Default The RX has to go to the hospital!

Got rear ended last THU, sucks. The tailgate latch has been compromised and it thinks it is open and therefore is beeping all the time, also can not be locked. Everyone was OK. A Ford F250 Diesel was the culprit, thank God the damage was contained. Little sore but OK.

Glad you are OK! Pretty lucky with only that damage from a F250!

And to top it off it was my daughter's wedding last Saturday! Quite stressful. But as mentioned all the passengers were OK and the wedding was simply amazing! All good and thanks for the well wishes.

The RX is a keeper, 80,180 miles. Checked it in on one of the best shops in town, Magnum Collision Marietta. Had my SC done there and it was a good experience.

Well going on 3 weeks, still at the shop. They ordered original Lexus parts for the rear pan. Dealing with a stinking rental car I am sick of it. Smells like cigarettes! Phooey!

Take the rental car back and switch it out. I do it all the time for both normal rental car places and car dealer loners. They are surprisingly flexible.
