Paying for the name -- twice over.

  1. Someone told me yesterday that she has to take her Lexus to a dealer
    quite a distance away for repairs -- at a high cost -- because the
    local Toyota dealer won't work on it.

    Are the mechanicals of a Lexus significantly different from those of the
    corresponding Toyota? Aren't the differences mostly stylistic?

    Are Toyota dealers prohibited by their agreements with Toyota from
    working on Lexuses?

    Of course, why she doesn't just take it to Fred's Auto Repairs is
    another story.

  3. Maybe she should trade her Lexus in on a Buick!

    Buick vaulted six spots ending the 14-year stranglehold Lexus has had
    on first place in the J.D. Powers report.

    The same think Perce posted. A Buick spokesman said that engineering
    and workmanship put the Buick at #1.
    Why couldn't other GM cars benefit from GM engineering and high paid
    union workers?

  4. Are you sure that "Lexus" is second declension masculine? What if it's
    fourth declension? :) :)
