If your vehicle fails a smog-check test

Lexus LX / Lexus LX Owners Manuals / Owner amenities / If your vehicle fails a smog-check test

If your vehicle fails a smog-check test, you may make a claim under the Emission Performance Warranty. To do so, take your vehicle to an authorized Lexus dealership and present a copy of the smog-check test report.

Also, take your maintenance records in case they are needed.

If your claim qualifies for coverage, the dealership will repair your vehicle within 30 days (unless a shorter period is required by law). If your claim is denied, Lexus will notify you in writing of the reason within the same period.

If we fail to do so, we will repair your vehicle free of charge. The only exceptions allowed are when you request or agree to a delay, or when a delay is caused by factors beyond the control of Lexus or the dealership.
