Warranty

The Lexus Warranty is designed to give the reassurance that you would expect when buying an Approved Pre-Owned Lexus.

All Approved Pre-Owned Lexus vehicles are supplied complete with one year's manufacturer's equivalent warranty with unlimited mileage cover. All vehicles with less than a full year of manufacturer's warranty remaining will require a Mandatory Warranty to be applied for. Vehicles under 60,000 miles and with a full year of manufacturer's warranty remaining do not require a Mandatory Warranty to be applied. Your local Lexus Centre will arrange all this for you. Any Lexus vehicles regardless of age or mileage qualify.

All Approved Pre-Owned Lexus Car Warranties have the same level of cover as the Lexus new vehicle warranty, with the exception of batteries, interior trim and corroded exhausts. The exact level of cover is detailed on the reverse of the warranty application form and also within your handover pack you receive when purchasing your vehicle.

All Approved Pre-Owned Lexus Car warranties include wear and tear cover for batteries, exhausts and wiper blades for three months or 3,000 miles.

Preparation & valeting

Before you take delivery of your Lexus, it has been subjected to a long and comprehensive vehicle preparation. The vehicle preparation process encompasses five distinct stages:

  • Independent vehicle history check.
  • Independent vehicle mileage check.
  • Service history check.
  • Vehicle preparation and valeting (MOT if applicable).

Once the history and mileage checks have been passed, the car is fully prepared to Lexus standards. We carefully inspect the car's overall condition - outside, inside and underneath.

Outside:

  • Vehicles should meet the current MOT requirements. Brake efficiency tests are replaced by evaluating braking performance on road test, headlamp alignment is replaced by visual inspection.
  • Audio System must be in full working order and good condition.
  • Tyres must be of the correct size and rating, locking wheel nuts are acceptable providing they are in a serviceable condition and the correct locking key(s) supplied.
  • Window glass must be in good condition and security etching must be correct.

Inside:

  • Any marks, tears or burns must be repaired.
  • All controls and switches must operate to original specification.
  • All warning lights and gauges must be fully functioning and accurate.
  • Steering wheel and column condition/adjustment must be correct.

Mechanical:

  • All engine components must be in full working order.
  • Steering, brakes and suspension must be in a condition representing good maintenance by previous owners.

Valeting your Lexus:

  • All Approved Pre-Owned Lexus vehicles are thoroughly cleaned inside and out before being presented for sale.

History & Mileage Check

The Vehicle History Check utilises data from many sources including the DVLA, Police National computer, finance companies, ABI, BVRLA, VMC, RMIF and Motor Codes to name but a few.

With access to over 63 million records the following checks are made:

  • Cross referencing between Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and registration number.
  • Vehicle description check.
  • Finance data check/high risk data check.
  • Registration date and year of manufacture.
  • Stolen vehicle check.
  • Write off/condition check/scrapped indicator.
  • Number of previous owners and owner change dates.
  • Plate change warning, including full plate history or any previous colour changes.
  • Import/export data.

As with the Vehicle History Check, the Independent Mileage Check is vital as it gives both you and Johnsons Lexus the confidence that the vehicle mileage has been independently verified. Johnsons Lexus carry out a full mileage verification check. All checks include the provision of a branded pass certificate that you will find inserted in the relevant place at the back of your handover pack.

Approved Service History

All Approved Pre-Owned Lexus vehicles must have a service history that is approved by Johnsons Lexus retailing the car.

Requirements for an approved service history:

  • Johnsons Lexus is completed by a Lexus qualified technician and have all the applicable stamps and signatures.
  • Services for qualifying vehicles must be within 1,000 miles either side of the scheduled service mileage limit or within 2 months either side of the specified time period.

Vehicles with an incomplete or non Lexus Centre service history can only qualify as an Approved Pre-Owned Lexus once Johnsons Lexus completes the most recent major service.The Centre must then update the service record book to provide to you.
