Lexus Warranty

Lexus offer one level of extended warranty cover but have slightly different criteria for vehicle age on them.

The 12 month policy is for vehicles less than 7 years old and the 24 month policy is for those less than 6 years old.

All vehicles must have done less than 140,000 miles to qualify. For cars that are going to exceed 60,000 miles in the first 3 years (i.e. the new vehicle warranty period) purchasing a Lexus extended warranty before exceeding the mileage limit can cover the rest of the 3 years plus the additional 12 or 24 months.

The hybrid drivetrain on certain new Lexus vehicles are covered for 5 years/60,000 miles.

The Lexus extended warranty package includes car hire (up to £75 inc VAT per day for up to 5 days) and hotel expenses (up to £150 inc VAT) if needed, MOT cover and Lexus Roadside Assistance.

Lexus Extended Warranty Questions:

As with all warranty products there are a number of questions we would advise asking.

Key points to consider when comparing quotes:

  • The Lexus warranty literature suggests that this is a manufacturer-backed, not an insurance warranty.
    • In which case, the Financial Ombudsman cannot help resolve any dispute. What is the Lexus complaints procedure?
  • How does Lexus deal with consequential loss, in particular on hybrid vehicles?
    • So what happens if a non-warrantied part should damage a part of the hybrid system, which has a longer warranty?
    • And vice versa - if a covered part damages a non-covered part. What would Lexus pay out on in these situations?
  • Does the Lexus extended warranty also cover the hybrid system longer than the initial 5 years?
  • What period do you need cover for?
  • This will affect the price of independent warranties who offer discounts for 2 and 3 year cover.
  • How does Lexus define ‘wear and tear' and will it pay out on covered parts no matter why they have failed?
    • Their literature says: "Whatever model you drive, the extended warranty covers the cost of most parts and labour - just like the original warranty on a brand new car."
    • So the warranty will certainly pay out for manufacturing defect, or premature failure, but will it pay out on ‘worn parts' or parts damaged by another part failing (consequential damage)?
