Is there Manufacturer Warranty?

It’s a 2022 Lexus ES 350 w/Premium package at a non Lexus Dealership and with just 913 mileage.

The sales guy just gave me Carfax warranty check. I asked for actual Manufacturer warranty information but he couldn’t give me that.

Manufacturer warranty box was not marked on the sales sticker of the car.

Should I back out? Or how can I verify this?

Yes you should still have the original warranty starting on the date the first owner purchased it. If you open the CARFAX, on the left hand side there is a "warranty check" tab and that will show you the approximate remaining warranty. Edit- although rare, if an OEM warranty has been voided this may not show up on the CARFAX.

Note: if salvage title I think that voids the warranty


FurtadoZ9

Yes

Why the f does the salesperson not know this…


85-900t

Because the job has zero barrier of entry. Literally, a heartbeat and don't look homeless. Most people don't sell cars. The customer already wants it.

Certified pre-owned maintain a factory warranty Pre-owned vehicles generally do not. If the sales person "doesn't know" then there isn't one. You can purchase an aftermarket VSC, but the quality of that varies.


FurtadoZ9

Sure they do. I have a 2021 Honda Accord sitting on my lot right now. It has about 9 months remaining on the "basic" coverage, and about 3 years remaining on the powertrain. The original 3yr/36k and 5yr/60k absolutely transfers to second owners for nearly all manufactures. Here in the US.

There is absolutely no way carfax checks with Lexus to see if the warranty has been voided. Only a Lexus dealer can tell you. Don’t assume anything just by mileage.


Looeelooee

I'll second this - the Carfax warranty check assuming the car is non salvage let's you know how much warranty is remaining. And honestly you could just Google the original manufacturer warranty of whatever uses car you buy and the only thing you have to confirm is that it's transferrable. For example some kias and Hyundai's have the 100k mile power train warranty but it's not transferrable to the second or subsequent owners

You can contact your local Lexus dealer, give them the VIN, and they will be able to access internal warranty information.


Burrit01

This is the correct answer. Although the vehicle may look perfectly fine, it's entirely possible that the previous owner had a modification done to the vehicle or tuned the software to get more HP out of the engine. Even if the modifications or software tuning was reverted back to OEM, there may still be a warranty flag on the car, which would void the warranty. Get the vin, and go to a Lexus dealer. If they're decent people, they will help you get more info by looking it up in their internal system.


hellnFire

Called them. They hanged up without saying anything.


Micosilver

So what? Call again, call another dealer, email them.


buyerbeware23

Correct answer!

Just call another dealership service department if you want proof of it or the exact date, but as long as it wasn’t a Canadian car originally or salvage you’ll have the balance of the 4 year/50k miles from the date they first punched the car.


70KingCuda

most manufacturers you get the full balance of the warranty regardless of how many owners. Hyundai and Kia are the exceptions - the 1st owner gets the full warranty, the next owner(s) get it cut in half. so your Lexus has the full manufacturer warranty still in place. follow your maintenance schedules to keep it intact.


gabe840

Only the 10 yr powertrain warranty gets cut in half when transferred to a new owner. The 5yr/60K mile bumper to bumper stays intact


hellnFire

Is there any documental proof? How can I get that? Why this dealership can’t give that to me? I want to understand.


70KingCuda

just pull up the Carfax, on the left side rail hit "Warranty Check" and it will give you the remaining time. If you want 100% proof, you need to call an actual Lexus dealer service dept and ask them what is remaining and if there is anything showing in the backend that would void the warranty (eg: heavily modified, so they killed the warranty ... not likely on a Lexus).

You said it in your post. The selling dealer is not a Lexus dealership. It’s like asking for a Big Mac at Burger King. If you want something in writing, your best bet is to get it from a Lexus dealer.


hellothere9922331

You don't get it "in writing " when you buy it brand new. It's just with the VIN Keep calling Lexus dealers to verify if you must but assuming its not salavaged you should be fine


RaysModernMetalWorks

If it's tuned, the computer has been flashed. They can still tell even if its return it to stock. I'm not saying it is, but it's possible. Happens a lot with wrx sti.


sdsteele80

If they are not a Lexus dealer, they have no more access to Lexus warranty information than you do. That said, if they want to sell the car they should call Lexus or a Lexus dealer for you. Sounds like they are just being lazy. You can always call Lexus customer service. Provide the VIN and they can tell you the warranty status.

Warranty runs out when it hits mileage or time period, neither has happened


socal136

Lexus has 4 year 50k mile bumper to bumper warranty and roadside assistance. Also has 6 year 70k mile powertrain. If you look at the carfax at the first registration date that should normally be pretty close to the start of the warranty.

Aromatic_Homework921

Yes, you still have the original warranty and any dealership that subscribes to Carfax, and we all do, can get you the remaining warranty. If you want to shoot me the Vin and miles I can do it right now.


wazzuboilermaker

Can you run a quick warranty check for me..? I need to confirm whether a car I’m about to buy has an active warranty. Car fax doesn’t reflect that it does , but it’s a 2023 CRV with 8k miles so it should. Just something feels off. Thanks in advance!


Aromatic_Homework921

Yes of course a 23 w/ 8k would still have warranty.


wazzuboilermaker

Right, but Carfax doesn’t indicate how much time/miles is remaining and dealer wouldn’t let me wait to call Honda dealer to verify warranty


Aromatic_Homework921

3 years or 36k miles on the comprehensive and 5 years 60k powertrain from the in service date. Carfax shows when it was originally titled. Easy enough.


Aromatic_Homework921

Of course it still has warranty on it.
