Mileage Concern

I am interested in buying a 2007 Lexus is250 AWD that has 146,000 miles on it. It is a very fair price. The test drive showed no problems with the car. The dealership also said they would throw new tires on it if I purchased the car. I am just concerned with the mileage. Anyone have an input?

My concerns would be with carbon deposits on intake valves due to IS250 being only direct-injected. Did it have a cleaning performed?
Personally, I would opt for IS350 as it has both port and direct injection, but it may be price-prohibitive, depending on the budget.
