Sorry for creating the duplicate thread, guess I didn't search hard enough. Glad to see it's already on the registry.

I had been seriously interested in the car, but when I reached out I was informed the car hadn’t had a service since 2012, no fluids changed, original tires etc., While I appreciate the honesty, I can’t imagine what years worth of starting and stopping, hauling to shows and cold showroom revs has done to a car on 6 year old original fluids.. He’ll I don’t even think the fuel has been changed!.. such a shame a special car like this has been so neglected. Who knows the issues it may have and is now not covered under warranty. To make matters worse they wouldn’t even do a full service and fluid change on the car, or any kind of warranty if I was to buy it!

Wow! That is absurd how they don't take care of the maintenance of such an incredible car. Such a waste.

That's just shameful. At this point, the engine oil may well have broken down, providing minimal protection - not to mention possibility of contaminants.

NEGLECT is right. Very sad to see. I love me some Lexus but I assume this car is dealer owned as it travels to shows, they want to abuse it on the show circuit but won't even properly maintain it, wow.
