Looking at a pretty darn clean, ‘13 base 250 AWD. 75K mikes for $14K. Maybe not a smokin deal, but fair I think.

This would be my first V6 Lexus and just curious what are some of the basics with this car, particularly maintenance?

- Any concerns or certain items that are a must check on this year?

- Specific maintenance items....
—timing belts (or is it no maintenance chains)?
—gear oil/service for the front transaxle or anything like that?
—sealed tranny or serviceable?
—Good stock replacement shock brand? Bilstein does not have a listing for the car :(

Those were the big ones off the top of my head, but I welcome any tips for the car. Thanks guys.

I just got 2011 for 5600. For that price make sure you check to see if the transmission was serviced. Lexus says it is sealed but Toyota will service them. you will need change differential & trans if it has not been done
