Default Thinking about a 95 ls but what should i do .....

I went and looked at a 95 LS with 104,000 miles on it the price 13965, i was thinking that was reasonable, but i am trading in my acura so he lowered the price to 12900, well i went home and did some research(thats how i found ya'll) and the retail vaule should only be 11800 for a car in good condition and the car is in good condition for what i could see i never test drove it yet cause i had my son with me at the time, but get this i ran carfax and the car has a salavage /junk title what kinda **** is that. I like the car but i don't know what to do i am getting a 2 year unlimited mile warratny for the LS. What price is fair for a car that says it it has a salvage title i was thinking 7000 because trade vaule on that car is like 6000 in good condition. Also he never told me it had a salavage title but he did say his boss hit a deer but it left a little dent to the frotn fender they fixed that you can't even tell, The car wrecked in colorado back in 1999 and now the car is in PA i don't know if it even has a clean but i am assuming it does. I would think h would of told me and i am buying tis car form a dealership also. sorry so long but i wanted to give ya'll something to work with .Please Help. Thanks and great Site.

Congrats on your research and that you discovered this before hand. The fact the seller did not disclose this initially would have me on the run. There are plenty of good ones around that messing with unknown's isn't worth it. IMO

Default Welcome to the forums...

I think the $13,965 price tag is a bit high for a '95 IMO, but that might be due to the 2 year unlimited mile warranty. Personally, I'd be skeptical that the car has a salvage title and top of that, from what you're saying it seems the salesman is a 'lil shady in not mentioning the salvage title. I'd steer clear of that particular LS and go searching for another one with a clean title. You might want to consider buying from a private seller...just be sure that it's been maintained regularly and that they have all the paper work to prove that all the required maintanence has been completed.

I would agree with both BR1AN & RA40. In addition, I have a 95 LS400 and it's a great car, but since this was the year that Lexus did some redesigning of interior and exterior there are some minor annoying problems that I run into from time to time that just don't exist in the later models. (LS400's from 96-98) So you can definitely find a just as nice, or nicer, LS in the same price range, but you'll just have to look around for it.

Yep, no doubt in steering clear of that one.
