I have had nothing but problems with McGrath Lexus. They are untrustworthy and crooked. I would give them one star, but that would be too generous.

I usually hate dealerships, but McGrath has been one of the best Lexus dealerships I have been too..
I had an ABS sensor go out in my 2001 IS300 and had McGrath run the ABS diagnostic and then replaced the broken sensor with one on Ebay, re-set the computer and wallla, a $500 turned into $160. These magnetic sensors are not often easy to remove and have to be drilled out.

Car you bought had that many problems? Wouldn't/shouldn't this a be caveat emptor (buyer beware)...I mean you are/did buy a used car, right?

Did you not check the car out yourself?

It doesn't seem so. So should we question your crediblity, or your judgement before questioning Lexus Westmont?

I still think it had something to do with lack of coffee or cookies in the lobby!!!

Timmy41, your second post on CL and you want to bash a Lexus dealer. Next time buy a Chyrsler and go to their forum. Don't try to insult us with your non-specific whining !
