SO WHAT IF IT’S A COMMERCIAL!!!

If Malcolm is intrigued then so am I!!! You can’t deny that you didn’t learn anything new and my goodness, the Japanese are synonymous with stellar service so I’m pretty sure the things here are true. You aren’t mad cause the things are false but that a writer was compensated for writing 😂 an in-depth, first hand experience of LEXUS. That is what you call the industry coming to you… no one made you listen and no one MADE YOU BUY A LEXUS. I actually learned more about cars in general so THANK YOU MG & I PRAY YOU HAD A BLAST!!! 💚💚💚

Fantastic Podcast!!

True story: In 2016 my father was on his deathbed and beckoned me closer to speak to him. I thought he was going to tell me he loved me even though he wasn’t good at showing it. No. He told me “Always buy a fuel efficient Toyota and change the oil regularly.” This was basically the last thing he said to me.

I was obsessed with Chevy and American Muscle cars at the time, but now scrupulously adhere to my dad’s advice. This podcast helped me fall in love with Lexus products and get excited about them for my dad’s sake. Last month, I purchased a 2019 Lexus LS500. Now I am relistening to this podcast.

Shameless Lexus commercial

Shame on Gladwell for selling out like this, in the worst way possible. Hope he got paid lots of money for this dribble.
