Autotrader calls it Best Luxury Certified Program

With 30 years in the car business, I had many choices when it came choosing which car to sell. Recently Autotrader confirmed my decision to become a Lexus salesman. For 2016 Autotrader chose Lexus as the best luxury certified program on the market today. As a result, it knocked the 2015 winner Porsche to the number two spot. Below you will discover the benefits to you of driving Lexus certified, the best luxury certified pre-owned.

Lexus calls it Lexus L/Certified

Lexus’s CPO program, called L/Certified, is the best in the industry among luxury brands. Lexus CPO or Certified Pre-Owned vehicles must meet high standards of reconditioning at a Lexus dealership. Technicians can only consider vehicles under 6 years old and below 70,000 miles for certification. Once selected, Lexus technicians put each pre-owned vehicle through a comprehensive 161 point inspection. This is to insure the highest quality certified automobiles. I have watched the reconditioning process and it is impressive.

The Lexus warranty

I like that the L/Certified warranties begin after the Lexus new car warranty ends. Even the Toyota certified program where I came from did not do that. Other CPO warranties run at the same time as the remaining new car warranty. The Lexus new car warranty is four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Unlike other warranties, the Lexus L/Certified warranty starts after your new car warranty ends. At the end of the factory new car warranty you then receive two years with unlimited miles of protection. Plus, you also receive two years or 20,000 miles complimentary, scheduled maintenance with your L/Certified Lexus vehicle.

Lexus L/Certified travels with you

And there is more.  Customers are provided with a service loaner car to drive at no cost when their Lexus must be left for repairs for half a day or more. Plus, you are covered nationwide when traveling outside your hometown. When traveling, you are also compensated for trip interruption. Lexus will pay you up to $200 per day for reimbursement of your food and lodging expenses.

Whether you are driving local or on an out of town trip Lexus has you covered. Each Lexus L/Certified vehicle comes with six years, unlimited-miles roadside assistance. L/Certified roadside assistance covers you for any breakdowns even running out of gas, a flat tire or lockout. You can see why Autotrader picked Lexus as the best Luxury certified program on the market for 2016.

When you consider the thousands of dollars saved by buying a certified Lexus, there is no better value on the market. Maintenance services included with your L/Certifed purchase could save you as much as $2500. As a salesman in the car business half my life, I have never seen a better certified program. I have worked with Honda, Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz and Toyota and Lexus L/Certified is by far the best program out there.

My advice to you

My advice to you is that if you are considering purchasing any new or used vehicle you must first check out L/Certified by Lexus. Get the most for your car buying dollars with a one, two or three year old L/Certified Lexus. In conclusion, I find that many certified Lexus cars and SUVs are priced for less than other new cars and SUVs.

Because of the Lexus certified program and the number one spot on J.D Powers Vehicle Dependability Study you can’t buy better value.
