Lexus LC review - Reliability and Safety

Given Lexus’ consistent high scoring in Driver Power, you’d expect an LC to keep owners satisfied. There's a strong roster of safety kit, too

Lexus has become a byword for reliability and satisfaction, with dealers going out of their way to keep customers happy. The brand and its models have been consistently high-achievers in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey over the past 15 years.

The desire to produce reliable cars is even evident in the engineering choices. For example, the gearbox in the V8 is a traditional automatic, with a multi-plate clutch, as that’s deemed to wear less than a DSG twin-clutch system.

All versions of the LC also come with the Lexus Safety System+, which includes a pre-crash safety system (autonomous emergency braking plus pedestrian detection), adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist with lane departure warning, automatic high beam LED lights and road sign recognition.

Warranty

You’d hope not to need to call on a Lexus warranty, but the company's standard warranty lasts for three years and 60,000 miles. In addition to that, hybrid models also have five-year/60,000-mile cover for the hybrid system's components and battery.
