After their new 200 was recently delivered, they were looking to get rid of their 100. I happen to coach their granddaughter in soccer and they knew I drove a Land Cruiser. They asked if I was interested in their 100 if it was offered with a "coach's discount." The deal was too good to pass up. So instead of getting an 80 or a 62, I ended up with another 100. Not really the same, but I already have a vehicle that's tough to climb in and out of. It's nice to slide right into the seat. Plus, 22 mpg's is awesome. I didn't even know that existed anymore.

Drove it up to RMNP and took advantage of the Every Kid in a Park program. 4th graders (or age equivalent), and their family and friends riding with them, get complimentary access to all national parks. Pretty sweet.

Anyway, it rides and drives like a Land Cruiser and we're psyched. 2003, 173k, Toyota and Toy Car Care maintained.

That's awesome Stan! I'm very jealous. I was looking for a decent stock 100 for a DD, but ended up with a (super boring yet practical) RX instead. Still doesn't keep me from checking CL every day for a 100

Tank number two and I'm still at 21.2 mpg. To be fair, it's only been driven on the highway and about 10 miles of dirt exploring around Corona Pass.

Mine can show mileage that high for the first third of a tank if all hwy, but it doesn't last. I usually land around 17 for most tanks these days by the time I get down to 50 miles left in the range.

Bringing up an old thread. I must confess I am thinking of the 100 series and read this entire thread plus some the of MUD regrets threads.

I found a single owner 2003 LX470 that spent its entire life in a rust free state. Mileage is 125k and it looks really clean. The Carfax service records show all regular and apparently recommended maintenance was performed on this vehicle at the Lexus dealership. Possibly including a transmission replacement at 60k miles along with other maintenance services. Appears this has had a meticulous owner.

The bad, accident 12/16/04 very minor to minor damage reported
12/21/06 accident with another vehicle reported
5/14/07 accident with another vehicle, vehicle functional

No airbag or structural damage reported

The dealer is asking $16 though I am sure I can get him down a bit. Given the accident history I would normally pass but seeing how this meticulous owner kept it for 10 years after the last accident seems encouraging.

I will likely ditch the AHC if that makes a difference.

Thoughts on vehicle condition vs price?

With 3 wrecks on the Carfax that price is WAY, WAY too high. 100s arenít rare, so keep looking. If youíre willing to spend $16k and can be patient you can definitely find a clean one without accidents on the history.

Yah, three accidents and a possible trans replacement. Sounds like the PO did not know how to drive? I'd pass.

I would also be concerned with aftermarket paint this many years later. Has it held up? If so, that's impressive.

Thanks all, I will be passing and appreciate the extra things to think about.

I did call the dealership that serviced the vehicle and they had no information on the accidents. I was envisioning parking lot fender benders while mall crawling.

My budget is less than $16k and was hoping to use the accident info to talk them down.

Good to know there will be deals in the future. If anyone happens to come across a deal please shoot me a pm if you think about it.
