I would want to know how old the tires were. Given the age and miles, it would not surprise me to find out the tires were five+ years old, unless of course they're brand new.

The tires are only one year old. As for brakes, they were also changed a year ago. I don't have the records in front of me so I would need to check to see if the brake fluid was flushed when the brake pads were changed.

As for the belts and hoses, I assume the Lexus dealer would have changed them 3000 miles ago if needed when the car was in for service at 70K miles.

Since it won't be going back to that Lexus dealer, it doesn't hurt to have new eyes check it out.
