Hello. I wonder if anyone out there could give me some advice/ their opinions.
I've just bought a June 2014 CT200h Advance from Lexus Motorline Cardiff. I was offered an extended warranty which would add 2 further years' cover to the standard Lexus approved-used 12 month cover for a cost of £495. I declined, but am now wondering if I should take them up on it, and if so, how long the option is open for.
I hadn't realised (was it explained? Not sure...) that the warranty, whether 12 month or extended, would include the equivalent of a high level of AA breakdown cover worth £120 a year. This starts to make me think that I should go for it. Also, the Lexus website suggests that the cost can be paid monthly, with no interest-penalty. (This also was not mentioned). Having approached the dealership with my revised thoughts, they tell me I will have to act quickly if the car is not to require an additional inspection prior to an extended warranty being issued. I can find no mention of this on the Lexus site. Could anyone give me their thoughts about the merits of paying the £495? I'd be very grateful!
The car, by the way, is an absolute joy!
Hi all, just treated myself to a CT200h and would like to know if I need to buy a warranty as I bought it privately. It has done 46k and been serviced by Lexus.
I had a quote from 'Warranty Direct' for £395 main dealer and £379 independent garage.
The reason I bought a Lexus is because I know they rarely break and this will be the last car for me but I know service or breakdown costs will be astronomic!!! Even though I generally only do about 3k miles a year!!!
any advice would be fantastic please.
I need some help.
I have a Lexus 450h 2006. I have 113k on the clock. The hybrid battery has failed. I have extended warranty, but they are refusing to cover the cost of replacing the hybrid battery stating that it's the age of the vehicle and high mileage and is not a mechanical failure.
My warranty expires in November 2106 but back in May 2016 before its 10 years anniversary I got sold another 2 years, so I am covered until 2018.
I am in in disbelief as it costs £2400 to replace the hybrid battery. I am arguing the following points:
1) In the warranty terms & conditions it doesn't say if the vehicle is aged, parts won't be covered. It says, they won't cover if it its wear & tear. Can this be classed as wear & tear?
2) If they are using this ageing argument, they should clearly state this that hybrid batters won't be covered if over certain age, no?
3) I reported the Hybrid battery problem before the 10 year anniversary of the vehicle as I had some alarms come up. The dealer than said alarms were cleared and test were inconclusive. Less than 6 months later the hybrid battery has failed.
I would sincerely appreciate your help guys to sort this out.
Newbie here, first post.
Unfortunately my 4 year old low milage RX450h has developed a fault that I think should be covered under warranty but my dealer has other ideas. Basically I'm looking for some opinions or any info that anyone can offer.
The error code is P0A45 and presents itself as "Check Hybrid System" and "Check AWD System", other than the warnings the car is driving exactly as it was before, hybrid battery charging, electric motors are being used etc. The fault code points to "Drive Motor B Position Sensor Circuit", to me that is part of the hybrid system and should be covered. Incidentally the figures we are speaking about are £1900.
Anyone any thoughts? Any help much appreciated.
Any opinion would be welcome ...
For a while now - and I suspect others do too sometimes - my RX makes a rumble sound, from the front?
I hear it when driving at slower speeds,straight, e.g., at 20 mph, but the road does not have to be particularly bumpy.
I suspect, based on reading and research, that it could be shock/top mount, related?
I am wondering... should I take it to my trusted independent garage, or should I take it to my equally trusted, local Lexus dealer.
It was bought from Lexus up North, about 9 months ago, and is still in its first year of Lexus warranty. So I'd rather keeps the costs down if possible...
Does anyone have a view?
