This is the way it's always been. Same sausage, different lengths.

Even though different, most are similarly easy. But at any rate, this thread is about Lexus, so that's the process that matters. What other people drive is irrelevant.

Since this is Lexus we're talking about, how difficult is it to hold the trip odometer button for five seconds when starting the car? This is not some arcane incantation we're talking about, or some...

Taxes are a factor. But you know what's the more important factor? The fact that you're paying more. It is FAR better to NOT spend $100, and miss out on the $25 or less in tax savings. You come out...

No kidding, that was my mortgage until last year when I refinanced down to 15 years. Also not too far off from the current lease promo on a $92k BMW 740e.

I would argue that negotiated "sale" price matters MORE in a lease, because it's essentially a leveraged transaction. To keep the math straightforward: If you purchase a $100k car outright and get...

While this is true, it's of marginal value for two reasons:

1) The inverse statement is undeniably true. Less negotiation DOES guarantee you WON'T get a lower price.
2) In most...

Agreed with Steve. I'm no fan of negotiating, but if this becomes standard, I'll never buy another Lexus, except possibly used. My wife and I work hard for our money, and we're not going to simply...

The last six-cylinder M5 rolled off the assembly line well over TWO DECADES AGO! These people need to move on.

I had a Pacifica as a rental on a recent business trip--there were 5 of us, so it was the most logical option--and found it to be quite nice. I don't think ours was the top trim, but it definitely...

I said I had the legal limits, not the legal minimums. Illinois drivers cannot carry more than $250k/person, $500k/accident auto coverage (at least that was the case a few years ago, the last time I...

The pessimistic way to look at it would be they've been overcharging you all these years. :) Your new rates are pretty close to what I've paid for the past 12-15 years, as a twenty/thirtysomething...

While this is true, it's still hyperbole. I have to put $12 worth of DEF into my car once a year, which is hardly a significant expense or inconvenience. The stuff is available at every auto parts...

Why are you changing the Transfer Case and Diff fluid every 15k miles? I don't subscribe to the whole "lifetime fluids" nonsense, but that seems like extreme overkill.

Yep, I take it that's relatively common for the color?



Oh wow, that's a hell of a bargain. At that price if the engine even cranks you got a deal. :)

Not all trees get ginormous, many grow to a particular size and pretty much stay there indefinitely. Our previous house was built in 1978, and had an original Maple in the parkway, which was about...

I'm not so sure about the resale. It's in good shape mechanically, but doesn't look so hot. There are dozens (not quite a hundred, but close) of small rust spots around the grille, on the tailgate,...

It's Canadian. Surprisingly enough, the oil cooler lines are not hard. They're not supple like new rubber by any means, but they also don't resemble iron pipe like I've seen in the past :) Good call...

High mileage maintenance/repairs?

The transmission will probably be programmed differently in the Lacrosse than it is in the Malibu, "detuned" if you will. So you may wind up with a Mush-O-Matic anyway. :) But your test probably...

Not saying it's the case for you, but this is a commonly-held belief that's often (not always) based on faulty logic. Assuming for the sake of argument that the interest part of your mortgage...
