Operation and Maintenance

GENERAL INFORMATION

You are responsible for ensuring that your Lexus is operated and maintained according to the instructions in the Owner’s Manual and the “Maintenance Information” section of this guide.

You should keep detailed records of vehicle maintenance, since under some circumstances they may be required for warranty coverage.

These records should include date of service, mileage at time of service and a description of service performed and/or parts installed. For your convenience, maintenance logs are included in the “Maintenance Information” section of this guide. If you sell your vehicle, you should give your maintenance records to the new owner.

Lexus will not deny a warranty claim solely because you do not have records to show that you maintained your vehicle. However, damage or failures caused by lack of proper maintenance are not covered under warranty.

WHERE TO GO FOR MAINTENANCE

You may have maintenance performed on your vehicle by any qualified person or facility. However, Lexus recommends having maintenance performed by an authorized Lexus dealership.

Lexus dealership technicians are specially trained to maintain and repair Lexus vehicles. They stay current on the latest service information through Lexus technical bulletins, service publications and training courses. Many are also certified through the Lexus Commitment to Perfection Certifica - tion Program, which requires specialized, state-of-the-art training as well as rigorous exams through both Lexus and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

You can be confident you’re getting the best possible service for your vehicle when you take it to a Lexus dealership. Plus, a Lexus dealership will always use Genuine Lexus Parts designed specifically for your vehicle.

REPLACEMENT PARTS

Warranty coverage is not dependent upon the use of any particular brand of replacement parts. However, Lexus recommends using only Genuine Lexus Parts when you need to replace a part on your vehicle. Like all Lexus products, Genuine Lexus Parts are built to the highest standards of quality, durability and performance. They are also designed to fit your vehicle’s exact specifications.

Your Lexus dealership maintains an extensive inventory of Genuine Lexus Parts to meet your vehicle service needs. And because it is linked electronically to Lexus Parts Distribution Centers, the dealership has quick access to any parts it may not have in stock.

Genuine Lexus Parts are covered by their own warranty (see your dealer for details) or the remainder of any applicable New Vehicle Limited Warranty, whichever is longer. Non- Genuine Lexus Parts, or any damage or failures resulting from their use, are not covered by any Lexus warranty.
