I bought my Lexus used in December 2013 with ~21K miles. It runs like a dream! The only thing I've had any problem with is that recently I got condensation in the driver-side headlight assembly. I took it to the dealership and they discovered it had about a bottle's worth of water in the bottom! When dried it out, the LED strip died (probably because all the water was keeping the connection closed) and there was corrosion on the PCB connections (see pic). They quoted me ~$1700 for a replacement, so I drove around without a functioning LED strip for awhile until my daughter and I figured we could replace the headlight assembly ourselves with an aftermarket for ~$400 (that's her in the pic). But now when I turn the car on, it runs its diagnostics and then I get a "Check headlight system" error along with the red warning light. Any way to turn that off?
