IS-F reliability?

hey folks..

I'm in the market for an IS-F..

i would like to know how these are down the road.. 50k+ miles.. any known problems i should aware of?

I'm looking between the 08-10 IS-F's...

what's the reasonable price for an used one? the ones i saw on the ads goes between $35k-$40k..

or should i opt for an cpo one instead?

thanks.

go to ClubLexus for is-f related stuff..oh and these cars seem to be bullet proof! Only issue to be careful of with the earlier models is the water pump has leaked on some of them

No issues or anything failing as I had owned '08 IS350 and currently own '11 IS350. IS-F should be the same. Considering it has very firm tight suspension with low profile tires I would have mechanic check shocks, steering system, and wheels for misalignments and / or broken parts. Damn potholes are everywhere it's unreal....

I hoped they were as good as the IS300. mine has never had an issue. usually with performance cars they arent as good but this seems to be a good outcome
