My experience with Lexus of Highland Park is an absolute horror story. I saw an L certified LS460L/Ultra Luxury Package which is admittedly a hard find. Mind you I live in New Jersey and usually deal with Lexus of Route 10 andam a Lexus owner many times over for some years. Currently have an LS600HL and an RX350, have had numerous LS460Ls in the past. From my experience in dealing with Lexus of route 10, L Certified means you’re basically getting a new car. They take the 161 point inspection very seriously. I have never had any issue whatsoever. I worked out all the details of the deal via phone/email with a salesman named Richard Spinks. Financing approval etc was all done in advance. I was to fly to Chicago then sign and drive. The car fax had a light front hit listed. No airbags deployed, car able to drive at Time of incident . Based on my prior history with Lexus I would of course assumed that meant all prior damage would be fully repaired and the 161 point inspection completed . Upon arrival at the dealer, what I realized after should’ve been the first red flag was that the car was indoors in the back of the service area nicely Tucked away in a corner. Mr. Spinks noted that this was to keep the dust off the car, my reply was I’m going to drive 13 hours I’m pretty sure it’s going to get dusty but I appreciate the gesture. The interior was immaculate and with the lack of lighting inside the exterior appeared that way as well. After all paperwork was complete myself and a friend began our journey back to New Jersey . Once on the open road and out of the Chicago traffic we noticed a humming noise coming from one of the wheels, soon after we stopped at a rest area to get gas. Once in the daylight the swirling on the black paint was horrific and the bottom of the bumper looked like it had been through a cheese shredder . Thankfully, while accompanied by the humming noise the entire way we made it safely back to New Jersey . The next day I received a thank you email from Jim Magnelli, to which I replied briefly going over my concerns. Shockingly I got no reply . The next day I emailed again and once again no reply . The next day I called the dealership and was able to finagle my way past the receptionist and speak to Mr. Magnelli on the phone. As quickly as I got him he made me aware of that he was not the manager that oversaw this deal and he will have that manager call me back first thing in the morning of course that never happened. At this time I decided to open a ticket with Lexus corporate . We also texted the salesman Rick spanks to which his reply was and this is a direct quote consider yourself lucky you got a rare car for a good deal . For those that have chosen to read this far along I do have all of this documentation and would gladly back it up for anyone reached out to me so that they do not fall victim to this dealership . Lexus corporate instructed me to bring it to a local dealership in New Jersey which I did, that being Lexus of Route 10 as I have dealt with them numerous times in the past . I have never seen a group of men more speechless in my life . The vehicle had three bent rims, a bearing that was completely shot . Tires at 4/32 of tread life along with very cut rate bodywork . Following directions the inspection report performed by this dealership was forwarded to Lexus corporate . Shockingly, and with undescribable disappointment my claim was denied stating outside influence, which in their terms means that it could’ve all happened on the way from Ohio to New Jersey . The service staff at Lexus of Route 10, still in shock said that if anyone at their dealership had ever released the car to a client in the state they would be fired without question and mind you I have never wished unemployment on anyone but to a man like Rick Spinks and the other staff members that were aware of the condition of this car I do wish upon them . The Silverlining to this story is that my history with route 10 and they’re pure sympathy for me They took care of the majority of the repairs for me at a Great cost.
