What is Lexus L/Certified?

Silver Lexus ES 350


Port Washington drivers who appreciate the finer things but don’t want to spend a small fortune find the exceptional blend of comfort, quality, and a fantastic price point of a Lexus L/Certified vehicle appealing. This unique designation is the Lexus certified pre-owned guarantee of quality, thanks to a rigorous series of inspections and tests, along with other essential benefits. Read on what it takes to make a Lexus L/Certified vehicle with the Rallye Lexus specialists.

How Does a Lexus Become L/Certified?

While any owner of a Lexus is qualified to offer a Lexus second-hand, it takes an authorized dealer to offer Lexus certified pre-owned vehicles. See below for the necessary qualifications of a Lexus L/Certified:

  • A used Lexus must be six model years old or newer
  • The Lexus must have less than 70,000 miles under its belt
  • The vehicle must pass a 161-point inspection from factory-trained service technicians that covers every aspect
  • Passing a rigorous road test conducted by certified technicians

If any part of the car cannot be repaired, it does not become Lexus Certified. Without this designation, there are also a number of other benefits a Manhasset driver won’t have access to.

The Benefits of L/Certified Vehicles

The Lexus warranty that comes with Lexus certified pre-owned vehicles is an essential part of the unique advantages they offer. You can expect:

  • Complimentary Maintenance Plan covering the first four basic factory-scheduled maintenance services for 2 years or 20,000 miles
  • 24/7 roadside assistance
  • Unlimited-mileage warranty up to 6 years, created through a balance of new car warranty (4 Year / 50,000 miles) plus 2 Year / Unlimited-mileage L/Certified warranty

Comparing Lexus L/Certified to New and Used Vehicles

When considering purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, keep in mind some of the pros and cons of the various options:

  • New Vehicles: While new vehicles have a higher price tag, they offer the most flexibility in terms of leasing vs. buying, and they give you access to the latest technologies and the assurance that comes with a brand-new model.
  • Used Vehicles: Those that don’t have a L/Certified rating have much lower prices and a larger variety of vehicles in terms of makes, models, features, mileage, and age.
  • Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles: L/Certified vehicles split the difference with a lower price than a new vehicle, but more assurance thanks to the warranty, defined vehicle history, and the peace of mind with the quality inspection.
