Lexus's are a smashing hit in the US, but not in Europe where they are perceived as gimmicky cars with no status, no innovation, no real chassis/driving engineering. Sales have suffered as a result
At the end of the day, you pay for the great reliability in the complete absence of any driving pleasure, innovations, style, or tier one brand status. Lexus has no premium super car (audi a8), and no motor sport involvement, no performance spec across the lineup (mb amg, bmw M, audi rs).
guy 2: there would be no lexus without mercedes-benz you fool. Grow a pair, deal with the extra cost, and buy the real thing you cheap ass.
One of the best quality cars ever built, engine will last you forever, as it was rated to be the most reliable auto maker.
The name "Lexus" is derived from Toyota's LE(luxury edition cars), US(United States), and X which is taken from the word luxury, with the overall meaning to say "Luxury Edition for the United States. Put the acronyms together and you get "Lexus."
By the way, do you know that Lexus has a car that can do zero to 60 in 5.3 seconds and gets 30 mpg? Find that in any other car if you can!!
I own a Toyota and a Lexus, and they are great cars. I've also owned Fords, Chevys, Dodge, VW, Mitsubishi, Fiat, Buick, Pontiac, and although all were good cars, they did not compare with the Toyota and Lexus.

It is true that Lexus's are really Toyota's in Japan, but that doesn't mean they are cheap. In Germany and most of Europe, Mercedes's are cheap as well, just like some of the Toyota's and Lexus's in America you guys have been referring to be "cheap."
