Hearing folks say the transmission goes out about 150,000. Hear anything about that?
Would do repairs if not true.

If you like it keep it and get it repaired. I assume the transmission is the problem. If so, do some shopping around for repair prices at the Dealership and transmission shops.

Good information Bob. There is NO truth in the transmission in a Lexus will 'go out' at 150k. You heard wrong. On the contrary, they can last much longer. You might consider a drain and fill on the transmission, but unless the fluid is dark and/or has a burnt odor NO flush

What is the $6k work? If not transmission, by drain and fill I mean drop pan and clean filter screen And if it has not already been done be sure to change timing belt and water pump

85

No you can buy one for less
