I bought the car when it was 10 years old. Engine never gave me any problems. I was surprised it took me out of town fine. Thinking back now, all day driving doing security work (100's of miles). Especially for an old car. But I bought it from a dealership who maintained and repaired vehicle (assuming it did). So unfair criticism. I wasn't the first owner so I shouldn't speak about its dependability. Previous owners say alot. However owner doesn't say dependability, exmination and what's reality says its dependability. Maybe it was repaired during the time before me. Oil stains were in the bottom. Probable from leaking hoses. I common thing in any car. Suspension was suspectable. A dangerous car in the rain. It skids. So very dangerous in the rain. Safe (6.0) in crash due to heavy chiseled metal. Personally, I never felt comfortable driving the car. One of the major reason is because it was 10 years, 135K miles. Brakes had alot of problems. My mother crashed the car. Tires were changed when they didn't need to be. Alignment was done. Light's kept on blowing out. I didn't know the History. I wasn't a mechanic. So when I opened the hood I didn't see anything. When I test drove the vehicle I didn't feel anything. I already knew about car problems, my father fixes his truck all the time. Basically I made a risky choice. A desperate one because it was the only place that would finance me. Compared to other cars, to me the exterior design was sharp and bright. Interior was clean and sharp. I had an eye for this. I heard Lexus put "alota time" in designing the car. Kudo's for the hard work.
The reason why I wouldn't recommend this vehicle to a friend because its 2014. The vehicle is a 1990. So it would be a 24 year old vehicle.
My recommendation is eliminate from buying a car you don't know because its expensive and too complicating to deal with. Just keep your car and drive. A car isn't a buying and selling thing because its like open heart surgery. You don't know the things people will dump into it. Especially when its an engineering mess.
