Quite true, but have you ever priced German parts? They're just as bad. This is where domestic manufacturers shine. Regardless, Lexus makes wonderful luxury autos. Amazing that they've only been around LESS than 20 years and make a car better than Mercedes IMHO.

The only German car I have owned is a 1967 bug. And parts were every where and reasonable. I am sure MB is much different. My wife traded her MB300SD in on the LS 400 prior to our marriage. She feels the Lexus is superior.

Speaking of diesel-electric hybrids... I saw one with my own eyes a couple of weeks ago. Here in CT there is a public transport bus (full-size) making normal runs. Gm is making hybrid diesel buses, and those buses are operating in areas like Seattle, Washington (USA).
