ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Lexus Customer Charter
At Lexus we are committed to providing a high level of customer satisfaction and quality products. Both Lexus Division UK and our Lexus Centre network abide by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute approved Motor Industry Codes of Practice for vehicle sales, service and repair. However, we recognise that we may not always be able to offer dispute resolutions which suit all parties involved.
The first point of contact should be the Lexus Centre you purchased your vehicle from when querying an issue with your vehicle or the service you receive. If this cannot be resolved this can then be escalated to the Centre Manager, or Managing Director of that particular group.
Should this option not provide a suitable resolution, the next option is to contact The Motor Ombudsman. The Motor Ombudsman is a provider of Alternative Dispute Resolution, offering an impartial service to resolve a compliant. They can be contacted at www.themotorombudsman.org
or on 08439109000.
Our New Car Sales Commitment:
All vehicles featured in our warranty, pricing and marketing publications will be advertised honestly. The most up to date information regarding your new vehicle purchase can be obtained from your Lexus Centre.
We advise that necessary precautions are taken in order to check that the specification, appearance and dimensions of your potential purchase match your requirements. A test drive of the vehicle is highly recommended and we suggest that any specification queries are taken up with your Lexus Centre before purchase.
Our Used Car Sales Commitment:
If you are buying a used car you should check the vehicle history, check that the vehicle has all the features you need and thoroughly inspect the vehicle to ensure that you are happy with the condition.
In the event of an issue arising through the purchase of a used car, the contract of sale is through the Lexus Centre and not Lexus Division UK, therefore any issues should be taken up with the Centre Manager or, alternatively if you feel that your dispute is not resolved you can contact The Motor Ombudsman.
