If you’re visiting a luxury car dealership near Los Angeles, CA, odds are that you know why you want a luxury car or SUV. You know you’ll be spending plenty of time behind the wheel, and the idea of spending that time in an oasis of comfort and calm appeals to you. But have you given enough thought to how you’re shopping for a luxury vehicle? Keyes Lexus can help with that.

Car ownership is a lot more than a make, model, and sticker price. We’d bet that you’re careful with your money the rest of the time, and this isn’t the time to stop. That’s what makes Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) so important. It’s a closer look at the long-term cost to own and operate your vehicle, and takes into account costs like fuel, fees, maintenance, and insurance over a five year period.

Kelley Blue Book recently performed their TCO survey. What they found was good news for Los Angeles Lexus fans: the 2017 Lexus GS came out on top of the Luxury Car class, while the 2017 Lexus LS 460/460L topped the High-End Luxury Car class.

What can we learn from this? A few things. First, look beyond the initial cost when you buy a new luxury car (or any other). Second, the lower operating costs and higher reliability make a Lexus car a smart buy every bit as much as the ride quality it offers.

There’s a third thing to consider: choosing a dealership that’s as reliable as the cars they sell. On that count, there’s no better place to buy than Keyes Lexus. To find out more about all we offer our Los Angeles and Beverly Hills customers, visit us today at 5905 Van Nuys Blvd. in Van Nuys, CA.
