Toyota Lexus Logo
Being a loyal and repeat Toyota and Lexus owner, it’s no surprise to me that Toyota and Lexus ranks high on’s 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. Dependable and reliable are just some of the reasons why I prefer to buy these cars. Another great reason is the fact these cars hold their value well, even beyond the five year mark. In comparison to their American and European counterparts, it does cost less to maintain these cars and for good reason. They’re engineered very well. ┬áIt’s not uncommon to see 10, 15 and 20+ year old Toyotas and Lexus’ on the road today. Many of them have well over 100,000+ miles and still run without any major issues. Toyota and Lexus placed in almost every category. Congrats to Toyota and Lexus for this important milestone!
