Hey guys , Rider , I just want to share something with you guys .
A lot of my friends talk about it all the time and when you're used car shopping , it comes up every single conversation I have .
So my girlfriend , she was looking for a used car .
Conversation comes up .
When you look at high Kloe used cars , a lot of people tend to right away dismiss high kilometer , used cars .
They're like no way too many kilometers .
It's going to break down all this stuff .
But you know what , the mileage on your car isn't the only determining factor on if you're going to buy a used car or not or that car .
So for example , we're looking at a Lexus because I have a 2006 .
Lexus is 350 .
So I'm looking and I have had no problems with it .
I have 250,000 kilometers on my Lexus had it for two years .
I put it roughly 70,000 kilometers since I got it .
Not a single problem on these Lexus .
Lexus is Toyota on these cars .
All you need to do is oil changes , spark plugs every once in a while and just your consumables , like brakes and rotors .
So immediately I started looking for a Lexus and we found one in is 250 a little bit better fuel economy , mint condition body .
So when I went to go see it , I was stunned body has no dents .
There's no rust on the car .
It's in mint condition .
It's a 2008 , had one owner with all the maintenance records done at the dealership every 10,000 kilometers .
They had the maintenance down .
So you look at this car .
You're like , ok , it's got 250,000 kilometers , but it's had one owner .
It's a course of 10 years .
It has every single maintenance record every 10,000 kilometers on all the maintenance never had serious maintenance mishap done to it .
And it's in clean condition inside is in phenomenal condition .
It's almost fully loaded besides the NAV , which most people on a used car don't even want the NAV .
Anyway , everything's done to .
It's got new brakes , new rotors .
There's no damage , clean car facts , no accidents .
But this is a gem .
So when you go and you look at and you think about these 250,000 kilometer cars and you're like , it must look like a piece of shit .
And that's what a lot of people would assume .
But you can find these gems in this dirt just like this gem here we found .
And I told my girlfriend at the time .
I'm like , you have to get this car .
As soon as I looked at it , I saw how in amazing shape it is .
I've seen the clean car facts .
I seen all the maintenance stuff with one owner .
I'm like this is the gem .
And these Lexus guys are telling you like the Toyota Engines .
They last forever .
So they'll last like 250,000 Kers .
No problem .
Uh my buddy's Lexus , I think it was a 1997 L S something .
It last like 400,000 1000 kilometers .
So these things are bulletproof .
Anything from Toyota is bulletproof .
If something does go wrong , the parts are cheap and you can honestly diy it yourself and that's what I'm gonna do for her and that's what I do for my Lexus I S3 50 .
So the key is guys like in this example here , if we got a Lexus , a 2008 I S 250 in Canada , the market with 100 and 50,000 kilometers , it was ranging from 11 to $12,000 .
We got this mint condition arguably in much better condition .
Lexus with one owner with no accident , no accidents with a full set of brand new winter tires and rims with another full set of summer tires and rims .
The Lexus nice alloy ones .
The list on itself is $2000 trying to find on K G like take offs .
We got all that for less than half the price of the comparable 150,000 kilometer Lexus out on the market .
Incredible value that you're getting by picking up a higher kilometer car because , you know , as long as it had good maintenance and it was taken care of during its lifetime and that you're going to take care of it just as well , you're gonna be perfectly fine because the parts are cheap if something does come up and honestly , there's no big major maintenance items for these Lexuses .
So when people buy , you're buying a used car , you need to think of all the different factors when you're buying a car .
If you're buying a BMW or a high sprung engine like a Honda S 2000 and they have like 300,000 hons , ok .
That's a different story , right ?
These cars depending on like the commuter car that you're looking for .
If they got higher mileage , if you're getting a Lexus or Toyota or a Honda and a reliable brand with a reliable engine , the history of the engine is reliable .
You should not be scared of kilometers of mileage .
So that's one thing .
And I was telling her and I was educating her about this .
I'm like , listen , mileage is definitely a consideration , but you got to look at the full picture and the deal when you're getting a car for half price , it's going on the market for an extra 80,000 kilometers get the car that's half price because arguably , and it is in better condition than most of the cars in the market that are paying twice above its value .
So I just wanted to do a little video on that guys .
She's super happy with her Lexus thanks to me and she's right there right now .
Um Yeah , so she's super happy with the Lexus and I'll show you guys some of the video uh of the car , it's in mid condition .
I had some scratches and buffed out some of those scratches .
Um It's going to be in great shape .
It's gonna be a great commuter car for her .
So if you guys have any questions about that , if you're looking for a used car and the car's got way more mileage or a little bit more mileage than the average .
It's a lot cheaper .
Should you consider it ?
Look at all the other factors guys , the make and brand of the car .
It's history , performance and reliability .
These is 2 53 50 are very reliable besides a few things that you keep a eye on and that's it .
Look at the accident history .
Look at the maintenance , look at the condition of the car .
Go ahead and go , look at it , inspect it in real life .
I look at the pictures on Kiichi , the pictures don't do any car justice you need to see with your eyes , go there and check it out , make sure everything works and that's it guys .
So I really want to squash this .
If you're looking for a used car , don't let high climbers necessarily deter you away from an amazing deal , depending on what you're looking to use the car for .
So , yeah .
Um I have some amazing news as well coming up .
So my is right here but that may change for something else .
I don't want to spoil that it will be in another video .
But hopefully anyone that's looking for a used car that helps you out , make sure you subscribe to my channel .
I'll see you guys in the next video .
