Lexus Manufacturer Warranty Details

All new vehicles come with a basic warranty (often referred to as bumper-to-bumper). Some vehicles also include a longer (very) limited powertrain warranty.

Basic Warranty:
This is the specific terms established by each manufacturer to repair vehicles for a specified mileage and/or time period. All factory installed parts are covered against defects and workmanship. This "bumper-to-bumper" warranty is always the most comprehensive.

Powertrain Warranty:
The portion that begins after the basic warranty expires. Typically, this covers only the engine and transmission. Many powertrain warranties are not transferable to new owners. There is no extended powertrain warranty on the MINI.

Manufacturers offer other warranties on new vehicles. Some examples include:

Federal Emissions Warranty:
The Federal Emissions Warranty guidelines are based on federal regulations and apply to vehicles in all 50 states. Vehicles are covered by two types of emissions control system warranty, "Emission Defect Warranty" and "Emissions Performance Warranty".

Depending on the state you live in, the Performance Warranty is for 3 years/50,000 miles. The Defect Warranty is generally consistent with the manufacturer's bumper-to-bumper warranty with certain parts (catalytic converter and electronic emissions controls (PCM). Please refer to your owner's manual for your exact emissions warranty.

Corrosion Warranty:
Covers rust-through perforation on sheet metal for a specified term. Surface corrosion from scratched, nicks and dents are not covered. Please refer to your owner's manual for your exact corrosion warranty.


Bumper to Bumper Warranty
The coverage lasts for 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Wheel alignment and balancing, however, are covered for 12 months or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first.

This warranty covers repairs and adjustments needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship of any part supplied by Lexus

Powertrain Warranty
The Lexus Powertrain Warranty lasts 72 months or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first. Except for the situations listed on the Basic Warranty page, this warranty covers repairs needed to fix defects in materials or workmanship of any component listed below:
