I got my car from fremont, so im gonna service my car there. In addition, their service is is excellent. I dont know where you got your car from, but people should(usually) take it the place they purchased it. I have seen and experience instances where the cars wasnt treated well, so to speak, cuzz it wasnt purchased at their location. And i say (usually) cuzz they should unless ....Service Just Sucks.

I dont know about the others but I know Fremont is good. If im not mistaken they were noted as the top dealer in sales and/or service.

Fremont....is My final Answer.

Thanks a lot guys. I bought my GGP at Pleasanton, but I live in the middle of the three Lexus dealerships so just trying to decide where I should go. Do you wait around for your oil change? Or do they give you a loaner?

I just took my car to Pleasanton for 5k service. I got a loaner for the 1k service, but they refused to give a loaner for the 5k service. I was arguing with them, and they told me "we don't give out loaners for the 1k and 5k service, because it was only a 1.5 hour service" :roll: Regardless, I still got the service done there, cuz I was too lazy to make appointment wiht other places, I just wanted to get it done and over with.
Overall, servicedidn't seemt too bad, I waited for only 40 minutes, and it was done. No burnt oil smell after oil change too, kinda made me wonder if they even bothered to change the oil or not. The engine compartment, looked a little too clean.

Does Fremont Lexus sell PLP products? I live a minute away from there. That is cool to know that PLP uses Fremont Lexus!

Wow! That is a pretty strong accusation. Be careful.

Yup, I would have to say that Fremont is the best. They even came out to my place in the city to perform my 10k service. The mechanic was knowledgable too and we chatted for a while too. I went to Lexus of Concord to do some of my 15k service (change my transmission fluid, Diff oil, and rotate the wheels). They charge me $45 just to rotate my wheels and they made a mess. There was oil and grease on the rims and transmission fluid on the hood and inside the engine compartment.

Don't know anything about Lexus of Fremont, but if there is one thing I do know, it's to avoid Lexus of Concord for anything. Sales, service...they suck at everything. I haven't seen one post here that said anything good about Lexus of Concord... :shame:
