Part one of a series on transmission repair for luxury vehicles explores repairs on automakers Infinity and Lexus.

The marketing strategy was to target the premium vehicle segments in the United States that would not have otherwise fit in with Nissan’s more mainstream image, and partially influenced by the Plaza Accord of 1985.

As Infiniti is a sub-brand of Nissan motors, Lexus is a sub-brand of Toyota. Of the two, Lexus is the number one selling luxury brand in the world. Like Infinitis, Lexuses have an alphanumeric model name, and they are the same age, coming into existence around the end of the 80’s. Lexus has also expanded into the hybrid market, with the inception of it’s new model the GS 450H. Lexuses have an 8-speed automatic transmission.
