I have for sale a beautiful, 3 owner lexus LS 430 Ultra luxury sedan with all the options.
This car came from Texas around 2 years ago, bought from the original owner, a lady in her mid 50's, and was cared for by her son which was a mechanic at Park Place Lexus. All of the major maintenance was completed there, along with the 100k service and again at the 125k service suggested by Lexus. The following owner brought the Lexus to Wichita and continued to take good care of the car for about a year when he decided he was needing an SUV rather than this beautiful luxury sedan. This is where I took over. As mentioned, all of the service was completed prior to me owning the car so there wasn't much for me to do other than change the oil and keep the car clean.

This car never did me wrong, even made it through the snow storm with no issues of getting stuck. However, there is an issue with the oil control valves around this mileage, they like to get stuck. I believe it had something to do with the harsh climate and me driving in it but this is no longer an issue as I have replaced both valves with brand new Toyota/Lexus valves and its running as it did from day one. As of Saturday July 13, new tires and alignment have been done.

The car comes with many options, if you are unfamiliar with the ultra luxury package here are some of the features:
Radar guided cruise control
Headlight squirters
Auto adjusting headlights with HID
Suede headliner complete with a mini sun shade for the gap by rear view mirror
Auto adjusting rear view
Power folding and heated side mirrors
Oscillating air vents
Mark levinson stereo system with navigation and 6-disc changer
Telescoping tilt steering wheel
Heated and cooled front seats
Heated, vibrating, and reclining rear seats
Power sun shade for rear glass
Sun shades for rear seat passengers
Auto closing door (no need to slam these doors, they suck right in)
Air bag suspension with sport mode and height adjustment
The subwoofer was replaced with a brand new piece and the passenger front speaker was replaced before the sale of the second owner.

This is a long read, but this should tell you, you are buying a car that has been well taken care of, give you a peace of mind, you aren't buying junk.

The car has 148,000 miles, which as you know is barely broke in for a Toyota. The only defect with the car is some hail damage from this last storm we had, hence the lowered price of 11,500.

Its pretty small, hard to see in these pictures. I will see if I can get some better shots, or you can just come to wichita and see it for yourself.

New price folks.. 10,500 firm come get you a great running and one of the most comfortable cars you will ever own! I really hate to sell this, if I didn't need money I would keep it. Owning a house sucks sometimes

Of course it's "hard to see in these pictures". Impossible actually unless the car was on its side during the hail storm. Hail damage is typically on the top surfaces of a car, none of which are shown in the tiny pics you have. Could you post up some pics that are not "stance" pics please? Possibly interested but I"m sure not driving 5 hours to come look at hail damage and drive home.

PM me and let me know how much trade you'd be willing to take and what the least cash over the trade is. May have one/two vehicles that would sell much faster than this; could help you out.

You won't see any hail in pictures as there are very little and small dents. Only two decent sized dents. As far as 'stance' pics, you do know this car is 100% factory correct? Just making sure you know that. I am selling the car to afford fixes to my house, so cash is preferred, if you have one or possibly two trade offers, feel free to post them up, never hurts to throw your ideas out there.

If you drove 5hours to test drive this, you would want to take it home.

Yes, I'm aware the car is stock. You realize that these are the exact same angles taken by those people so this type of picture is known as such. How many car dealers have you seen that take pics like this? Probably not very many successful ones. Someone wanting to buy a car is not buying your mad camera skills; they are buying a car. They want to see detailed pictures of what they are buying and at an angle that does not give them a headache to look at.

Full side views, close up pictures of every panel (using correct angles to show blemishes; I promise you I could make hail show up in pics...), far back pics of interior with close ups of blemishes, etc. It's really not that hard.

Sorry, I'm not driving 5 hours on the word of a KCSR member. Been there. Done that.

Mr. RyanA now is your chance to put money where your mouth is. what better way to look at a car than in person.

RyanA

Yep. You said you'll be in mid Missouri when?

SkilviaRB26

Not mid Missouri, I will be in KC. If you want to see it in person, we are staying about 5 minutes away from power and light.

If I was going to be in the area, I'd take a look. Unfortunately, depending on where you'll be, it's still between 130 and 180 miles from me.

Just an idea of the value. Clearly the market sucks for this gen but the price reflects.

Seems like winter months makes it hard to sell these cars. Without looking at it I'll offer you rough trade in. (6800) since it has hail and your price doesn't really seem to reflect that?

1998 Lexus LS400 just had the timing belt /water pump service done. Transmission was just flushed. Everything works on the car. Stock sub was just replaced with an 8" Kicker sub. Car has 140,000 miles on it. Tires have plenty of life on them maybe 50-60%. Overall the car is in good condition.

Thanks for your opinion, price reflects the hail. Good day.

How about I say there is no hail damage? Literally took pictures for another guy and even he couldn't see the damage. Lets just say someone threw 2 pennies at the car but did not chip the paint. Its not bad at all folks! I will get someone to vouch for the hail. If you are truly interested in the car, please come down and look at it with cash in hand. Car will not disappoint.
