Background:

Let me begin with a little background.  This is a one owner car, loved and cherished by its retired owner and is only being sold to make room for a new Tesla.  It has been BABIED and is near flawless!  Ordered in breathtaking Starfire Pearl White, this color glistens even in the lowest of light.  A bright white, Starfire has a pearl flake in the paint that adds a depth an shine that makes it so much more than just a plain white!  Paired wonderfully with the white is the light, airy Parchment interior.  A combination of dark grays, crisp parchment, deep wood and chrome highlights, it makes for an absolutely incredibly comfortable and beautiful place to spend time!  This is a classic color combination that will not age poorly with time!

This white beauty lives in sunny, dry, temperate California since brand new and is corrosion free!!!!  It was serviced by Lexus dealers ONLY. Let’s continue to the service!

The Condition and Service:

This car has been ENTHUSIASTICALLY and PROFESSIONALLY maintained and serviced! With only 14,000 miles, the factory extended warranty and the legendary Lexus reliability, one could not ask for more!

Let’s start on the engine and drivetrain:

-ENGINE

This engine has VERY LOW miles for the year (a low average of about 2,800 a year), 14,000 miles appear on the odometer and the car shows the same care throughout.  Starts right up, no issues, no check engine lights – ZERO stories.  But let’s chat about that engine for a second.  What an engine it is!  GOBS of power – a tame kitten around town, a CHEETAH with a heavy right foot.  The 272hp feels not a horsepower shy and the car springs to occasion if you give it the opportunity.  Check out the service records below!  EXTENSIVE preventative and scheduled maintenance has been performed religiously on this ES.  Brand new oil and oil filter!  It doesn’t get any better than this!

-TRANSMISSION

Shifts are incredibly quick, smooth and almost totally imperceptible.

-BATTERY

BRAND NEW battery ready for years of service!

Lets move to the suspension and brakes:

-BRAKES

Babied and near new brake pads in the front and rear – loads of pad life!  The car brakes great.  Nice linear pedal pressure, not too soft, not too hard of a pedal.  Great feel for the road in the pedal too – not too isolated!

-SUSPENSION

The shocks dampen the ride wonderfully and control the springs perfectly.  No clunks, bangs, noises or knocks.  They are tight in corners, but yet supple around town!

-STEERING

The steering is tight and has no excess play. It has a nice light-medium weight to it, with great road feel!

Let’s continue to the exterior:

-PAINT and BODY

The paint and body NEAR FLAWLESS!  It is a 9++ out of 10 easily.  I hesitate ever to use these terms, especially when often times on eBay bidders are buying sight unseen.  I like to point out everything I see – check out my past auctions for examples.  But this beauty is near as good as it gets.  Shiny, beautiful Starfire Pearl White paint was recently polished, finished and waxed by a highly acclaimed detailer here in LA.  It looks FANTASTIC.  CLEAN and CLEAR CarFax.  NO ACCIDENTS. There are NO DINGS – not even a minor one.  Zero.  Like 99% of cars, there are a couple very small scrapes on the lower bumper valance from a low driveway that were once touched up and once scraped lightly again, left alone.  They are impossible to see unless you literally lay under the car and are very minor indeed.  There are a couple VERY small stone chips in the rear bumper as well.  Between 1/32nd of an inch and 1/16th of inch.  Almost imperceptible.  That’s it.  End of story.  I like to really relay all I see, and that’s it!  It’s a 14k mile beauty – what’s to say?!  This is a dry SoCal car!  That means no rust lurking under the surface ready to pop up and ruin your paint!  If there was a place to buy ANY car, it is dry, warm SoCal.  No rain and no road salt!  Check out the trunk jambs and the door jambs below.  I would eat a 4 course meal off them!

-WHEELS

The wheels are in stunning shape and with the exception of a few extremely light curb scrapes on the very edge of the wheel lip, they are flawless!  They look brand new and shine beautifully!!

-TIRES

Tires have 85%+ life remaining and ready to go countless thousands of miles!  No leaks, no issues!

-GLASS

Not to let a pebble defeat this car, the windshield and glass are great shape!
-FOGLIGHTS

OEM foglights both work great!

Onto the cabin:

-SEATS

The Parchment leather seats are absolutely STUNNING!!!  They are brand new in shape and I have to say they, along with the rest of the interior, are a 10/10.  They are incredibly supportive with what feels like zero foam wear. The leather is SO soft and comfortable.  I truly love driving this car.  You sit coddled comfortably and in wonderful seating position in these buttery soft seats!  The leather has extraordinarily well cared for and shows no reportable flaws.  The interior has been recently cleaned and conditioned as well! Words don’t express well enough just how wonderful the seats are in this beauty!  With dual seat heaters and ventilation too they are a very nice place to spend time!  The multiple power settings, memory positioning and adjustable and telescoping steering wheel allow for a comfort position for near any driver!

-HEADLINER

Beautiful and clean!

-CARPET

Beautiful carpet in the car!  It has been shampooed and cleaned as part of the overall detail.  GORGEOUS!

-NAVIGATION

Fully functioning, easy to use Navigation system!  Voice commands, easy to read and easy to navigate menus.  Wonderful!

-RADIO/CD CHANGER

OEM radio sounds fantastic – deep, rich sound with clear lows and well defined highs.  The Mark Levinson system allows you to hear parts of your favorite songs you never even noticed before!

