Lexus Safety

Most of you know about how Lexus is a great vehicle when it comes to comfort, value, technology, and luxury.  Every so often, we are reminded that Lexus is also one of the finest vehicles to be in should you ever find yourself in an accident.

The following pictures show the damage on one of our service loaners that was involved in a frontal impact collision.  As you can see from the pictures, the damage was severe.

IMG_2443 IMG_2446 Lexus Crash 01 Lexus Crash 03As you can see, the front of this 2013 RX 350 was completely destroyed.  What you don’t see is the guest that walked away from this accident because the damage was where it was supposed to be!  The damage, while intense and severe, was kept to the engine compartment!

In fact, all four doors still opened and closed as if nothing had happened! We think that this example illustrates the amazing amount of time and engineering skill it took to limit the damage to the non-human areas of the vehicle.

The RX 350 can be replaced.  The guest inside can not….

Luxury Experience Hollywood Style

Associates Brian Ard and Dan Watkins had the pleasure of assisting John Travolta and his crew around Wichita recently.  Mr. Travolta was warm and friendly, and openly chatted with both Associates.20130504_185435 20130504_185448Although Mr. Travolta was in town for only a very short while, he left many Wichitan’s gasping when he walked by and waved at them.  In fact, several young ladies screamed right after he walked by.

Dan asked him if that ever got old, and in his best Danny Zuko voice (Grease), he simply replied “It’s cool.  It is what it is.”

Well said.
