Yeah.Yeah toyota's with moderately nicer ('luxury') seats. They do just go and go. Have a look at the chassis, the drivetrain tend to last a very long time, the chassis/body* might be the place you get a surprise, its not too likely but its the least reliable part on a toyota.*
*though the standards supposedly have been dropping off for about ten years.
Well my (much smaller toyota) is actually starting to rust at the petrol cap, its quite visible. if you see any holes, or things that might soon be holes, what mechanics tend to do is try and stab it with a screwdriver and if the screwdriver goes through then it is fucked. Not sure I'd do this to someones elses car, but like anything awful should be obvious enough. A lot of it can be welded anywhoo, its just something to take a look at. If you are from a winter snow area then it might be worse because of all the salt that sticks in there.Yeah.
I've no idea what Lexus is up to these days but I'm looking at yokes from 2004. They just seem solid.
I don't want to seem simple, but how do you look at the chassis? Just crawl underneath with a torch and poke about? Or should I probably find a mechanic to give it a once over?
A guy in the NCT did this to my mate's classic mini. Tempers were lost. Gardai were called. He's banned from that test centre now.what mechanics tend to do is try and stab it with a screwdriver and if the screwdriver goes through then it is fucked.
