Lexus is the luxury brand of Toyota and offers everything from SUVs, like the Lexus RX, to performance-oriented cars, such as the LC sports car. Whichever Lexus style you choose, you can count on extraordinary designs, upscale interiors, innovative technology, reliability, and capable performance. To help offset the cost of purchasing a brand-new Lexus vehicle, consider buying a gently used or pre-owned Lexus that comes with all the features you’d expect from this auto brand.
One of the main reasons to buy a pre-owned Lexus is affordability. With a pre-owned vehicle, you’ll pay a reduced purchase price and have lower registration and insurance fees. In addition, the depreciation rate of a used vehicle is slower than that of a brand-new vehicle. You’ll also have the advantage of a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles to choose from.
Most used cars sold at a dealership come from a trade-in or from the end of a lease. A high-quality dealership such as Eskridge Lexus of Oklahoma City only takes in trade-ins or end-of-lease cars that are in top condition, have low mileage, and have been well maintained. You can rest assured that when you buy a pre-owned car from us, it’ll have gone through rigorous testing and inspections, so you’ll be able to drive away with a car you’ll fall in love with and have for years.
A pre-owned car is a car that has had a previous owner. You can get a pre-owned or used car from a private seller or through a dealership. A dealership can take in any type of used vehicle, even ones that aren’t of the brand they represent, and resell it. If you buy a used vehicle from a private seller, you may not get a transparent history report or full disclosure of the vehicle’s condition. You often take your chances when you buy a used car from a private seller.
However, when you buy a pre-owned car from a reputable dealership, the car generally comes with some type of vehicle history report, and the service department has inspected, tested, and cleaned the vehicle before they resell it.
If you want to buy a used vehicle that still has warranty coverage, comes with a vehicle history report, and has undergone rigorous testing and inspections, consider buying a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle instead of just a pre-owned car.
A CPO car is more than a used car; it’s a pre-owned vehicle with extra perks and benefits. Several automakers sponsor dealerships with a CPO program that includes rigorous testing and inspection, some level of warranty, and other benefits. Keep in mind that not all CPO vehicles come with a manufacturer’s backing. If this is the case, the dealership can set its own rules for what constitutes a CPO vehicle. If you decide that a CPO vehicle is right for you, consider choosing one that has a manufacturer’s sponsor, such as the L/Certified by Lexus CPO program.
The L/Certified by Lexus program is one of the top-ranked CPO programs available for a luxury brand. In fact, 2023 marks the sixth year in a row that U.S. News & World Report has awarded the L/Certified by Lexus the “Best CPO Program.” This program offers you industry-leading benefits, peace of mind, and the knowledge that your CPO car comes with the highest standards available.
Our L/Certified by Lexus program goes above and beyond other CPO programs backed by auto brands and includes a number of benefits.
Our service technicians are certified through Lexus and go through ongoing training to keep up with the newest and latest Lexus technology. As our CPO vehicles must be under seven years old with fewer than 80,000 miles to qualify for the program, these vehicles have modern technology features that our service technicians understand. In addition, you’ll receive a full vehicle history report of your CPO Lexus.
Every Lexus that has potential for the L/Certified by Lexus program must first go through an extensive 161-point inspection. Our service technicians focus on the details and inspect every aspect of the Lexus vehicle. They look at the exterior, interior, engine, undercarriage, electronics, and safety systems. The technicians even inspect the spare tire, all lights, and the first aid kit to ensure the car is ready for its new owner.
Every L/Certified by Lexus vehicle comes with a suite of LexusCare benefits that set our CPO program above others.
New Lexus vehicles come with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty. With an L/Certified by Lexus CPO, you’ll receive up to six years of this coverage from the purchase date with unlimited mileage and no deductibles. Contact us to learn more about what the warranty covers.
L/Certified by Lexus vehicles also receive regular maintenance for up to two years or 20,000 miles. You’ll have these two complimentary services every six months or 5,000 miles, whichever comes first.
You’ll have peace of mind that your L/Certified Lexus vehicle comes with roadside assistance for up to four years with unlimited mileage. All you need to do is download the Lexus roadside assistance app onto your smartphone and activate it when you need fuel or a battery jumpstart or if you’ve locked yourself out of your car.
If you’re away from home and you have mechanical difficulties, you’ll get reimbursed for meals and lodging for up to three nights at $200 per night. You’ll also get up to $50 per day for five days for rental car reimbursement.
If your vehicle is at the dealership for over eight hours for warranty repairs, we’ll provide you with a loaner car to get around in.