-AC/HEAT/HVAC Panel

AC is ice cold and Heat is earth core hot!  Easy to use system which interfaces with the large screen.  Easy for on the fly adjustments without having to use much more than a quick glance!

-STEERING WHEEL

The leather is flawless with no wear and the wood is deep, rich and shows the same care!

-KEYLESS ENTRY

Remote keyless entry arms the alarm with a press of a button!  The keyless start works perfectly too.  Just keep your key in your pocket, sit in the car and press START!

-CARGO AREA

Beautiful, essentially unused trunk with the trunk carpet looks beautiful!

The DETAILS:

Sometimes the most overlooked and under discussed element in ads are the little details that make the difference between an 8 out 10 car, a 9 out of 10 car or a 9.9 out of 10 car.  I really want to spend a moment to discuss these details to highlight why this is that 9.9 out of 10 car.  There are other ES350 out there, but spend a moment here to understand why this car is so special.

Check out all of the pics below:
-Note the radio volume and tuner knobs: NO WEAR or signs of being used!
-Check out the steering wheel buttons: NO wear or fading!
-Take a glance at the shift knob – ZERO leather and wood wear!
-Power window buttons are without fade!
-Engine Start Button shows NO wear!
-Note the drivers side seat buttons and valance – NO kick or scuff marks.  No grime in the buttons!
-Car manufactures like to hide the engine under a lot of plastic – note the clean engine under the plastic shroud.  No leaks of any sort!
-NO wear on the wood in the center console, no wear on the wood under the nav from a resting hand, NO wear on the armrest!
-NO wear on the chrome door handles both inside and out!
-PERFECT trunk mat – no sloppy cargo rolling around!
-Note the hand grips on the door panel – no wear or stains!

The list goes on and on!

The EXPERIENCE:

Driving this Lexus is truly is fantastic. I usually use the analogy for other cars “It is Lexus quiet inside”.  In this case, it truly is Lexus quiet inside! It pulls and handles like a sports car and is as comfortable as a Rolls Royce.  It has loads of power, a communicative chassis, wonderful strong brakes, a well tuned comfortable suspension and is an absolute treat to drive.  It is everything you could want in a car, and with all of the options, everything you could want in a Lexus.  This is A LOT of car of the money and dare I say one of the best money-to-value cars available especially when you consider the outrageously dependable reliability of the Lexus brand. Who is this car good for?  It would make a wonderful family car with easy access in the rear, comfortable rear seats and a large trunk.  It would make a great daily driver for someone looking for a comfortable reliable luxury car as well.  Lexus keeps it simple as well and is very user friendly, which makes for an ideal car for someone perhaps retired looking for a wonderful luxury car but without too much hassle or overwhelming invasive technology like you can find in the BMW and Mercedes.

I am not a dealer!  This is a private sale between the original owner and the new buyer.  I work as an automotive concierge and take the pain out of car ownership for my clients.  That means I am not marking up cars for my benefit, I am operating solely in my client’s best interest only and I am not going to auctions and buying unknown history cars nor am I adding additional unnecessary ownership history.   Don’t spend big money on a car from a “turn-em-and-burn-em” style dealer when all they do to promote the car is say a few things they think people like to hear.  As you may tell from my ad, I know cars and what they need and the details that make them tier 1, from a tier 2 or worse and I hope to have addressed them to those of you that know as well.  If an ad says “Low miles and well cared for”  Ask questions!  If you don’t get thorough, well addressed answers, start planning more money and more aspirin.  This is a NO RESERVE AUCTION!

Feel free to ask me any questions at all.  Residents around the country I am happy to be flexible for your arranged shipper so that you can get your new car as soon as possible.

My standard disclaimer/mantra for any car regardless of service or price: The car is sold with no warranty other than the warranty outlined above from Lexus.  You are buying a used car.  Eventually every car will break, if you find one that doesn’t please let me know.  I do my ABSOLUTE BEST to offer only cars that are of TOP NOTCH service.  I am not a dealer, just a guy who loves Lexus (among other cars) and hope to pass along my passion and fervor for these cars.  That said if ever you encounter an issue I do my best to provide advice, direction or even parts if I have them.  Please understand that it is a used car and will have minor signs of use.  That means please do not expect a showroom brand new car. Please adjust your expectation level to that of a 14,000 mile car, but however is WELL above average for it’s year/miles.   This is very low miles for ES350 of this year, but please just remember that no 14,000 mile car is perfect.  It is though an EXTREMELY clean, nice ES350!  PLEASE ONLY BID IF YOU INTEND TO BUY.  If you would like to have an Ebay 3rd party mechanic service check out the car I MORE than welcome it.  Please have the car checked out before bidding and not after, if you intend to use that service.  And please, if you would like to utilize this service, contact me with more than a couple days left in the auction so we can arrange schedules.  Please check your local laws and registration procedures before buying.  Buying over the internet can be scary sometimes!  I get it, because I am an enthusiast too!!  For that very reason, I am more than happy to answer every and any question you may so you know 100% what you are buying.  But, please ask any and all questions ahead of purchase!  All sales are final, you are buying as-is, the sky is blue, etc, etc. Sorry to have to give the boring speech.

Please feel free to ask any and all questions
