2016 RX350 Battery Warranty

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the original battery is under warranty on a 2016 RX350 with 22,000 Miles.  I can't find information about the battery in the warranty manual and I found conflicting info on the web.  Saw one post that replacement Lexus batteries are warrantied 84 months but are pro-rated on a warranty claim - not sure if this applies to the original battery.  It's the weekend so can't call dealership until Monday.

Seems like you would be at the end of most any proration warrantee anyway.  Can’t find any mention of Battery warrantee in my manual.  Probably because the environment that a battery experiences is not under the MFGs control.  Our techs that work in Texas in the Summer and leave their cars running between stops routinely destroy their batteries in one year.  And Walmart shells out the proration every time.

FYI - The Lexus battery was replaced at no charge by Lexus of Tulsa as part of the original car warranty.

Great news that Lexus did that for you.  If you look at all the work a car battery has to do on the newer vehicle, I worry about how long the OEM bat is going to last. I have never had to replace a car battery within 5 years due to low mileage under 15K miles but I wonder if that’s the case with all the added electronic. Time will tell...
