Emission Control Warranty For Used Is?
Posted 30 April 2007 - 10:02 AM
The first time I took it to Lexus, they told me that they did not have to honour the warranty because the previous owner had not gone into Lexus for the regular maintanence check ups. Does this sound right?
Because of this, over the last two years I have had to pay out of pocket for maintanence, which has been just replacing two O2 sensors.
I just had the CEL come on again, only about a month after the last O2 sensor replacement. It gave me three codes (p0441, p0442, and p0446) All of these are related to the evap emission control system (vent circuit malfunction, purge flow fault, and leak).
I read on another forum that federal regulations mandate that all vehicles are covered by a 100,000 mile emission control warranty.
Does that mean that I should be covered for emmisions control repair? Or will Lexus try to tell me that they do not have to honour such a warranty?
Have something to contribute?

If the previous owner had records of service, it didn't have to be done by a Lexus dealer to maintain the drivetrain warranty.

there are after market warrantees available still. Mercury offers a 6 year 100,000 mile warrantee that cover everything except user wear items such as tires and brake pads, etc. etc. I got one with my IS 300. What makes this warrantee awsome to have is that you can take your car to any mechanic you want to. All the shop has to do is call the number and they get a credit card authorization directly from Mercury on the spot. And there is a 0.00 $ deductible as well. I've never been so happy to have bought that " extra" warrantee before.
