Lexus LF-A Owners to Receive "Flying Doctors" Roadside Service?
We don't know too many people who are concerned about Lexus reliability, but in an effort to keep up with the Gottis and increase its street-cred among European exotic car makers, 2012 Lexus LF-A owners may soon receive a generous and unparalleled roadside coverage program. According to Spanish motor blog, Motorpasion.com, Lexus will dispatch a team of "flying doctors" to rescue an LF-A owner whose car has broken down, become stranded, or has its feelings hurt by a new Pagani Huayra. Lexus will station a team of engineers across the European continent to aid stranded drivers in the quickest means possible – including literally flying to meet them. If an engineer cannot fix the vehicle, Lexus will provide the driver with a GS450h loaner and a plush room in a local five-star hotel. The report sounds too good to be true – and it may be, since we haven't yet heard any confirmation from Lexus – but it sounds just plausible enough, considering the company's history. When Lexus expanded into the United States, it provided unheard-of warranty coverage and customer service for LS 400 cars. Today, that attitude has turned into a game of one-upsmanship and is one we're hoping may soon benefit even us common folk. No news on whether this service, if it exists, is making it stateside.
