Lexus adopts five year unlimited kilometre warranty in Australia


After years of maintaining coverage of four year/100,000km, Lexus Australia will adopt a five year, unlimited kilometre warranty from January 1, 2022, backdated for all cars purchased in 2021 as well

Japanese luxury manufacturer Lexus has adopted a longer five year, unlimited kilometre warranty in Australia.

The switch to five years of coverage will officially be flicked on January 1, 2022, but Lexus will backdate the change to include all new Lexus vehicles purchased in 2021.

This marks a change from the outgoing four year/100,000km vehicle warranty that was once luxury segment-leading but in recent years lagged behind the five year/unlimited kilometre coverage offered in Australia by Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Land Rover, Jaguar, and Genesis.

The decision brings Lexus into line with parent company Toyota‘s Australian warranty coverage.

At the same time, the brand will extend warranty coverage of high-voltage batteries in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full battery electric vehicles to 10 years with unlimited kilometres – up from eight years/160,000km.

More to come.
