'01, currently @ 114,xxx miles, still using mobil 1 5w-30, yet no leak and still running strong~ Replaced battery once, resurfaced front rotors, replaced pads once as well and haven't had any major issues. All I need to work on is getting t-belt, water pump, & serpentine belt replaced soon.:pissed:

2001, 193xxx KM, doing 600KM/week :) She's scheduled for a tune up next week :p
I've got a question tho... I bought the car at 174000KM, and the scheduled mileage for timing belt change is 152000... I don't know if the previous owner changed it (no records at Lexus), and I haven't changed it since I've had it, so I dunno... since it's already been 40000+ KM's since it was supposed to be changed and I have no problems, is it safe to assume that it was changed already? When I took off the timing belt cover I saw some markings on the cams... so that could be a good sign?? And how about the water pump and seals? Any urgency to change those?

When the Lexus dealer changed mine the tech put a sticker on the timing belt cover with the date and mileage of the change. If you don't have that then you might want to assume it never happened. I suppose it could have been done by a 3rd party or maybe that dealer just doesn't use a sticker, but for something like this you'd think they would note it somehow. It is too expensive and involved to want someone to repeat without good cause.

2001 lsd auto 156,966 on the clock. Sounds and drives like new. Mobil 1 every 5k. Rotate tires to keep what is left of any set I buy from wearing any quicker than they should.Second set of rotors and I think 4th set of pads. T-Belt and major service done at 89,000 and will do another major service with plugs @160K.
CE light went on for the first time in its history last week and I change B2S2 02sensor. That my friends is it.
I love this car.

'01 w/180K+. Having 2nd timing belt replaced today actually along with Water Pump, Plugs, Thermostat, Battery, PCV valve and having the fuel injection service done.

Previously had to have my hood latch system replaced (rusted out due to cracked radiator around 85K - also caused rust spot to form underneath hood lip; repaired with rust converter and DIY paint from PaintScratch.com).
