Most frequently asked question: Is it true that Lexus cars has so many problems?
Answer: No, in fact the opposite is correct. The average consumers must understand this rule: There is no such thing as the perfect car, there are only less or more problematic cars.
And luxury cars has more problems than those of medium-price cars.
I have been in this field for almost 30 years now and I can say that Lexus cars is still thee best high end car in the world, they are still much better engineered by far and have much less issues compare with German cars which its
electronic components and accessories starts going bad just after a few months old!! That's why Lexus cars resale value retains the highest compare with other luxury cars .
