Here’s what a basic Lexus factory warranty covers:
For more details see your Lexus warranty booklet from the dealer. When purchasing a new car, it’s important to read the warranty for yourself to know exactly what is and isn’t covered.
Recent Lexus vehicles are recognized for their reliability. In 2018, Consumer Reports named Lexus one of their top five brands. In November 2019, they also named three Lexus models (Lexus, GX, NX, and GS) in the top 10 most reliable models of 2020. J.D. Power also named Lexus the most reliable carmaker of 2021, and labeled several Lexus models some of the most dependable when compared to other vehicles:
Even though a Lexus is a relatively stable car, it is not unlikely that it will experience a variety of issues over time.
Eventually, your basic factory warranty will expire, leaving you with expensive repair costs for these vehicle parts. With an extended warranty, your Lexus will be covered and you won’t have to worry about pricey repairs. If your Lexus is used, check out our list of the best extended warranty companies for used cars here.
An extended warranty will provide coverage of your vehicle after your manufacturer’s warranty expires. This is a smart investment because it ensures that your vehicle will be protected even though you are not covered by the manufacturer. It’s a way to protect yourself against expensive car repair costs. Instead of paying a repair facility out-of-pocket, you pay a consistent, low payment to your extended warranty provider each month.
There are two types of extended warranties:
Spencer Proctor, Customer Retention Coordinator at CARCHEX, explains what’s covered by an extended warranty:
After your Lexus new car warranty expires, the dealership offers vehicle service agreements for new, L/Certified (the Lexus certified pre-owned program), or used vehicles through Lexus Financial Services.
There are three plans available for new and used Lexus vehicles:
If you have a L/Certified vehicle, your Lexus extended warranty option is called the Lexus Extra Care L/Certified Plan. This includes protection for eligible components and covers the cost of mechanical breakdowns.
All Lexus protection plans includes:
In addition, Lexus extended warranties are transferable at no cost. However, the warranty can only be transferred once from the original owner to a private party.
The average cost of a CARCHEX Vehicle Protection Plan for a 2007–2014 Lexus is just $78 a month.*
Whether you get your Lexus warranty from the dealership or a third-party company like CARCHEX, you can expect the cost of your warranty to be based on these factors:
Keep in mind that if you purchase a warranty from the Lexus dealership, the cost may be rolled into your car financing. That means that you could be paying interest in your warranty. When you’re negotiating the cost, make sure to ask the provider about keeping the payments separate.
In order to keep your Lexus safe after the end of your factory warranty, invest in an extended warranty. If you want to know how to get the best plan at an affordable price, there are a few factors you should consider when looking for a Lexus extended warranty.

According to Rallye Lexus, a Lexus extended warranty could cost around $2,800 to $3,000.
Other factors that shape the cost of an extended warranty are the vehicle, coverage level, and deductible amount.
Similar to the factory warranty on a new Lexus, extended warranty coverage is voided if non-genuine parts are installed on the vehicle. It is also voided by damage from improper repairs.
New Lexus vehicles come with a 4-year/50-mile basic warranty and a 6-year/70-mile powertrain warranty. Lexus dealers offer VSAs for vehicles within nine model years and less than 125,000 miles on the odometer.
These top brands trust and recommend CARCHEX.
