'09 220D Extended Warranty?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Seems very informative on there... good work.

Right my dilemma is this. I'm thinking of buying a lexus 220d an 09 model. I have been promised an amount of money per week for me to use my own car.

with the repayments of a loan met, insurance, tax, I will be left with roughly £20 a week towards maintenance. I know it'll not cover servicing , tyres etc.

I will be doing roughly 30,000 miles per annum. What is the best way to safe guard myself against a large unexpected expense? or am I safe enough if I'm getting a car with less than 20,000 currently on the clock? Am I best off paying the extended warranty fee and taking the cost of servicing on the chin? what is roughly the cost of servicing?

Thanks in advance for any imput.

Regards,

Walter.

new Battery cost approx £90

small service by indy lexus specialist £50

big service £95

using genuine toyota parts

bridgstone tyres @30k ish per set of four £450.

buy your own warranty if you want peace of mind.

The car comes new with 3 yrs warranty so you are covered anyway until the car is 3 yrs old. Depends also where you are planning to purchase the car, privately, Lexus dealership, car dealer, auction?

Purchased from a dealer, not a lexus dealer. Great thanks... so the lexus servicing is not worth it?

Great does anyone know of a Lexus specialist in Liverpool/Manchester? the NorthWest?

Thanks guys.

I have a 2007 is220d and have had two services by Lexus Bolton - I dont do many miles so get it serviced every 12 months.

The first service was a 60,000 miles and an MOT (£54) and I had two tyres (Dunlop SO01 - £130 each) - total cost £600

The second an Intermediate (70,000 - although I had only done 6000 miles since the last service) and an MOT - Total cost £300

Each time - Lexus collected and returned my vehicle and gave me a Lexus for the day.

I cant fault them and recently they gave me free advice over the phone when my key fobs refused to work

Mine's a petrol (07) bought this April with 30k on it. Lexus Derby supplied with 12 month Lexus (not dealer) warranty. So far I've had 2 VVTi controllers, 4 wheels and the boot lining refitted. The warranty to buy is quite expensive, but I will certainly buy one next year.

Bear in mind that to maintain the warranty you can have servicing done at ANY VAT registered garage.
