The Lexus is gone.
I sold it for $2900, which is $100 less than I was hoping, but it’s not too bad. I miss it but so far I’m not regretting it. It was a nice couple who bought, they drove an hour to come look at it.
Now the hunt is on for a replacement, although it may be difficult. I’m gonna be gone for a while in June, but still need a car off and on. I definitely need one by July. Plus I’m rather picky about what I like, so most of my options are roughly 1.5 hours away in STL. I did look at a couple today, but only one really stood out. It’s an 2005 Acura TSX with 188k on the odo, which would still be 7 years newer and has close to 80k fewer miles than the Lexus. It’s in pretty decent shape, other than some rust and wheel wobble above 35, which is a bit of a red flag. It could just need an alignment and balancing, but it could be suspension or a bent wheel. No dash lights is a big plus, as well as strong brakes. It’s listed at $3900 but could probably get negotiated down. Other than whatever is causing the wobble and new tires, this could be a good little car. Oh, and a quick VIN check shows full service records at a semi-local Acura dealer.
We shall see, I’m only free 3 days this upcoming week, plus 3 people with jobs will be sharing 1 car. We’ll see how this goes.
