Lexus Sedan Maintenance Schedule
Lexus is renowned for its luxury sedan lineup, which includes the ES, IS, GS, and LS. There is good reason for that: this premium Japanese auto manufacturer engineers these cars with a sense of fine craftmanship and quality that’s unrivaled by competitors. But like all cars, they require proper care for optimal performance and increased longevity. Typically, your Lexus sedan will require first and second scheduled maintenance services at 5,000 miles/6 months and 10,000 miles/12 months, respectively. Now, let’s take a closer look at the recommended first and second scheduled maintenance services.
5,000 Miles/6 Months
At this point, a service technician needs to rotate the tires and perform a road test on the vehicle, as well as check all fluid levels and inspect the wiper blades, brake pads, calipers, and rotors. For special driving conditions, such as driving on dirt, dusty, muddy, or snow roads, it is recommended to inspect the axle shaft boots, steering linkage and boots, ball joints and dust covers, and engine air filter, as well as to torque nuts and bolts on the chassis and body.
10,000 Miles/6 Months
The second scheduled maintenance service appointment involves changing the oil and oil filter, replacing the cabin air filter, resetting the oil maintenance minder, rotating the tires again, inspecting the wiper blades, and road-testing the vehicle. For special driving conditions, the same inspections should occur as the ones from the first scheduled maintenance service.
