Lexus - A Pain In The Ar*e


Recommended Posts

Hi All.

I own a Lexus IS200 2005, and someone crashed into it the other day. To cut a long story short, a car was shunted into it, by a stolen car.

I rang my insurance who said i could claim of the stolen car (the guy who owns it) and so i rang Lexus Stockport (where i got the car) and they could not offer my a car while it went in for repair. So i rang someone else, and they said it may take at least a month before work could start, as they needed a poilce report (as it was stolen) and some facts that they would get there money.

All in all, not a happy man because Lexus sold me the car, but aint intrested as soon as i need something doing to it - if im not paying!!!!

why would they need the police report? it has nothing to do with them - i can understand the payment part tho.

But on the other hand what type of insurance do you have?? 3rd party or comprehensive? If you have comprehensive I would be slightly ****** off and get back to your insurance company as they have to claim off the other driver/owners insurance company, you dont wait until the claim has gone thru and you have recieved the money before you can get your car repaired.

You're having a go at Lexus but I can't see why? You need to deal with your insurance company - they will recommend a repairer and arrange a hire car. They will then pursue the car that ran into you for damages. You have the right to demand the car be taken into a Lexus bodyshop but then, depending on your policy, your insurer has the right to withdraw the offer of a courtesy car.

I can choose where it goes, as it is not my fault.

So, why will adamsons do it ASAP, while Lexus cant because they need a hell of a lot of documentation to back up the car was stolen, and they will get there money.

Not to ars*d that i aint getting a Lexus anyways, as i do not like the new ones, and will not purcahse on in the future.

so i rang Lexus Stockport (where i got the car) and they could not offer my a car while it went in for repair.

When my IS went in for a bumper repair in December I had a loan Skoda Fabia (haha better than nothing) for a week.

Not entirel sure of your circumstances though.... have you fallen out with your dealer before the incident? They are usually pretty good about this sort of thing.

Don't take it out on the car you'll be hard pushed to find anything else that has what the IS has to offer and has uniqueness on the road.

Lexus Manchester use:

Manchester Car Refurbishment Centre Ltd

Tel: 0161 835 9888

as their bodyshop. Maybe if Lexus won't help then you can just contact MCR direct and arange the repair? They do have great courtesy cars to - A Corsa! :lol:

I have had work done from MCR, as has Gord and Wosket and many others, always tip top. Just ask for John. I have seen some of the paint jobs done by Lexus Stockport..... :sick:

Thanks,

Anees

PS Are Adamsons the ones off Huddersfield Rd in Oldham?

when we had an incident in our volvo we were able to get the repair done where we wanted, but like lexus volvo could not offer us a car for the full duration of the repair, however the insurence company did provide us with a courtesy car (hired from one of the big chains) and then claimed that back from the other insurance.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
