I just found out yesterday that the 2008 IS350 I've been negotiating for with the dealer already had the valve springs recall done. Since I'm no car expert and never had the chance to drive an IS350 before so can't tell if the car has loss any power, should I still proceed with the purchase? I test drove the car and thought it felt okay, although the pedal was a bit shaky but that might be due to the worn out front tires...?
Also, there's a thread on CL stating that the community finds Westside Lexus one of the best in Houston for this recall and it was actually serviced there early last month before being traded in 300 miles later to this dealership.
The other thing I would like to have cleared up is whether they actually open up the engine or use a special tool to replace the springs w/o needing to do so?
Anything I could look for when I go out and test drive again this weekend that might point to inadequate work on the springs or even engine damage? I'm also in no hurry to purchase and can wait a month or two for other IS350s become available.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to any input!
