Similar to the announcement by UMW Toyota, Lexus Malaysia has also introduced a new five-year, unlimited mileage warranty for all its models sold in the country, effective April 1, 2016. The new warranty plans replaces the outgoing three-year/100,000 km term.

Lexus now has the same warranty period as BMW Malaysia, though the latter also offers a five-year/100,000 km free scheduled service package. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia gives a four-year, unlimited mileage warranty, while Audi Malaysia has a four-year/120,000 km coverage.

As expected, the vehicles must be serviced every 10,000 km or six months (whichever comes first) at authorised Lexus service centrec within the entire period to keep the warranty valid. The extended warranty is wholly undertaken by UMW Toyota Motor.

“Vehicles brought in by parallel importers may or may not have warranty offered. Therefore it is always better to buy vehicles that are imported by an authorised distributor such as UMW Toyota, where the vehicles are covered with a full five-year warranty, giving customers a piece of mind,” said Akio Takeyama, Deputy Chairman of UMW Toyota Motor.

Existing Lexus owners with vehicles currently covered by the previous three-year warranty can upgrade to the new five-year, unlimited mileage warranty with a one-time-charge, depending on the model. Customers who sign up will also receive a complimentary Lexus service package.

The offer to upgrade your existing warranty is only valid until September 30, 2016, so do contact your preferred Lexus showroom or service centre to get exact pricing of the warranty upgrade package.
