Normally, I like Lexus, but today I am cursing them due to my husband's car needing $5k in repairs. The issues are "known" problems with his model car, but there's never been a recall for either one (one of the issues is truly a safety issue as it involves one or both headlights shutting off unexpectedly). I have an older Lexus that has had virtually no problems in 113,000 miles and almost 13 years. Somewhere between the years of manufacturing my car and his car, their cars became shitty. So my answer today is Lexus, although I think there are probably many manufacturers who actually suck more than Lexus. We might be shopping for a new car soon (for him), so I'd like to know what manufacturers to avoid.
