Alloy Wheels

I have a small amount of corrosion on a couple of my alloy wheels, the car is only 4 years old and I was going to get them refurbished but I have a mate who has an '03 Toyota Celica and he told me that he went to Toyota last month for a service and mentioned the corrosion and they said there is a lifetime warranty on all Toyota alloys and they will refurb or replace FOC. I couldn't believe this but he showed me the job report and invoice with £0 on it. Shocking I think.

Does anyone know if this is the same with Lexus? If so I would love to get them changed or refurbed.

Thanks in advance, Nick

Ok, I rang Lexus Guildford this morning about this and they said the wheels are only covered for 3 years under the standard manufacturers warranty. No extensions on the wheels.

Although he was willing to take some details down and is going to put a case forward to Lexus to see if they will pay for the refurb/replacements or pay for part of it. He has said the chances of this are highly unlikely due to me being the second owner of the car though. <_<

So for anyone wondering in the future, it is only 3 years unfortunately. I am guessing this is the same for all Lexus dealers across the UK, but I have only rang one.

Yep it is just the manufacturers warranty on the alloys unfortunately, it's the stereo warranty that was extended to 5 years.

The later 11 spoke alloys were actually better on the corrosion front than the original 5 spokes, but alloy corrosion is just something we have to live with in this country - all our cars have corrosion on them, it's not just a Lexus problem.

Yeh true, I have had worse alloys before, they aren't all that bad tbh just a few bubbles here and there. I just thought if I could get them done for free then I may as well. I know a good refurbisher anyway so may get them done. :winky:
