    a "luxury" brand that targets the US middle class

    kinda like Coach
    mass luxury or accessible luxury? people who can buy a lexus also has the capability to buy a bmw or mb...
    every LUX brand has its equal entry, mid and high level units...

    why? does the RX cost less than an x3??
    it appeals to people in other ways LOL

    brand perception puts Lexus below European luxury brands even if Lexus products have better quality

    if you simply want quality and aren't after brand image, then Lexus is perfect for you

    Again, that is the point, lexus has other appeal to people... Rather than just saying something is nothing just because its unknown... Badge snobbery is funny in some points

    I'm personally biased towards Mercedes Benz when it comes to high end vehicles. Having grown up with the brand i like seeing how their models age very gracefully; something i would look for in a car usually since we tend to keep cars for a very long time (kahit luma na, its still doesnt look old or past its time).

    I mean no offense to Lexus owners but my observation is the character of the brand and design is very attached to Toyota. After ageing the model several years, seeing one on the road is just like seeing an old Camry or Crown; its not yet as distinctive as when you see a Audi, BMW, Merc., or Range Rover. But i agree, Lexus has very good cars no doubt and will run against your top EU brands in terms performance, comfort and luxury delivered; it just lacks the character that the EU brands exude. In the end, it still depends on what the buyer wants and prioritizes.

    finally a open minded explanation... every lux car maker is great... just depends on what matters to you.. rather than saying something sucks even without even owning one :D

    kudos

    I don't think it's a matter of badge snob... more of a brand appeal and image.
