If you are under 150k mlies Lexus covers the oil lines. As for the rest, how many times have Ford or GM covered an 8 year old vehicle for anything outside of a Federally mandated recall?

I'd buy it. That's identical to mine except mine had 166k on it when I bought it. To this day I still have to occasionally glance at the tach to make sure the engine is still running. That's very low...

Actually I had this issue on my 2000 ES300, it was gold. Well cared for, the paint was fine everywhere except the mirror housings. On mine it was mainly the mounts more so than the mirrors themselves.

That code has nothing to do with the gas cap, that's a bank 1 cat efficiency code. In all likelihood probably an O2 sensor getting old and slow to respond. Clear it out and drive the car. If it comes...

I have 171k miles on my RX350 and it's very quiet. To the point that I find myself checking the tach sometimes to make sure the engine is still running.
