View Full Version : Was this your 2001 LX470?

Hi all... new member here. (more on that later!)

nattybumppo suggested that a post here might help me locate the member that (probably) was the prior owner of an LX470 that I'm looking at purchasing. (There was a receipt in the glovebox that referenced a Rising Sun club discount)


You would have owned it the second half of 2010, and then sold it to folks in Colorado Spgs in Jan 2011.

CarFax tells me that the truck came to CO from Indiana in 2007 with about 109k on the clock.

No mods on this vehicle (yet) :D:D:D

99% that is my old truck. Does it have a cracked plastic motor cover? Hankook A/T's? Drop down DVD player missing the screen?

I still have the valet key for it if you buy it. PM me for lots of fun details on that truck, like the time I had to put a new !@#$! transmission in it.

this one:


FYI it should have detailed maintenance receipts all the way back to new from the lexus dealer in Indiana.

took this vehicle to Bear Automotive in Co Spgs.

The transmission is most certainly not right and there were a variety of abs problems.


fwiw, I would most certainly recommend Don at Bear Automotive.

Don, Romer was selling a pretty sweet built 80 a few months back. I don't know if he still has it but it would be worth a shout-out to see! PM him if it sounds like something you might be interested in. Sash

thanks Sash

I wound up buying a 2000 LC today with barely more than 100k miles.

Now the work begins
