I need a new water pump 2010 gs450 52000 miles I'm waiting to hear back to see if its covered under the extended warranty just wondered if any one's managed to claim for a water pump.

That is strange that your water pump failed so early. Did you put any strange coolant ?

If you have had the car regularly serviced by Lexus then you should have no problems with a claim. A water pump failing after 52,000 miles cannot be classified as 'wear and tear'.

Apparently water pumps on the IS are usually good upto about 90-100k so assuming the same sort of materials used and quality control then this does seem rather early!!

The water pump should be.  The lady at lexus UK told me everything that isn't designed to wear during it's operation on the car is covered.  Things designed to wear include brakes, clutch etc.  Oh and shock absorbers!!?.  Apart from that everything else is covered!

 

That aside, I think you should be fine with a waterpump and if not you should kick up a fuss!

I had my two rear shock replaced under extended warranty at around 45k miles!

Does it really need new calipers? 

Or are the slider pins just dried out?  In which case, it's a cheap fix :wink3:

The 'new calipers' gag seems to be a regular revenue stream for dealers.

Not that you'll care much if the calipers are covered under the warranty.
