What used Lexus IS saloon will I get for my budget?
High-mileage examples of the hybrid IS300h can be had for less than £12,000, but you might be better off spending between £13,000 and £15,000 as a starting point. For this price bracket, you’ll get a 2014 car with an average mileage and a full service history, from a trader or an independent dealer. Up the ante to £15,000-£17,000 and you’ll be able to find a 2015 or 2016 car with all of the above criteria, while upwards of £18,000 should get you a 2017 or 2018 car bought from a franchised dealer. Spend between £20,000 and £25,000 on a 2019 or 2020 model.
How much does it cost to run a Lexus IS saloon?
Lexus dealers offer used car servicing plans. These plans offer a flexible, easy way to budget for servicing requirements by either paying in advance or by instalment. They are available on any Lexus model new or used and can be bought at any time. Their servicing costs may be higher than many more mainstream manufacturers', but labour rates undercut BMW's and Mercedes-Benz's by some margin. There are not many independent Lexus specialists out there, but if you can find one, this will reduce your service bills even further.
