That's definitely odd, what's up with that?

Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

What is it with women and Lexus'? They make overpriced uninspiring cars. Am I the only one who thinks they make the most bland cars on the market?

Sounds like someone needs to go for a test drive


Not that I have a great frame of reference but I've driven both BMW and Lexus and I absolutely loved driving the Lexus. If I ever make enough money I'll probably try to buy a Lexus sedan or a Hyundai Genesis if they're still a great bang for the buck luxury car by then.

We'll see. My signing bonus wasn't exactly Lexus worthy but whatever...but where the hell am I gonna find a ribbon big enough to wrap around a car?
Get her a conflict diamond then when she's so happy about what you got her break the story about where it came from. She'll be so distraught she'll never want anything expensive again.

Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

I drive a Lexus, but it wasn't a gift, and there was no bow.

Hate the commercials too, but love the car.

I test drove RX a few years ago and it wasn't that special of drive. These luxury cars are overrated...a fully loaded Nissan Murano will do just fine.

Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

I too say f Lexus commercials they suck. But im with d-bag in that they have changed the perception of their brand to more of a luxury car, but most people still dont see them in the ranks of BMW or Mercedes.

There is no chance i would ever drive a BMW or Mercedes or any other pure luxury car, i would just feel like a complete ass hole riding around all the time in one of those things. I would however rock a lexus and maybe an Acura just because i dont think either can ever been true luxury cars. They are in the sames ranks of Cadillac or Lincoln; just the flagship cars of a bigger brand. If money was no serisous issue i would still rock a top of the line toyota over a lexus as my daily driver all day. Id just feel like a d-bag (not you dirt) rockin a car with a fancy name as my primary vehicle. Its the same to me as the people who have fancy rims on their commuter car.

Regardless what kind of car brands you like or dont like or the image you want to present or dont want to present, i think these commercials are ridiculous. If someone gives me a car im probably gonna be happy, but only if it was a windfall and the other option is nothing.

But if my spouse just goes out and buys a car for herself without consulting me first im gonna be a little pissed, just like i think she should be pissed at me for bringing a car home without consulting her. "I just thought we talked about major purchases like this first honey?" If she buys one FOR ME im gonna be furious. Several girls have said the same thing to me when watching the commercial.

A car is a personal choice. There are tons of different shades of paint, a couple interior colors, tons of options, different tire packages, mud guards, all sorts of stuff. Maybe i just need to man up and realize that only guys make the decisions and that a wife has no say in something like a car, house or any other major financial decision. Does anyone know if they have this commercial but its the wife that buys the guy a car? That would just be ridiculous right?

it's a purse they can ride around in. and while the majority of women i've meant don't know the first thing when it comes to cars, they know it's expensive and it makes the other women jealous. Which is enough to know they want one.*

Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

My Dad is in the automobile business (currently VP of Service at a Jaguar/Land Rover dealership), but in years past the dealerships he's worked at had BMW, Lexus, Porsche, Audi, Lincoln, Mercury, so I've had the fortunate opportunity to have been in many makes and models of each brand and even driven a few. Aside from the 911 and 944 I rode in, my absolute favorite is the LS line from Lexus. To me, that car is absolutely stunning and they keep making it better and better. Some of the other models have their Toyota equivalents, and I would certainly opt for the fully loaded Toyota over the entry level Lexus. But the LS is just awesome to me.

When my grandfather could afford it, he bought a Cadillac DeVille because that's what he wanted. My DeVille is the LS. When I'm in my late 50s and I want to buy a car, that's what I hope to be able to afford.

saden - When the RX first came out, I thought it was cool. Then I rode in it, and it completely lost its luster. That thing sucks.

Oh, and yes the commercials are quite annoying...

I'm Honda for life. It looks more like a luxury car lately as their designs change from year to year and that's fine with me. The only thing I might switch Honda for is a Scion, Toyota or a Nissan.

Ultimately I want something thats gonna get me from point A to point B, look decent and for Godssake, doesn't cost an arm and a leg to repair.
