Default Good or bad deal?

Came across a pretty good deal I would say...

13 GS 350 AWD Luxury Package with 90k on it. Two owners with every single maintenance done at Lexus (looked up the VIN on the Lexus website).

Has the flaxen interior and asking price is $13,500 from a reputable Land Rover dealer. Supposedly the car was traded in and previous owner purchased a brand new Range Autobiography...

What do you guys think?

Sounds a bit low, can't find a 2013 GS350 for less than 16k at any mileage.

I would get it if I was in MI

Great deal! People ask that much for a 3gs. Plus lux and unique color interior. If you are not sure, have an independent shop look at it first.

If it's legit then that's a great deal... but that price seems suspiciously low.

Thanks guys for the input! I put down a deposit and will be picking it up sometime next week. Nothing wrong with the vehicle at all. It does have some scratches but most of it should buff out. $15k out the door with taxes, fees, registration, etc. 👍🏼

appreciate the input!

Sounds like a smoking deal, just make sure you run a carfax, go on the Lexus owners website and look at history, take it for a thorough test drive and absolutely have it inspected at a Lexus or Toyota dealership. Do not buy it unless you have it inspected. The price is suspiciously very very low, especially at a dealership. Look for salvage records or any signs it was in a flood or had any frame damage and make sure the transmission and engine are in good shape. Even if it needs a new paint job in certain areas or is not in the greatest condition it is still a steal and you could replace things and get parts painted for all the money you save. Do you have any pics or links to it?

I would 100% have it taken to a trusted mechanic or shop and have them look over the whole car. If it doesn't come with a carfax it is worth buying one yourself.

Sounds like a great deal but I would watch out for anything that they could be hiding. They easily could ask for thousands more for the car.
