Can anyone check out this lexus ls430 for me in person ? Im bout to buy it sight unseen and thought someone local could help me out. Its a 2004 with 38k miles that appears in the pics to be extremely clean. Im picky bout cosmetics tho and only want an ultra clean basically immaculate car. Heres the address.


Texas Direct Auto
1915 HW90 A (South Main)
Missouri City Texas 77489

Tell them youre checking it out for me (steve in va ). They only show by appointment so you gotta call chris first and tell him youre coming, 832 947 9951

Please only someone who knows what to look for, I want someone mature to handle this for me . And if I end up buying the car based on your evaluation and its good when it arrives then there will be a thank you gift coming your way in the mail or thru paypal :fruit: I already drove 600 miles round trip for one that ended up being nothing like what the pics showed so I dont wanna make that kinda mistake again with an out of state car. This car is my only hope for now of scoring a 04+ black on black ultra luxury package ls430, its the only one for sale in the USA that I know of for under 30 grand with those kinda miles, help me out plz!

Texas Direct is pretty legit. The pictures they take show most, if not all, of the imperfections someone might notice. I bought my truck there and have sent 3 other people to them since then and all have been extremely happy with the results.

A couple things to keep in mind about that place:

1. They are not there for customer service like most dealers. They are there to move as many cars as possible, not wipe your butt like most dealers do. That puts off some people, but I prefer it.

2. They have literally 5 times as many cars in a lot that you would think would normally be able to fit. It took me at least 30 minutes just to leave because cars were crammed so tightly in there.

3. Make sure to set that appointment so they can have it ready for you. If not, you will wait hours and hours to see if they can get the car out of the mess of wall to wall cars that is there.

Like I said, I was quite happy with the results of mine. There was zero damage to the truck, no chips, no dings, no rips in the seats, nothing. From all the cars I saw there that day, they only buy and sell vehicles in damn damn good shape.

You can be pretty confident in buying from this place. I know that doesnt make it any easier considering you are in Cali, but I would be very surprised if the car isn't exactly as they say it is.

I live about an hour from there. However my parents live like 25 mins from there and I'll be going over tomorrow morning since my daughter goes to grandma's for Chinese lessons.

I'll see if I can swing by with my camera. (No promises) Now if cosmetics is your concern not a problem. Im not going to get real dirty as far as checking compression or engine work. PM me exactly what you would like done (pics of specific angles) vin tags etc.

Just an FYI they do not haggle price by much to mu understanding.

Thanks Trent, that actually helps a ton, exactly what I needed to know. I have someone who pmed me and said he could go today. All VIN tags in place is an absolute must or I dont want it. I dont need anything but cosmetics checked out and also how the car starts , idles and if you can drive it even better. It comes with factory air bag suspension so it should be a nice ass ride. So hopefully this will work out for me. In the meantime I hope it wont sell out from under me. Its a needle in a haystack kinda car. Theres prolly less then a dozen of these for sale in the entire country right now in the 04+ trim. I personally know of 3 others identical to this one and they are all well over 30 grand, this one is 26,700! Oh and if any of you need an autocheck done , I have a 2 month account that just started yesterday . But plz a limit of 2 VIN's per person. PM me for that. Oh and its my birthday tommorow so I wont be back on here till sunday if I dont get back to you right away. Benzo if you're gonna be over that way already then cool but if youre a half hour away then please dont trouble yourself with all that driving unless you get really bored or somethin. Thanks so far for the help guys, you Texas boys are pretty hospitable.

ya the salesman doesnt seem helpful at all. He wasnt even willing to walk over to the car and describe any blemishes or anything like that. So if anyone wants to help me out then plz do so. Assuming you can find the car on the lot then all u need to really do is just go look at it, I at least need to know how the paint and body is. Seems like this place has no customer service whatsoever. I'll call him again today and say I have someone that wants to come see it. If I cant get ahold of him then Im gonna try another salesman.
