THE Lexus do Brasil announced that it is starting to offer a five-year warranty on all its vehicles sold in our market. The action begins in August. Today, Toyota’s premium division offers the RX 450h, ES 300h, NX 300h, LS 500h and UX 250h models here, all hybrids.
The new five-year coverage has no mileage limit for personal use, and for commercial use, the limit is 100,000 kilometers (whichever comes first). This condition is valid for all vehicles produced and sold from 2020. Previously, Lexus models had a four-year warranty.
However, the warranty period for the electronic components for the hybrid system remains the same: eight years or 200,000 km, whichever comes first. While with a standard warranty there is no mileage limit for a specific use, a hybrid configuration always has a limited number of coverages.
For the basic warranty to have full coverage and validity, the vehicles must be in normal use and have their regular maintenance performed at a Lexus dealer network, within the time and mileage limits, as specified in the owner’s manual.
