Potential car purchase - Missed service. How important?

Recommended Posts

Good evening all,

Off to look at a CT200H in the morning at a main dealer but just found out it missed its service at 30k miles and has just had its Full 40 done at 37k. So not a full service history. I’m told it won’t affect the warranty they’ll give it but I’m thinking about future resale value. Just checked and the MOT was performed 9 months ago at 31k miles so mileage appears to add up ok.

Anyone have any thoughts on how important the missed service is?

Thanks in advance.

Personally wouldn't say its overly important,main thing is that it eventually got serviced,on the other hand the word full service history has been abused over the years and not many cars these days can claim to have a full service history if gone over with a fine comb(as at when due,according to schedule, everytime regardless) etc

Cheers all. Bought the car today. Advance Plus in Sonic White Two Tone with Black Roof. Very, very tidy car. It has a spare wheel in the boot too which was a nice surprise.

Just got to wait a week before I can get it.

Yep.... New  MOT. Just wondering where I stand on the warranty should I wish to extend it before the 12 months warranty runs out. 

It's a Lexus Warranty provided by the main dealer. Will Lexus sell me an extended warranty if one service was missed by a previous owner? Cheers.

I just did.

Any Lexus under 10 years old which has covered less than 140k miles at point of sale from Lexus main dealer qualifies for purchase of extended warranty. Irrespective of service history.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
