Each pre-owned Lexus model must also pass a meticulous 161-point inspection to become Lexus Certified. This inspection evaluates many aspects of the car, including but not limited to:

  • Engine, exterior, interior, electronics, safety devices, undercarriage
  • The vehicle must also pass a road test conducted by experienced certified technicians
