"the only major thing that Lexus has invented is the LS that virtually parks itself. Big deal. the S-class virtually drives itself. it will accelerate and come to a complete stop by itself. imagine driving in traffic and all you have to do is steer. beat that. Why does no one know about this, because Mercedes doesnt have to make cheesy commercials to show off their technology.'
You are misinformed. The LS ALSO virtually drives itself, using Dynamic Radar Cruise...it will acclerate and stop all by itself. And it has INNOVATIONS which the Germans can only dream of--it reads the lines on the road, and has pedestrian and object detection capabilities for front and rear, plus night vision. The Benz has night vision, but none of the other features!
Before you go off on your so-called enthusiast snobbery take a look at the growing numbers of politicians, CEOS, athletes, celebs, and yes even heads of state that are driving Lexus cars. Sure Mercedes is a lot older and more geriatric, but history will only take you so far. There's room for others.
"i'd like to see them sell a $190k SL65 wannable. no one would buy it. why? who the hell is gonna spend that much money on a japanese car that has no history, no prestige."
Hah, nice try. There are already 1,850 preorders for the $120K LS 600h L, and the $150,000-ish LF-A is coming out next year. It also has a waiting list.
Deny all you want, till the facts hit you in the face.
Nice try sticking to your old ideas about cars. But if Urban Dictionary wants to accept an uninformed attack rant against one car brand, they should also accept a rebuttal to those arguments. The facts as I've stated in my definition are quite clear--just google them and you'll find reputable sources to back them up. Lexus is certainly not the supreme luxury make in the world, but they can't be dismissed as outright marketing only either. They are an up-and-coming marque, ignore them at your peril.
Japanese prestige Car, big into bling
in the US.
Best quality car built.

Luxury car manufacturer under Toyota. 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 in America you guys have been referring to.
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."
You drive a Lexus? Damn you're rich!
Luxury Cars that a lot of rappers like Biggie Smalls rap about
Them niggaz ride dicks, frank white push the sticks
On the lexus, lx, four and a half
Bulletproof glass tints if I want some ass
Umm the person above is an idiot because Lexus had innovations in the early 1990's that Mercedes didn't come out with until the late 90's. Mercedes is a nice car but for the money, Lexus owns them and every other car maker in their class. Suck on that
Lexus had Car Phones, Memory Seats, and Heated Seats way before Mercedes
There are worse things than being a Toyota. You could be a Mercedes.
The fact is, Lexus has an incredible quality reputation that is not declining. Mercedes' reputation for quality has been declining in recent years. The acquisition by Chrysler did not help. Chrysler, like other American cars, aims to appeal by promoting their powerful engines. The really good car manufacturers promote their quality and safety first.
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.
