  • Indeed, the owner proudly opens with, “this is my 'million mile Lexus”. It's still got its original V8 which allegedly has never had the heads off.

    A famous Lexus LS saloon is approaching the million-mile mark. See for yourself what that kind of wear and tear does to a car.

    The fourth owner was not so kind to the car by only doing an oil change every now and then leaving Matt to pick the pieces when he bought it. Finding things to do in the city was not hard to come by. He also plugged it into a fault code reader, which only talked to the ECU but, amazingly, turned up nothing serious. Pretty much bounce on the brake pedal as if it was a trampoline until the red hue of the halogen bulbs has disappeared. One lucky and eager customer went to the dealership, signed a piece of paper and parted with their hard-earned cash for this luxury saloon.
