      Hey Scotty, what's the better buy? A Lexus ES 350 2013 with 115,000 miles or 2009 with 93,000 miles? Same price on both cars and both were always serviced regularly at Lexus dealers by the previous owners.

    Scotty you said to get a V6 and since 2016 Lexus been using the 200t 4 cyl engine with turbo. I was looking at a 2015 2.5L V6 and the dealership has only 2016 models with the 4cyl turbo. Whats your opinion on these engines? Are they that reliable or is to soon to tell?

        My 2003 Corolla was assembled at the (now defunct) Nummi UAW plant in California. It had some HORRENDOUS assembly issues that had to be corrected at the dealer including water accumulating on floor, due to the the rear window gasket being installed improperly.
        My Scion xB was assembled in Japan and had no issues whatsoever.

            People think you overhype Toyota and Lexus and bash on Mercedes - those are from people who never owned or worked on any of them. I've had all and conclude that the Japanese simply KNOW HOW TO BUILD CARS. I'm also convinced that Mercedes are good mechanically, but they just don't understand electronics - look up Youtubes on BMW, MB, etc and it's always sensor this sensor that..won't start, etc. SCREW THAT. Working on cars yourself gives you a different appreciation. Reliability is the new performance. Anything will go 100mph and going 0-60 in sub 3 sec or 65 in a 35 is just civil disobediance. Get a car for the track if that's what you want.

                Hi Scotty. Just bought a 2006 Lexus ES 330 with a 97,000 miles on it last year. I don’t think it’s ever run anything but conventional oil. I was able to ask the previous owner who lives local. I called Lexus and they recommended conventional oil. What are your thoughts about conventional to synthetic oil changes on older high mileage cars?

                Thanks , Craig

                        I had to replace my starter last month and it was $950. Did not expect that. Why do all starters eventually wear out?

                                  I am with you on the front end design of the newer Lexus - it looks like a 1961 Plymouth, but my 2012 ES 350 my best car ever, and I have had quite a few cars.

                                      I have to admit, Lexus has some of the most comfy seats. I had a Lexus SC430 and it was nice. Couple of years ago I went to the international car show and sat in all of the of the luxury vehicle and to my surprise, the Acura RL and the Lexus LS470 has the most comfy seats ever.

                                        Be careful with the Trannys, I purchased a 1996 ES300 Lexus with 120k miles on it, and the tranny went out! I think you need to do more than change engine oil, also change the tranny fluid every 50k miles, to be on the safe side! If you buy used, you never know how hard it was driven!!!

                                                Hey Scotty! I love your videos, and agree with your common sense advice based on your extensive experience, BUT lay off the new Lexus grill! That big grill is selling Lexuses hand over fist, so we don't need your "opinion" about that. Buyers either like it, or they don't. So... stick to what you KNOW.

The truth is that new cars are always more expensive but not necessarily better, just different wrapping on same old engine and transmission.

It's now got 82K on it and not a rattle in it. AC blows ice cold...I used to drive Mercedes for many years, but this is just a better car in every way.
