Yes, your point about more features and better efficiency today is valid. I was refering to other things....and other issues.

We were originally discussing Lexus and its 30-year anniversity, but,...

I'd rephrase that if I were you LOL. Few things were more reliable than a Conestoga Wagon. Just hitch a team of horses or oxen and go.

He's correct that FCA products usually aren't the best bet for reliability, but, IMO, he still overdoes his speech/mannerisms/emoting in front of the cameras.

Perhaps the rollers/hinges or some other moving parts in them need some lubrication. Have you (or the shop) tried spraying them, where the parts can be reached, with WD-40 or a similar silicone...

You can look at it three ways, though. First, you probably (?) don't have much longer on the lease.....unless you signed for three years (I don't remember if it was for two or three years). Second,...

Yes and no. MB products are indeed more reliable today than they were in the late 90s and 2000s, but IMO they just don't have the same build-solidness they did before Lexus came along. I can remember...

Numbers themselves can't be disputed, but what we read into them (or attempt to spin from them) can be. Bitkahuna made a simple but accurate point.....47% repeat-buyers means that more than half are...

Yes and no. Granted, those kinds of temperatures are no picnic. But AZ/NV/UT heat, in your part of the country, is dry, and does not have the absolutely miserable humidity of the Gulf and East Coast....

As far as how people were perceiving German brands, after Lexus was introduced, Mercedes was forced to cut costs because the LS400 was significantly undercutting them in price. Before the 1990s, and...

I have to at least partially disagree. It took more than just chump-change to start up the Lexus brand in the U.S., and I doubt that Toyota would have committed that kind of cash here if Acura had...

Let's also not forget that one reason why Lexus was launched in the U.S. to start with was at least partly due to Acura's earlier success, having started in 1986. Acura, though it (and Infiniti) were...

This might (?) surprise you, but the concept itself of a flying wing is not modern at all. It was one of the...
