Mine had maybe 15-20 miles on it. Anything over a couple of hundred and the dealer may have been using it for a demo. Andy from McGrath Lexus will probably be able to shed some light on this too...

I got mine with 17 back in June :)

How many does one of the ones your looking at or purchased have already?

Andy is the guy to talk to about this like ChrisH said :D

EVERY lexus car will have at least 10-20 miles on it. It's part of Lexus' mantra (if you will) to inspect and test drive EVERY Lexus to ensure your vehicle has no problems.That's why there are very few recalls.If you have more than 20 miles on it then maybe you should ask the dealer why?They HAVE to explain the miles,otherwise dont buy the car,maybe it was a demo,or a saleman of the month got a weekes ride for his/her achievement. :D

A car with more than 100 miles is a car that has been test driven, or has been used as a demo. We flat bed our cars for dealer trades to avoid mileage, but not everyone does this. I would ask why the car has the mileage. You may get a discount on a car with mileage, but find out why first.

"i am thinking anything over 20 i am not buying "

EXACTLY,... I had the opportunity to buy a nice black one in the showroom but I knew it was test driven and it had around 100 miles on it and I said no way.! I waited for a Smokey Granite one to come in off the boat,bought it with 13 miles on it...,it's just like rental cars people do beat them up.Not as bad as rentals but you all know what I mean.As for a deal on a Demo, yeah you get a great deal but it's still "used" and I dont feel comfortable buying something I didn't break in properly or did myself.She has to be tight for me the first time...:D

If the mechanic actually drove the car like they are suppose to during PDI, it might be right around 10-20 miles. Again, if it is a local trade, we drive them. 100 is worse case before I would ask alot of questions....

My F had 17 on the ODO... As SuperFreak say.. Order your car as I did. My salesman called the day b4 it was enroute from port of entry. However I feel a new car should have no more than 50 miles ODO.. Period. Or Discount.

That's amazing, they usually have more than that from driving on the ship, driving at port, and then being driven when they go through PDI. I have never seen a car with that little miles on it, usually they may have 7-10 miles on 'em.

If your getting a F on a Invoice price go for it..I read how much the dealer pays on the F thru a magazine..If the info is accurate and if you get it for the price, I say shoot..DO IT!!!:D That's less money you spend for the same thing I or some of us paid over $61K..At least I did with every option that came up to little over $70K with Tax and markup fee and I got Ext warranty..
