I was looking hard for a good Lexus RX but got a 2004 IS200se instead (I think it's same as 300 but with a 2l inline six, a measly 150hp) just because good price, awesome condition, maintained at dealership every year, only 53k, one owner.
- Is there anything I should pay attention to? (timing belt was replaced last year). Also, I have zero experience with rwd vehicles (but there is really no snow/ice in England).
- There is no mention of the oil they been using, I plan to use Castrol Edge 5w30. The manual states a wide range of viscosities, up to 20w50!
- Will still need the RX for extra space and towing, but not found a good one yet, last one I saw had thick sludge caked under oil cap - the lip/baffle, so I am planning to invest in a borescope, are the cheap ones from ebay/amazon good enough?
Thank you for all your kind work!
