    Default Lexus pre-purchase inspection - where?

    I've been driving 2010-2013 RX350's ... before I buy, I want a PPI done.

    Is a Lexus dealership the "best" place to have this done?

    I would imagine so, they would be most picky about things like major, minor services to OEM spec. Plus they would be able to check for recalls that have and haven't been performed. But you could probably also check a performance shop that specializes in toyota/lexus' if there are any around.

    So a car i like has been serviced regularly at Wayzata Lexus.

    Can i expect an impartial, straight shooting PPI from that dealership? Or is there a conflict of interest ?

    Your mom goes to college.

    Anyways, BOTH Lexus dealerships (wayzata, maplewood) do not offer inspections, prepurchase or otherwise. They do offer diagnosis for specific complaints, but that is it. No PPI's, so that is a noob mistake I guess.

    If any Lexus techs are reading who could sell me their expertise, send a PM.

    I did not find out before i bought the car, but in case someone happens upon this thread in the future:

    CarSpec in Eden Prairie is Toyota/Scion/Lexus specific and gets good marks. I'm going to try them out.
