Appropriately named Darth because of its Obsidian exterior and black leather interior,  Keith tells us he has been turning heads ever since he left the lot!

Detroit Michigan Lexus Dealers Announce Impressive Worry-Free Results in Cars.com Report

Lexus-RX-cars.com-worry-free-indexDetroit Michigan Lexus dealers in Metro Detroit are proud to announce that Lexus vehicles earned the top three spots in the Cars.com Worry-Free Index just released.

Metro Detroit drivers have enough to worry about–health, work, and the holiday season that is fast approaching.  How reliable and dependable your car will be shouldn’t be one of the things on your mind.  To help consumers pick a vehicle, Cars.com has created an index of the top 15 cars that leave owners worry-free.

Joe Wisenfelder from Cars.com says, “It’s all about saving people money, or at least about helping them predict what it will cost to own a given vehicle.”  It was no surprise to the Meade Lexus team that Lexus vehicles took the top three spots.

  1. 2014 Lexus RX 450h (385.7 points)
  2. 2014 Lexus ES 350 (382.0 points)
  3. 2014 Lexus RX 350 (375.4 points)

Scores were compiled based on hundreds of Cars.com consumers and years of data from reliable sources, J.D. Power and Associates and Consumer Reports.  Five-year estimated maintenance costs and manufacturer warranties were also factored in, and crash testing reports were checked to make sure that none of the vehicles on the list performed poorly.  The top score that a vehicle could earn was 425 points.  Only good data and complete data was used so Cars.com could be sure that the cars had a solid track record.

5 Scenic Drives in Michigan

tunneloftrees-michigan-lexus-blogOctober is the perfect time to enjoy one of many scenic drives in Michigan. Throughout Michigan the temperatures are starting to drop, which means the changing colors of the leaves won’t be far behind.  Meade Lexus encourages you to soak in these beautiful Michigan views with a trip to one of these five scenic routes.

Tunnel of Trees

This first drive starts as you leave the beautiful town of Harbor Springs, located on the lower peninsula of Little Traverse Bay.  For 27 miles along Highway 119, travelers can enjoy the large over hang of trees that creates a tunnel-like experience. Anytime you choose to take this drive it will be a good one, as the road also follows along Lake Michigan.

Frankfort to Ludington

Head over to Lake Michigan on the west coast to enjoy a 60-mile drive along State Road 22.  The route is anchored between two of Michigan’s most popular cities and also boasts: lake views, beaches, Betsie Riverstate Game Area, Big Sable Pointe Lighthouse, and Ludington State Park.

River Road

If a quick jaunt with water views is what you’re looking for, then head over to River Road that follows along Au Sable River in the Northeast part of lower Michigan.  Travelers can start at Oscoda where the mouth of the river is located.  Scenic views and recreational access points can be found along the route.

 

Northern-Michigan-lexus-of-lakeside

The Road to Hell

The road to hell is actually prettier than one would think!  This stretch of two-lane paved highway was named because of the Michigan town Hell, which is a midpoint on the 10-mile, tree-covered drive.  Although it’s popular among motorcyclists, anyone looking for a relaxing afternoon drive would find just that along the stretch from Gregory to Pinckney on county Highway D-32.

Upper Peninsula

Known to Michiganders as simply the U.P., a trip in Michigan isn’t complete without visiting the top of the state.  Starting in Manistique, travelers can explore 88 miles of forested areas along Lake Michigan, on U.S. Route 2, and up to the town of St. Ignace.  The many shorelines and scenic overlooks will make a great picnic stop if you find a warm and sunny day to take this drive.

If you have a scenic drive suggestion, please let us know for a future Meade Lexus blog post.

Meade Lexus Dealers Hope to Keep Sunroofs Open a Little Longer

Your Detroit Lexus dealers, Meade Lexus of Lakeside and Meade Lexus of Southfield, hope these sunny days continue so we can all enjoy a warmer fall than last year.  We’re sharing some of our favorite summer photos as inspiration for Mother Nature.

Tracey picked up her 2014 Lexus GX460 at Meade Lexus of Southfield.  Her consultant, Johnnie Dinkins, was thrilled that the weather matched their mood.  Speaking of a match, Stacey’s bright apparel would look great next to the new exterior color for the upcoming RC F sport–Solar Flare.

The Crafted Line Scheduled to Arrive at Detroit Lexus Dealers in November

crafted-line-vehicles-detroit-lexus

The Crafted Line made its debut at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and is scheduled to arrive at Detroit Lexus Dealers this November.  Only the most beautiful and rare automobiles are invited to appear at the famed Pebble Beach Golf Course each year and Lexus was honored to be part of the festivities.  Created to celebrate 25 years, the custom line showcases the unparalleled craftsmanship and design that is Lexus. Five Lexus models will boast a unique contrasting appearance that promotes a sense of elegance and sport:

  • LS 460F sport (rear and all-wheel drive)
  • GS 350 F sport
  • IS 250 F sport
  • RX 350 F sport
  • ES 350

The contrasting exterior colors provide a statement that refuses to be ignored.  The body, which is Ultra White, gets accents of Obsidian on the door handles, side mirror, and grill–other Obsidian accents will vary by model.  The interior also features contrasting colors in Black/Scarlet or Black/Cabernet throughout the stitching, seats, headrests, and door panels.  Navigation and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert come standard, but each model may offer additional convenience features.

Lexus also partnered with TUMI, a company producing premium travel and lifestyle accessories for more than 35 years, to create exclusive luggage that complements the vehicles.  A two-piece set comes with each vehicle, and two additional pieces can be purchased to complete the set.  A Meguiar’s New Car Kit also comes complimentary.

Complete pricing details will not be available until closer to the Line’s launch in November, but the Line will begin at an MSRP of approximately $42,000* (for the ES 350).  Contact Meade Lexus of Lakeside to stay up to date on pricing and launch details as they become available.

Detroit Lexus Customers Can’t Wait to Get Out on the Road

We can’t blame our Detroit Lexus customers for wanting to get their new vehicle out on the road as soon as possible.  Just like any family, though, we always look forward to visits from our Meade Lexus family members, so don’t forget to stop back in soon!

Sharon looks like the freshman heading off to college for the first time in her new Lexus RX.  We know she’ll be back– we just hope she doesn’t bring a pile of laundry with her…

Hanan traded in her 2011 ES 350 for a new 2015 GX460.  We hope she’s enjoying summer and has found some toys to take advantage of her vehicle’s 6,500-pound towing capacity.
