Emergency repairs

Lexus recommends having maintenance and repairs for your LX 570 performed by an authorized Lexus dealership.

To locate your nearest authorized Lexus dealership, log on to www.lexus.com or contact Lexus Customer Satisfaction at (800)255-3987.

Maintenance and repairs not performed by an authorized Lexus dealership should be performed by a qualified technician following procedures in Lexus service and repair publications.

If your vehicle is inoperable or unsafe to drive and there is no Lexus dealership reasonably available to make repairs, you may perform the repairs yourself or have them performed by another automotive service provider.

Lexus will reimburse you for any of the repairs that are covered by warranty.

To receive reimbursement, present to an authorized Lexus dealership your paid repair invoices and any parts that were removed from the vehicle. You will be reimbursed for warranted parts at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price and warranted labor at a geographically appropriate hourly rate multiplied by Lexus’ recommended time allowance for the repair.

If your vehicle requires emergency repair, Lexus assumes no liability for subsequent failures caused by improper repairs or the use of non- Genuine Lexus Parts unless you have the vehicle properly repaired in a timely manner. To ensure that warranty coverage remains intact, have your vehicle inspected by an authorized Lexus dealership as soon as possible after an emergency repair.

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.

Maintaining your vehicle according to

Maintaining your vehicle according to the recommendations in this booklet is required to ensure that your warranty coverage remains intact. You should keep detailed records of vehicle maintenance, including date of service, mileage at time of service and a description of service and/or parts installation performed. The maintenance logs in this booklet are a good place to record this information.

If you sell your vehicle, be sure to 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.

Maintenance and repair services may be performed by you or by any automotive service provider you choose.

Lexus will not deny a warranty claim solely because you used a service provider other than a Lexus dealership for maintenance and repairs.

However, damage or failures caused by improper maintenance or repairs are not covered under warranty.

Your dealer may recommend more frequent maintenance intervals or more maintenance services than those listed in the scheduled maintenance log. These additional services are not required to maintain your warranty coverage. Ask your dealer for an explanation of any recommended maintenance not included in the scheduled maintenance log.

To ensure that your vehicle receives first-quality service and factoryauthorized parts, Lexus recommends having maintenance performed by an authorized Lexus dealership. To locate your nearest authorized Lexus dealership, log on to www.lexus.com or contact Lexus Customer Satisfaction at (800)255-3987.

Lexus dealership technicians are experts in the maintenance and repair of 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 Certification Program, which requires specialized, state-ofthe- art training as well as rigorous exams through both Lexus and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

Additionally, when you have your vehicle serviced at a Lexus dealership, your service information is recorded in the Lexus National Service History database. This is the first database of its kind in the automotive industry. It can be accessed by any Lexus dealership in the U.S. — a great convenience if you relocate or need to have your vehicle serviced while traveling.

You can be confident you’re getting the best possible service for your vehicle when you take it to a Lexus dealership. Don’t trust your investment to anything less than a team of Lexus specialists.

Maintenance and repairs not performed by an authorized Lexus dealership should be performed by a qualified technician following procedures in Lexus service and repair publications.

When Cleaning the Exterior
• Working from top to bottom, apply lots of low-pressure water to the body, wheel wells and underside of vehicle to remove dirt and dust. Wash the vehicle body using a soft sponge or cotton cloth with mild car-wash soap. Rinse off with water.
• If water does not bead on a clean vehicle surface, apply car wax using a soft cotton cloth when the body of the vehicle is cool.

When Cleaning the Wheels
• Wait for hot wheels to cool before getting wheels wet.
• Using a soft sponge or cotton cloth, apply same mild car-wash soap as used for the vehicle body. Quickly rinse off with water. Using a soft cotton cloth, apply same car wax as used for the vehicle body.

Determining Your Maintenance Interval: Months vs. Mileage
Lexus recommends obtaining scheduled maintenance for your vehicle every six months or 5,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

For example: • If at six months you have driven less than 5,000 miles, you should obtain maintenance at six months; don’t wait until 5,000 miles.
• If you drive 5,000 miles in less than six months, you should obtain maintenance at 5,000 miles; don’t wait until six months.

Be sure to keep an eye on your mileage so that you obtain maintenance when recommended. If you are a low-mileage driver, mark your calendar to remind yourself to obtain maintenance every six months.

Special Operating Conditions

In addition to standard maintenance items, vehicles that are driven under special operating conditions require further maintenance service. These special operating conditions, which put added demands on a vehicle, include: • Driving on dirt roads or on dusty roads
• Repeated trips of less than five miles in temperatures below 32° F or 0° C
• Extensive idling and/or lowspeed driving for long distances, such as police, taxi or door-todoor delivery use

If you drive primarily under any of the conditions noted, you should replace the engine oil and oil filter every six months or 5,000 miles. Some of these special operating conditions require other maintenance items; these items are indicated in each maintenance chart.

If you drive only occasionally under any of the special operating conditions noted, it is not necessary to change the oil every six months or 5,000 miles or to perform the additional services listed in the charts. This added maintenance is required only if you drive primarily under any of the special operating conditions.
