You can call this fact 18 or the hidden fact if you wish. *** So, a while ago sometime around 1920 Jai Singh, Maharaja of Alwar in Rajasthan, India was strolling on the streets of London in casual attire and went into a Rolls Royce dealership. He inquired about the price and specifications of one of the cars and the british salesman treated him like a poor indian citizen and was "thrown out" of the dealership. He returned back to his hotel and instructed his servants to call the same dealership and tell them that the Maharaja of Alwar city is interested in purchasing some cars from them. He showed up in his royal attire and the red carpet was rolled out for his visit. He chose 6 luxury cars and paid the full amount in cash. He then arranged for the cars to be shipped to India where he used them to sweep the streets and collect garbage. The word spread like wildfire and this dropped the sales of the luxury car maker significantly. The people at Rolls Royce realized their mistake and sent an apology to Jai Singh along with 6 other Rolls Royce cars free of charge! He accepted their apology and stopped using the first 6 cars as trash disposals.

For the full article, visit http://www.clublexus.com/how-tos/a/lexus-5-tips-to-keep-your-car-running-for-a-long-time-367535 Cars were not meant to run forever, but you can make your Lexus run longer if you maintain it at regular intervals. Many people fall into the trap of thinking they are saving money by stretching out or skimping on routine maintenance items altogether. But spending a little now can certainly prevent spending a lot later. Other than maintenance, there are several things that you can do to keep your ride running strong and long into the future. Here are the top five things that you should be doing to make your Lexus last. Tip One - Follow the Maintenance Schedule Making sure that you always take your Lexus in at the recommended intervals is the smartest thing you can do. These intervals are designed so that your car stays running smoothly for a long time and are the best way to head off any problems that may arise. During these maintenance visits, besides oil changes and tire rotation, your mechanic will be inspecting brakes, fluids, electronics and a whole myriad of things that wear out or commonly break down. Think of these regular maintenance intervals as regular insurance policies that will keep you on the road for a long, long time. Tip Two - Check Fluids and Tire Pressure Regularly Checking your fluids is the easiest thing that you can do yourself that will help keep your car running for a long time. The main fluids to check include transmission fluid, power-steering fluid, engine oil, and antifreeze and brake fluid. Another thing you can easily check is your tire pressure when the tires are cool. This may seem like a trivial thing to do; however, incorrect air pressure in your tires will lead to premature wear, and possibly uneven wear. This can cause more issues with your alignment, tie rods and suspension that can cost big bucks down the road. Tip Three - Don’t Ignore Noises Some models of Lexus have a regular popping noise while cooling down after a run. But once you first notice a strange, new noise, you should not ignore it. A high-pitched squeal could be an indication of a slipping belt, for example. An ignored slipping belt is going to break. A broken belt can't be ignored for too long because your car is going to overheat and stop. Listen to your car and check out any sound that just isn't right. Tip Four - Drive Gently Calm driving greatly increases the duration of your car on the road. Shifting smoothly, coming to a complete stop before going into reverse, and stopping completely again before going back into drive all reduce the stress on the transmission by a huge amount. Likewise, don't slam on the brakes or stomp on the throttle. An occasional panic stop or full throttle response to avoid something bad is one thing, but if this is your regular driving style, your car is going to have more downtime than up. Tip Five - Find a Mechanic You Trust Having a mechanic you trust goes a long way in keeping your car on the road for a long time. If you trust the guidance your mechanic recommends, you won't have that nagging feeling that you might be getting ripped off. Your mechanic will be able to tell you what is coming down the road to better prepare you to handle the more expensive maintenance visits that you otherwise might try to stretch out or ignore completely. A good mechanic will find things that a 20-minute oil change center technician just isn't trained to find. Do your homework, get references, and find a mechanic as if you were searching for a babysitter for your child. Your hard work and effort will pay off in the long run.
