Retiement Considerations

Recommended Posts

Retired and bought a Lexus.

Here are some things to look out for:

If you are you going to travel, Lexus service is very limited outside of big city area.

We bought a Lexus in Thousand Oaks, Cal. They would come to our home in Malibu, about 18 miles away, and pick up the car. They would deliver it when service was completed. However, now that we spend half our time in Pennsylvania and the other half in an area about 120 miles north of Phoenix, the nearest dealers are 1 ½ and 2 hours away respectively. Because the car was purchased in Cal. there is no courtesy pickup other than from the dealer who sold us the vehicle. Now we are faced with driving times that are considerable, especially when it is necessary to leave the automobile overnight. Thus to bring the car in, leave it overnight and pick it up a day or two later when the problem has been corrected required six hours of driving time. So before you buy a Lexus consider that if you are retired and traveling, service could be a BIG problem

You could always consider bringing it into a Toyota dealer, I am sure that there must be at least one of those in the Sadona area. If you decide to live in a rural area you must make some concessions!

My point was more along the grounds that it is rediculous to even post this. For a person to move to a rural area and then complain that they do not have the same access to facilities that they have in a urban area such as Los Angeles,,, Must be a Democrat, because they want it both ways. My other home is on the big island. When I go there I expect not to able to access the same things that I have access to in Austin. I knew that before I purchased, and accepted the reality of the situation.

Oh man funny but cruel....That was not nice, remember even if, and I say that fondly, he is a democrat, that is not how to treat your brother on a Lexus site...Remember we are the true compassionate folks...(Independent)...Spoken from a conservative...Borders, Language, culture...
