Hey guys, I'm new here. I'm picking up my IS F in about two weeks and have gone on two test drives so far. The one I've test driven twice has 10,000 miles on it and has never been owned, just executive driven by one single guy. I told the dealer that for this kind of money I would probably just opt to buy a brand new one, and then he threw out the ridiculous price for the IS F with 10,000 miles on it that has never been owned...$49,500!!! Now I don't know whether I'm gonna take that one or just spend the $5-$10k extra for a new one. Any advice??

Thanks

Might want to tell them to do something with the warranty like have them give you the extended at a discount price or something to your liking. If there is no body damage and it is in excellent condition I don't see why it would be a bad purchase. The F is an awesome car and Toyota's are known for their reliability :)

Yeah I actually called the dealer last night and told him that i'd like to come in soon and basically just inspect the car by myself for a little while. If I dont find anything wrong with it Ill tell him I'll take it if he gives me an extended warranty since 10,000 miles are already used up. :D

the demo car everyone beats on so, just so you know, but honestly i think its worth it if you are interested in the demo for 49500, think about it its almost like $ 1 dollar for every mile thats driven on it, lol, but honestly its your own opinion, def make sure they throw some extra things in such as warranty and what not, just in case.

Thats the way to do it. Go over the car in detail and check it out for damages, scratches, paint swirls, stuff like that. What color is the interior and exterior? :cool:

I would have no reservations if the the car is in super shape. Take a close look at the tires, new tires may be in order. Good luck, and believe me, you will not be disappointed!:cool:

Good point Rick "Superfreak" James (she's superfreakin you,,superfreak,superfreak...woo ooh ooh ohh ohh) :D "I'm Rick James Bitch" LOL

Definitely have them use a tire gauge to determine the tread wear on the tires because new ones will run you about $350-$500 each :( but otherwise a steal at 49k :D

The price is good but think of how people treat demo vehicles. If your budget is tight or on the borderline of this demo or a new F, then the decision may be easier.

I sold cars in college and just based on my experience, I would not buy a demo.

G'luck!
