Yes it sucks but its not a nightmare at all. I worked at a car dealership many eons ago and I can assure you that the dealership will do with the car what generates the most profit, period. They're...

That's a rare exception. The OP went through a nightmare so the dealership wanted to keep a lid on things. This is not a common occurrence at all.

I feel bad for the poor guy who bought the new...

Unlikely that they would do this on a car that's already sold. They might do something like this on a new unsold car though. But after its been sold? Not a chance IMHO b/c it makes no business...

Things really have changed. 30 years ago you would find the fugazi stuff in the economy cars and you'd have to bump up to a luxury car to get leather. Now you can have leather in the economy cars...

I agree. If NuLuxe was an issue then we would know about it. I think this is an issue with a defective example. NuLuxe is fugazi, but Lexus does it better than anyone else in the business.

Not surprised. NuLuxe is vinyl. Unlike leather which can "give" and deal with the stresses of weight and heat b/c its natural, vinyl doesn't have anywhere near the same tolerances. Hope this...

The pro to white is that it hides swirls well. The cons to white are many. In a lot of ways its almost as hard to keep clean as black. Any specs, chips, etc. show up on a white car when they're...

This is why I always make the argument to never, ever lease! If Lexus leases are anything like Toyota leases, then brace yourself. The only car I would ever advise leasing (which is throwing money...

I'd change it to Timex versus Omega. But the analogy is correct. If you want the most accurate time piece at the cheapest price possible, you get the quartz based Timex. If you want something more...

Its very much a Home Depot Bucket orange. There's a plastic quality to it from far away. But up close you see the depth in the paint. Its definitely a polarizing color and isn't as dark as the F...

That's PR spin. The RC-F was never designed to outperform those German vehicles. It was designed to be a better all around machine than the rivals. But Lexus needs to save face for all the dense...

Silver lining with Grey or Black which is the "safe" combo for me b/c of low maintenance for the paint (ez to clean, swirl marks less noticeable, etc). But I'm pretty enamored by the sonic blue....
