  1. According to KBB, my LS went from $8k to $7k from summer of 2009 to winter of 2009 (6 MONTHS ONLY!). Then, the recall, although there weren’t any actual proof that any LS models were involved, affected the value of my LS even more - LOST ANOTHER $1000 IN JUST ONE MONTH!

  2. According to the Intellichoice findings, the recall effect on resale value of directly affected vehicles is actually within normal fluctuations in value:

    I am hopeful that once the media frenzy blows over, and time passes as people separate the hype from reality, that the long term effect will be negligible.

    Congrats to the RX and IS for winning their categories, and to the RX for its double award.

  3. Well, congradulations to the RX and IS.  Unfortunately this pander’s to the idea that Lexus is a ‘value brand’.
