Just FYI, Toyota is #1 brand in Vietnam, and has more than 30% of the market.

Well..only high class people there drive such car...an RX350 cost as much as usd 150k in VN. The traffic in Vietnam is horrible.

I do mean horrible....laws, lights, signs..pedestrian...dogs...chicken....cat...all kind of things flood the street. Fatalities happen everyday.

Every year Vietnam has more than 140,000 people died by traffic accidents

I'm surprised they would allow it to be called "Saigon" since the communists there have basically blacklisted all references to its former name. I wonder where it is located at (maybe District 1?). Vietnam is up and coming, about 15-20 years behind China's developement, and this is proof this is fast rising!

Looking at upper management not sales. I can speak, read, and write in Vietnamese. Including multiple dialects and Moutain people.

Family owns land there and still have living relatives.

Question Wonder Why Only 3 Yr Warranty


VietNamNet Bridge Ė Toyota Japanís luxury Lexus brand has officially debuted in Ho Chi Minh City on December 26, adding a new member to Vietnamís high-end car market.

Toyota Japan General Director Yoshihisa Maruta said Lexus is aiming to become Vietnamís leading luxury automotive brand.

The company will focus on consolidating the reputation of its trademarks and ensuring the best quality of customer care.

Lexus also inaugurated Lexus Sai Gon Centre, its 1st agent in Vietnam, with investment capital totalling more than VND200 billion.

It released the Vietnamese price listings for its LS460, GS350, ES350, LX570, and RX350 models, which range from an entry level of VND2.5 billion to VND5.7 billion at their most expensive.

All Lexus cars are imported from Japan and include 3-year warranties and maintenance policies.
