    Back in the very early 20th century, entrepreneurs went into business building cars all over the country. I don't know the number, but it had to be in the hundreds. Then there were mergers and collapses, the great shakeout. And this was followed by the Great Depression which killed off a bunch more.

    Comfortable seats? That's fine. After getting burned on both ventilated leather and grey leather in our model X, we are now equally concerned with durability. If an SUV Lexus' leather can be wrinkle-free at 10 years, then our model X should have been able to last longer than a few days before it's started wrinkling, & needed to be redone. Sometimes, one learns they are likely to fall upon serious disadvantages to being an early adopter - and going back to buying one or two-year used can be advantageous.
