“Lexus has earned a well-deserved reputation for turning out utterly refined luxury vehicles. The hallmarks of this brand are a quiet, well-crafted cabin, a plush ride and commendable performance from powerful, nearly silent engines.”
Those are strong words of praise for Lexus from Edmunds.com! You will find many other industry experts, and consumers, who would be inclined to agree with them. Lexus has become a world-class luxury car brand; which should not be surprising considering their parent company is the long-loved and admired Toyota. Although Lexus vehicles may not be as exciting as other luxury vehicles, they consistently offer quality, dependability and comfort.
Lexus dependability is not just a perception. It is a fact. The 2015 J.D. Power U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (which examines problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year-old vehicles), shows that Lexus vehicles earned the rank for most dependable for the fourth consecutive year! Lexus earned this spot since they only experienced 89 problems per 100 vehicles! This is far below the industry average of 147 and even pretty far from the second best brand on the list – Buick at 110.
With all these wonderful facts and reviews about Lexus vehicles, do you even need to consider a Lexus Extended Warranty or a Vehicle Protection Plan from autopom! for your Lexus? Yes. Why? Because even the most reliable vehicles will still eventually break down, and a luxury vehicle like Lexus can cost more to fix than your average car. According to an August 2012 article in Consumer Reports: “Most Lexus models have relatively high maintenance and repair costs…despite their excellent reliability. The Lexus ES350 racks up an average of $2,300 in maintenance and repair in the first five years, about twice what you'd pay on a Buick LaCrosse.”
So even if that wonderful Lexus of yours is one of the most reliable vehicles on the road, chances are good that you will be looking at a steep repair bill when something does finally break down. And don’t forget the inconvenience to you and your busy schedule of having a car in the shop. That’s where a Lexus Extended Warranty or a Vehicle Protection Plan from autopom! can come in handy! With a Vehicle Protection Plan from autopom! you get a lot more than just the repairs (click here to see).
