    If you want a sensible luxury car, buy a top of the line Toyota Camry or a Nissan Teana or Hyundai Sonata.
    do you think people who actually is able to purchase an LS cares that their car is unknown?... recognition of luxury is in yourself..
    that makes the virtue of being humble....

    i bought my lexus because i wanted to be different... did you think i cared if its an unknown brand?? thats its also the same price as an mb or bmw??

    Well, people buy expensive stuff for the prestige of owning expensive stuff. And they want to make it known to people around them that they have such and such stuff.

    Makes people feel much better when people say,"wow, nice M5 BMW." ... better than meeting up with your friends and then they would comment, "what overprice japanese car did you buy now?"

    Your money, your decision. But how people around react is they're right as well. So don't blame people if they would also have a "different" opinion on your decision on being different. Buying something just to be "different" is usually the worst kind of decision one can use because the popular choice usually have a good reason why it is popular in the first place.

    Nothing personal ... but it's hard not to get personal if you own the car on discussion.

    maybe you are only referring to market share in a subcategory

    but Lexus never became the top selling car brand in the US overall

    Lexus is the top-selling (in terms of unit sales) in the US 11 years straight until Toyota got slapped with unintended acceleration lawsuits.

    In the US, Lexus is perceived to be more reliable than MB and BMW. This is the reason why Lexus sells so well even though it looks boring. They can't even serve the demand for the RX line. In the long run, you will have less headaches and maintenance in owning a Lexus.

    MB for me is overpriced and the seats aren't that comfortable in our S class. You're paying for the brand image only with MB. I would rather buy a Porsche with the same amount and has better quality. The A8 looks very good inside out so far, but haven't seen any on the roads yet.

    I hope Infiniti decides to launch here. I like the FX line more than the RX of Lexus. The upcoming JX is even better since it's a 7 seater.

    hehehe every car manufacturer has its "fail" production years ... even the ferrari 458 has complaints that the engine would suddenly burst into flames :D

    BTT: just pick the new A6... or 5 series hehehe

    so that makes the Lexus what?

    accessible luxury or mass luxury

    a "luxury" brand that targets the US middle class

    kinda like Coach
