Lexus LFA

This is the type of bullshit that I simply cannot stand. Lexus, maker of uber-cushy luxury sedans decides to build a super car called the LFA. They then decide to charge $375,000 for it, a car that keep in mind has absolutely no pedigree whatsoever. They then, in their initial offering to U.S. consumers, tell us that “we”, the American’s can only lease it for a period of two years so as to “keep the price speculators out of the market”. Then, once that two-year lease period is up, the original leasee of the car would only then have the option of purchasing the car outright.

Believe it or not though it gets even better. According to Autoblog.com Lexus has now sent a letter out to dealers telling them that they can in fact sell the car outright to U.S. customers, BUT if the customer decides to sell the car within the first two years of ownership they MUST sell it back to their original dealer for the original sticker price or fair market value, whichever is lower. WHAT THE F*CK IS THIS!?!? Oh, and by the way, if the owner does sell the car without giving the dealer the right of first refusal then guess what… they owe the dealer the difference between the original purchase price and what the car was actually sold for, and oh yea… any legal fees as well. Talk about total horseshit.

I’d like to know where Toyota gets the balls to conduct commerce like this. Sure the LFA is a great car. It has the looks, the sound and the performance that a modern day super car should have, but by taking this elitist approach to a car that is in no way proven to consumers, I feel that Lexus is setting themselves up for failure. I have no doubt this will come back to haunt Toyota in the future because simply stated, nobody likes to be told what they can or cannot do with their own property.

    Yep. That’s bullshit. As much as I enjoy the styling of that car, its record on the track (where it counts) speaks for itself.
