13 F-sport models had issues.

Not much to look out for as the 4GS is reliable and most issues would have been addressed as part of the Certification - if not, absolutely insist on it before buying.
