What is Lexus L/Certified?

L/Certified Banner


Many Tampa drivers have asked the team at Lexus of Tampa Bay about Lexus L/Certified vehicles and what the designation means. Lexus L/Certified vehicles are pre-owned Lexus models that meet specific criteria and have passed a rigorous multi-point inspection. Lexus L/Certified vehicles are sometimes also called Lexus Certified Pre-owned (CPO). They are some of the highest quality luxury vehicles available around Town 'N' Country. Learn more about the Lexus Certified Pre-Owned program here with Lexus of Tampa Bay, and then visit us to experience the Lexus difference.



How Does a Vehicle Become Lexus L/Certified?

Lexus Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, or “Lexus L/Certified” models must not be over six years old and must have been driven 70,000 miles or less. Lexus Certified vehicles must also pass a 161-point inspection to receive the designation. This inspection includes evaluating things such as:

  • Checking the engine, cabin, exterior, electronics, safety feature, and undercarriage
  • The vehicle also must pass a comprehensive road test conducted by a Lexus Certified Technician

Benefits of Lexus Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

When Brandon drivers choose a Lexus Certified Pre-Owned vehicle they receive the standard CPO warranty of up to six years/unlimited mileage. These are some other Lexus Certified advantages:

  • Complimentary factory-recommended maintenance for the first two years or 20,000 miles
  • Complimentary loaner car while undergoing covered warranty repairs
  • Trip interruption coverage if caused by vehicle failure that is under warranty
  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance 

The Lexus L/Certified Warranty is good for the latter of two years after the expiration of the four-year/50,000-mile new Lexus vehicle Basic Warranty, or two years from the lease or purchase date of the L/Certified vehicle.

Benefits of Lexus Certified Pre-Owned vs. Used or New

Why would Riverview customers choose a certified pre-owned Lexus over a used Lexus or new Lexus? Along with all the benefits of the L/Certified program mentioned above, these are some other considerations:

  • Used Vehicles: Typically have lower prices and come in a wider variety of makes, models, features, mileage, and vehicle age.
  • Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles: Generally have more amenities for a lower price point than a new vehicle, but are higher quality than a standard used car.
  • New Vehicles: You get the latest features and the peace of mind and the pride of ownership that comes with a brand-new vehicle.
