Emission Defect Warranty
Lexus warrants that your vehicle:
 • Was designed, built and equipped to conform at the time of sale with applicable federal emissions standards.
• Is free from defects in materials and workmanship that may cause the vehicle to fail to meet these standards.

Federal regulations require that this warranty be in effect for two years or 24,000 miles from the vehicle’s inservice date, whichever occurs first.

However, under the terms of the Basic Warranty, Lexus provides coverage of four years or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Specific components may have longer coverage under the terms of the Powertrain Warranty.

Additionally, components marked “8/80” in the parts list on pages 23–24 have coverage of eight years or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

Emission Performance Warranty
Some states and localities have established vehicle inspection and maintenance (I/M) programs to encourage proper vehicle maintenance. If an EPA-approved I/M program is in force in your area, you are eligible for Emission Performance Warranty coverage.

Under the terms of the Emission Performance Warranty and federal regulations, Lexus will make all necessary repairs if both of the following occur:
 • Your vehicle fails to meet applicable emissions standards as determined by an EPA-approved emissions test.
• This failure results or will result in some penalty to you — such as a fine or denial of the right to use your vehicle — under local, state or federal law.

This warranty is in effect for two years or 24,000 miles from the vehicle’s in-service date, whichever occurs first. Additionally, components marked “8/80” in the parts list on pages 23–24 have coverage of eight years or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
