In the Kelley Blue Book 2019 '5-Year Cost to Own' Awards, Lexus took home the honor of Best Luxury Brand, with four Lexus vehicles ranking first in their segments:
Lexus UX: Best Luxury Subcompact SUV/Crossover Lexus NX: Best Luxury Compact SUV/Crossover Lexus RX: Best Luxury Mid-Size SUV/Crossover (2-row) Lexus GS: Best Luxury Car
The KBB 5-Year Cost to Own Awards considers the total cost of vehicle ownership beyond monthly payments, including insurance, fuel costs, state fees, maintenance, repairs, and depreciation, all important factors when it comes to the overall scope of vehicle ownership. Toyota also had three vehicles topping their segments, including the Prius c (Best Hybrid Car), Tacoma (Best Mid-Size Pickup Truck), and Tundra (Best Full-Size Pickup Truck).
For the eighth consecutive year, Lexus topped the annual J.D. Power U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS). By testing the dependability of 3-year old vehicles over a year's span, J.D. Power can help consumers confidently decide which cars to purchase in a market where cars are more reliable now than they've ever been. The 2019 VDS proves Lexus is the best choice, with Toyota tied for second place with Porsche. Toyota Motor Corporation also received four segment awards for the Lexus ES, Lexus GX, Toyota Camry and Toyota Tundra. To view the 2019 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, visit: https://www.jdpower.com/business/press-releases/2019-us-vehicle-dependability-studyvds.
Driving With Temporary Dealer Plates In California Now Illegal
As of January 1st, 2019, vehicles sold in California by licensed dealers and lessor-retailers-like Longo Lexus-are required by law (Assembly Bill 516) to display a DMV-issued temporary paper license plate or permanent license plate. Not that we don't want you to show off where you just scored your Lexus from, but we really don't want you getting in trouble for it either (and we'll still hook you up with a Longo Lexus license plate frame). The state of California is doing this to help crack down on toll evaders and to assist law enforcement and parking/toll agencies in safely identifying vehicles driving without license plates.
When purchasing a new vehicle from Longo, we're required to print and issue temporary license plates to you and attach them to the vehicle before leaving our campus;...

For the first time, San Gabriel Valley residents can experience an enchanting display at The Arboretum in Arcadia, known as Moonlight Forest.

2019 is going to be a huge year for Longo Lexus. We're celebrating 30 years in the business, as the number one Lexus retailer in total new vehicle sales in the Western Area, and exciting changes are coming to mark this milestone. We're starting by making striking changes around here. This includes a major remodel to our Sales showroom, which is already well under way, and to say we're excited about it, is a huge understatement.
With our last showroom update completed in 2004, our plans to remodel the Sales showroom has been in the works for a long time, and ultimately completes and complements last year's renovation of our Service Lounge. We've broken down walls and stripped the original façade to prepare our guests and Sales team for more room, a more modern design, more of what yo...
With every Lexus vehicle produced, it's assigned a two-letter acronym/designation with actual purpose, a definition that's representative of the model it appears on. Though it's easier to call it simply by its model name, we thought it would be fun to let you know what it means by vehicle and category type.
