Lemmings are converting from cars to CUVs. Nothing new here really, but I am surprised by just how many Plastic Lexus get moved when there are so many superior Luxury auto's available.

You can say what you want about the Lexus (and personally I really do not like their current design language) but for at least last 10 years Lexus is number one in reliability and number one in dealer service and experience.  And I bet many people appreciate that.

I understand that, and yet what I have seen of their auto's seems to contradict that. My aunt is stuck on Lexus only and yet seems to have hers in the dealership for many issues from falling headliner to trim pieces coming off. Yes she is one of those people that trades it in every 3 years and yet with the amount of visits to the dealership, I am just surprised that people buy it. I guess they get their number 1 rating for taking care of the customer. Good for them.

You judge by one example of your aunt, awesome.  I can counter it with my father-in-law that has 2011 RX350 and never had an issue with it.  Anyway, there are statistics for that sort of thing.

I understand what you say and I use my Aunt as one example but have seen this in many friends Lexus and when my sister went car shopping. The RX was a plastic nightmare that she found so many poor fit and finish and total lack of comfort compared to others out there. She looked and test drove Infinity, Acura, Mazda and found what to her was the best luxury in Buick.

I have to say spending the whole weekend on various auto lots, test driving and digging into the fit n finish and what is considered Luxury was eye opening as there is clear disconnect between what people say (reports & Marketing) and what is actually out there on the lots.

I am glad your father-in-law is happy with his RX350.

I think a better way to clarify the Lexus quality thing is they build an excellent product that is stuck at a point in time where others are pushing beyond where Lexus is.

I get that some people are happy with a set standard, where others want more. 

I want more than what Toyota / Lexus offer for not only myself but others.
