In a recent Yahoo article on what makes retirees happy, driving a Lexus was one of them.

"The unhappiest were more likely to drive a BMW, while happy retirees preferred Lexus. Moss
calculated that over five years, owning a Lexus cost 16% less than a BMW. "

I know of one in particular. :-)

I have had so much fun riding to Tunica and back with my top down that I have had to start wearing long sleeves and a hat. I was getting way too much sun.

Teeheehee

What about C3PO and you get 3 Lexus or Lexi. It could be a Jedi Lexi. OK, that is a tad too silly.

One of my favorite jokes is, you know you are a redneck Jedi when you say "Luke, I am your father......and your uncle"

Yes, Certified Pre-Owned. Huge business for major automakers/dealerships. Factory-backed warranties are included, giving buyers many of the advantages of buying new without having to eat the biggest depreciation hit in first 18 months or so.

Here's a copy of an older Lexus CPO certification checklist, fyi. Along with the inspection/certification, certain requirements related to age, mileage, serious accidents disqualify many used cars from being certified.

Don't bet on it. When I was buying shopping mine, I was negotiating for a CPO and they wouldn't even fix the headlights full of moisture.. Lot of that stuff is fluff.
