Lexus vehicles are built to last. But no car does so forever without routine maintenance and servicing. Every owner should keep up with their vehicle’s Lexus service. Here are a few items you will want to ensure you don’t forget about.
1. Oil and Filter
Unless you are driving an all-electric vehicle, your car’s oil is the most critical item you’ll want to keep in mind. Regular oil and filter changes can dramatically extend a vehicle’s lifespan. Old engine oil can cause your car to run too hot and less efficiently.
The oil filter isn’t the only filter you need to keep clean and fresh. A dirty air filter can cause overheating. Fuel filters keep contaminants out of the fuel. Finally, cabin filters make sure the air you breathe is clean.
No matter the weather, you’ll want to maintain a grip on the road. The only way to do that is to ensure your tires are in good shape. Lexus service specialists can check and let you know when you’re due for new ones.
While it’s recommended that you change brake pads every 30,000 miles, driving conditions and routines can cause harsher wear and tear, especially if you spend a lot of time in stop-and-go traffic. Make sure you have your brake pads and rotors checked.
Even if you don’t feel your car drifting between lanes on its own, you should still make sure you get its alignment checked. This is easy whenever you bring it in for regular maintenance. Bad alignment can wear down your tires even faster.
