2023 RC F Reliability

Lexus is Toyota's luxury sub-brand and is, by association, dependable and reliable. The RC F has been remarkably reliable, although there was a minor recall for 2020-2022 models that concerned a missing weight capacity on the tire label. 2016-2018 models were also recalled for a possibly faulty fuel pump.

The RC F has never received a J.D. Power Ownership Survey score, most likely due to low sales volumes. As a brand, Lexus tends to score well and has received numerous awards related to reliability.

The RC F is covered by a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.
