Most charities that solicit vehicle donations have a contract to sell them to a salvage yard for a set price (not much) and that price is all you can deduct from your income. You would be better off getting the junk price yourself. You will be much further ahead selling it, someone will be glad to pay a few thousand for a driving RX350 no matter the mileage.
None that I can detect.
But I try to change the oil every 10K. Lethe old oil drip out overnight and OCD clean everything. Then 0W-20 full synthetic.
A mechanic on Youtube says what Lexus recommends is too late.
Should be 5 to 7 K.
I expect scrap value or donation tax-refund value is about the best you’ll do if you sell it. No harm trying some of the ideas above though, might get lucky. You could write a letter to that tv show about classic car restoration, “Counting Cars”. Sometimes they take on newer cars.
I can’t imagine that OP would get any offers in that range. But I’m not the one making the offers, maybe somebody out there would make a bid that high for a 357K miles car if they really wanted that particular make/model I guess. Who’s gonna know more? Me, or KBB?
Well, the oil draining overnight is not going to hurt the car, it is just a symptom of owner’s OCD. The 131 MPH would not bother me much if it is not burning oil. And I am not buying the car, the owner believes it is well maintained and has no issues, so why not keep it.
One of my relatives bought a car nearly every month, sort of a part time business. He’d fix minor cosmetic/engine problems then flip it for a profit. I expect folks like him still doing that, but harder to do now, car’s more complicated, and less-alike. Fords especially, very similar to each other from 1960’s through late 70’s.
I had a guy working at the shop who always asked permission to change his oil after work. He would pull the drain plug, then bike home while the car sat on the hoist overnight to drain every last drop of oil. He was that meticulous about his maintenance. He had 569,000 miles on that Passat without any engine repair other than timing components. I’m not going to argue with anything anyone does when he gets 500K+ on a VW engine!
