Hi Barbara and welcome to the Lexus Owners Club.

Most Lexus dealers now days offer some type of extended warranty. However, those are usually sold with the sale of a new car. Finding a policy to cover your car given it's mileage and age could be a problem. My guess would be that the warranty issuer would make you bring all aspects of the car up to date and in good working order so to make sure the issuer is not taking on any known risk. They also might exclude coverage for items that are subject to normal wear and would have to be replaced over the normal course of driving. Also, again, because of it's age and mileage the cost for coverage might be fairly steep. I have seen premiums run around $2-2,500. a year for a new car.

Unfortunately, your situation has some hurdles. I would suggest Googling car extended warranties and make some phone calls. Check Consumer Reports for any information they may have, and call some Lexus dealers.

Good luck! Let us know how things turn out.

Paul

      Hi,
      I would like to know if there are ways to get extended warranty or mechanical breakdown insurance for my 2007 lexus.

      It initially came with 4 year factory warranty, then i bought a platinum coverage for additional 4 years and is about to end in a month. But on talking to my dealer, i came to know that the warranty cannot be anymore extended. I have only 44k on my car, and would appreciate if there are ways I could add some kinda warranty on it as am not planning to sell it any sooner.

      Please let know of any alternatives to get the EW/MBI

      Thanks

      My 2007 RX350 was purchased in 2011 pre-owned certified with 36,000 mile warranty.
      Need to buy a reliable repair insurance policy.
      Not available at my Lexus dealer in NY (Ray Catena)
      Anyone have a reference for reliable insurance company ?

      Hi,
      I have a GS350 2007, very low milage (~37000 miles), well maintained and never have any major problems. I've been out of the country for over a year and now just come back in town but the warranty was already expired. I wonder if I can still buy the extended warranty from Lexus dealer? If so, what's the expected price and how many years/milage? Thanks a lot...

      I have Lexus original chrome wheels (2007 Es 350) that are starting to peel in well of the lug nuts. Before jousting with Lexus if the warranty covers the wheels I wanted to sound out fellow owners. The warranty excludes "rust" but this is not rust - just bad chrome plating.
