Lexus truly does have amazing, industry-leading service. My wife's 11-year-old RX has been absolutely bullet proof. And customer service is unbelievably good. But man they are expensive.

I had one handle that was like thar - rear seat on passenger side. Other side and both front seat handles are fine. Dealer is fixing it. Definitely not how it's supposed to be.

Well, the dealer had a Chrysler rep look at my JGC on Friday. He said to replace the head. Sounds like bad valve guides. They'll have it for a few more days. In the mean time, I'm driving a crappy...

Lots of JGCs in my area, but had only seen a couple of 2014s until last Friday. Then, on my way home from work, I saw three deep cherry red 2014s (while driving mine). Kind of surprising.

Just installed the update. Seems Chrysler's servers are doing better; the update downloaded fairly quickly. Everything went very smoothly. Did not even lose the XM presets.
