2003 Lexus Is300 Base Sedan 4-door 3.0l A Good Fixer Upper Or Salvage Vehicle on 2040-cars
Loveland, Ohio, United States
Its a good fixer upper car or salvage vehicle for parts. It does need some TLC. The lexus has had 2 owners. It was bought certified preowned. The starter and rear engine seal was replaced by lexus in April. I replaced hoses, spark plugs, coils, and valves myself in April. It has been a family vehicle. We are selling it because we need something bigger. It's a sports sedan. The front seats are torn, the paint is peeling, and the bumpers need to be replaced (everything can be seen in the images). It's a lexus, its a dependable vehicle. The engine has been well maintained with oil changes and maintenance. It's had its 100,000 miles maintenance by lexus. If I drive the vehicle more than 40 miles it will smoke white; this started the end of May. I believe it needs a new cadillac converter and oxygen sensors. The check engine light is on and because of that the track off/on (traction light) is blinking. Will ship the vehicle to you for extra. I am willing to drive it to you if you are within 45 miles of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Toyota and Lexus stormed the 2014 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards, winning a combined 18 categories including best brand and best luxury brand. This marks the third year in a row that both automakers have won the Brand and Luxury Brand resale value awards. In all, Toyota won 11 categories and Lexus won seven.
Honda made a good showing, as well, winning two segments (Accord Plug-In Hybrid and Civic Si) and putting one car on the top-10 Best Resale Value list (CR-V). Chevrolet did even better, winning two segments (with the V6 Camaro and the Corvette) and placing three cars on the top-10-overall list (again, the Camaro and Corvette, plus the Silverado 1500).
The other winners came from Jeep, Dodge, Infiniti, Subaru and Audi. To give you a clearer picture of the Toyota and Lexus domination, their 18 mentions represents more than half of the 34 awards (including the top-10-overall list).
According to Consumer Reports, Toyota is set to release a fix for trunk release pulls on certain Lexus vehicles that could snap off in an emergency. As you may recall, CR found the federally-mandated emergency releases could break if pulled toward the user. As it turned out, the trunk surround behaved like a fulcrum, putting more force against the center of the release than toward the trunk mechanism itself. While the organization found the problem to exist on 2013 Lexus ES and GS, Toyota was able to replicate the flaw on the IS as well.
Toyota will alert 700,000 owners of 2007-2013 Lexus ES models, 2006-2012 IS vehicles and 2013 GS cars and replace the old ABS plastic release with a sturdier polypropylene part free of charge once the components are available to dealers. The service campaign is expected to begin in January.
Ah, aluminum. The lightweight, strong material has long held a following within the premium ranks, but as Ford prepares to launch an aluminum F-150, the material is gaining acceptance among more mainstream automakers. Toyota is one such brand, with a new report indicating that the Japanese giant will add aluminum bits and bobs to some of its upcoming vehicles.
These won't be full, aluminum-intensive treatments like the F-150, however. Automotive News reports that an aluminum hood and liftgate will be coming to the 2016 Lexus RX, and following that, the Camry will get a bonnet built from Element 13 for model year 2018.
As AN points out, Toyota is no stranger to aluminum, using it in Japanese-built models like the Prius and Scion FR-S. The RX and Camry, though, will mark the first time the company's North American factories will use the material, and they'll do so on a significantly larger scale, owing to the higher volumes that the Camry and RX represent.
