The Importance of Scheduled Maintenance

Lexus GX / Lexus GX Owners Manual / Maintenance information / Introduction / The Importance of Scheduled Maintenance

Regular maintenance is essential to obtaining the highest level of performance, safety and reliability from your Lexus. It can also enhance your vehicle’s resale value. This section of the Warranty and Services Guide is designed to help you make sure your vehicle receives proper and timely maintenance. It includes factory-recommended maintenance guidelines as well as logs in which to document your vehicle’s maintenance history.

In addition to scheduled maintenance, your Lexus requires ongoing general maintenance such as fluid checks and visual inspections. These procedures are listed on pages 42–43 of this booklet and described in detail in

the “Maintenance” section of the Owner’s Manual.

It is especially important to check your vehicle’s engine oil once a month and to regularly replace the engine oil and oil filter. Failure to do so can cause oil starvation and/or oil gelling, which can result in severe damage to your vehicle and require costly repairs that are not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

With proper maintenance and care, your vehicle will last longer and deliver more dependable, economical performance. Follow this booklet’s recommendations and you’ll enjoy maximum reliability and peace of mind from your Lexus for many years to come.
