My wife’s 2002 SC430 as been very well maintained and is in great mechanical shape. Runs and drives as good as ever with only 200,000 miles. Like a MD88, with continued maintenance it could provide good service for the rest of our lives. Lexus V8s are known to go 1,000,000 miles. Interior is still nice. As you can see, it needs some minor body work, back bumper cover as well as front. Estimate from the body shop is $3100. I checked KBB and found person to person value in VG condition is about $6000. This car cost over 60K new. The current LC500 is north of $100K.
- Sell 3K as is?
- Repair and sell 6K?
- Repair and keep forever & sell the 911? (Bank some cash!)
