131-point inspection

To qualify for the "Lexus Certified Pre-Owned" designation, a Lexus must undergo numerous relentless mechanical and aesthetic inspections. Lexus demands that engine, transmission, suspension and electrical components must perform as they were originally designed to. Additionally, Lexus undergoes a stringent inspection of all interior and exterior finishes to ensure the highest level of quality.
