Default After purchasing a certify pre-own lexus

In 2009, I purchase my certified Pre-own Lexus at a Bay Area Lexus dealership. Recently, my car was hit and run twice within the year and I discovered some new interesting facts that Lexus did not inform me about. On the first accident, the body shop had asked me if my car has ever been worked on before. My response was no because I am the second owner and no accident has ever happen to me(on top of that i bought the car at 19 k miles). He said the entire car was actually resprayed and that he didn't notice any body damages to the front end (that was were my hit and run was at).

Last week, my car was side swipe at a parking lot on the back end quarter panel of the car. The body shop than called me again and said "Ya this car was actually involve in an accident, and the car was rear ended." .

So my question is: Should Lexus even approve of this as a Certify Lexus?

I'm kinda on the same boat with you. Recently found out my driver side brake lights not working when I went in to get oil change(serramonte). They found out the brake light is aftermarket one. I had to go back to the dealer I originally bought the car from(Fremont) to get the brake light replaced. It's free but it got me wondering was the car in an accident before..btw mines certified too bought it in last year.

Little story that happened to me
I went to lexus serramonte to get my rear view mirror relplaced/fixed cuz it was shaking hella bad. I think there was a tsb for this but anyway. They told me that my rear view mirror was aftermarket so they didnt replace it. They just tightened the bolts for me. I was like, how is my rearview mirror after market when i bought it at lexus
