Lexus Warranty On Shocks


Recommended Posts


I own a 2005 RX330, recently I noticed a noise coming from the back suspension at low speeds when turning. I think this may be the shock absorber. Does anyone know if shock absorbers are covered under Lexus 4 year / 50k warranty. I tried searching the forum and the lexus website.

Thanks in advance,

Shock absorbers are always an iffy warranty item. Most manufacturers consider tham a "wear" item and don't cover them (like brakes and clutches). However, modern shocks/struts should be good for 100,000 miles. Lexus have a "oil leak" criteria for replacing shocks (see LexusTIBs) but it doesn't say anything specific about warranty coverage. This sounds more like a shock mount or spring isolator. I'd have your dealer do the diagnosis and see what they say.
