Default L/Certified Vehicle service agreement

I canít sleep. My wife and I bought a 2016 GX 460 today and I am having a hard time believing what the dealer has told me about the warranty we purchased so I found this forum but have not found an answer.
Dealers says there is 20 months left on factory warranty, after that is a (L/Certified limited warranty for 24 more months unlimited miles) then starts extended L/Certified Vehicle Service Agreement that with purchased for 5years 60 months unlimited miles.
This gives us coverage until February 2027 unlimited miles. This just seems to good. All of our paperwork is on a thumb drive and I guess the fine print is in there. Can anyone tell me if this sounds right?
thanks in advance

Sounds too good to be true.

Without actually reading the Warranty details, here's from the top of my head...

Factory Warranty, 4yrs, 50K miles (20 months left, through April 2020)
L/Certified, 2 yrs, unlimited miles, starts at the end of year 4 or when 50K miles is accumulated (through April 2022, or 2 years from when your miles hit the big 5-0)
The L/Certified VSA is not a warranty product, but provides you the Lexus recommended services through a certain point. I've seen it written as "the next 4 factory recommended services" or something similar. So if you have 18K miles on the odometer, that sets you up for 20K, 25K, 30K and 35K factory recommended maintenance visits for "free". "Free" because the costs of those visits are already factored into your purchase price, you simply paid for them up front rather than at the time of service.

But I'm not 100% certain so be sure to read up on the docs provided to you by the dealer.
