The Lexus slogan is commonly known as “The Pursuit of Perfection.” The key pictured belongs to my buddy Kei and the pursuit was undertaken through the Lexus of Cerritos service department. Apparently the key casing became separated during a routine oil change. In order to “fix” the issue, they used utility tape to bind it together. Perhaps the use of black tape is what makes this the pursuit of perfection. Because if the tape were another color, that clearly is not pursuing perfection. Another shocking revelation? The service department didn’t even bring up this issue. They figured they performed such a perfect job in repairing the key, Kei would not notice it. Hardly the case.
