well, as most of you know i blew my clutch a coupel weeks ago at spring valley. i have been carless since, and bought a new rps clutch, etc, etc. well i figured fock it. what can i lose if i drop it at lexus and try to get it fixed under warranty? all they could say is no. well, i dropped it, and they just called to say they will replace everything. its a one time deal they said. i think it helped that i knew more about the is300 than the service foreman. i had to explaint he cdd to him and everything else. he said they never get 5 speeds in there at all. he seemed very impressed with my manners and explanation, and he actually had about 10 guys come check the car out. they were snapping pics of it too. i felt liek a rock star for a second. hahahaha. so good things happen when you least expect it. if somethign goes wrong, try and get the dealer to fix it. i couldnt be happier, i just saved at least a grand. ray catena definitely mad emy day...if anyone needs great service, try and go down there, they were nothing short of wonderful. ill even take the time to write a letter to lexus praising their service department.
