I’ve started looking for buying my first car!
One of the cars I saw and liked a lot is a 2002 Lexus ES300. It has some 90,000 miles on it, but was owned by a single person. I took her for a test drive and to tell you the truth I was impressed! Maybe because I have never driven anything similar before… And the price they told me was very competitive… $12,500 out the door.
What bugs me though, is that her engine started only at the third time… The first two times, the engine went off just a couple of seconds after it had started.
I’ve heard that sometimes cars that stay long enough on a parking lot (and not being moved around) might have their batteries drained and won’t start. Is this true? Is there a way I can check (with the dealer) if that’s the problem, or if it’s something more serious? What is your feeling?
