What used Lexus GS saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Lexus GS saloon?

Measured against other executive rivals, the GS is no bargain to buy or run. It loses more of its resale value early on than a similar BMW or Merc, making nearly-new purchases a potentially expensive long-term investment, although older cars seem good value.

Servicing costs are expensive at main dealers and there are few independent specialists you can turn to as an alternative. Most spare parts are also highly-priced and, as with servicing, there's little scope for saving by buying non-Lexus parts.
