At 5,000 Miles

So, what’s the first milestone to look for? Clocking in at 5,000 miles means it’s time for a cursory inspection.

Your Lexus IS 300 is a luxury vehicle and certainly well maintained; however, it’s good practice to keep up with these services as you continue driving it. This is for the benefit of your car’s performance. That’s why our technicians will take their first look at the 5,000-mile mark.

When you come into our dealership, we’ll take care of you right away. This initial service will include a road test, which is performed to ensure the car is handling as it should while on the roadways. The tires will be rotated at this maintenance interval, too, to ensure even wear on the tire tread.

We’ll also inspect and adjust all fluid levels, including oil, windshield washer fluid, coolant, and brake fluid. A visual inspection will also be done of the brake pads, calipers, and rotors to ensure the car can stop properly and provides a safe ride every time you’re behind the wheel.

It’s also good to remember that these basic checks should occur around every 5,000 miles. You can count on us to handle the routine maintenance you need, so you can get back on the road in your IS 300!

At 15,000 Miles

When you reach 15,000 miles, you’ve gone a bit farther. Typically, you’ll want to come to our service center for another examination to ensure your Lexus is still in great shape. It also will help it to drive well over the course of the next 5,000 miles—until your next check.

These inspections tend to be a bit more in depth for the sake of being thorough as well as for safety.

In addition to the usual replacements and checks made at 5,000 miles, some of the services you can expect are:

  • Inspect the body, brakes, hoses, axle shaft boots, exhaust pipes, and more
  • Smart key battery change
  • Check and/or change engine coolant

It’s also important to note that vehicles that run on non-synthetic oil should aim for a change around the 10,000-mile mark or prior to reaching 15,000 miles. Getting an oil change every 5,000 miles will keep the engine lubricated and running smoothly.

At 30,000 Miles

Congratulations—you’ve reached 30,000 miles! Once you’ve gotten here, you’ve probably made had these regular services performed a few times.

Around this milestone in particular, it’s standard for your vehicle to go through a series of replacements for certain parts. This keeps your Lexus IS 300 running smoothly as well as responsively. So, what does that entail?

When you come to our shop, we’ll go over each of these in turn:

  • Brake fluid
  • Cabin/engine air filters
  • Smart key battery

Reviewing the status of these parts will help us to determine how your Lexus is functioning. Once that’s taken care of, you’re all set!

At 40,000 Miles

An oil change will be completed once again at this point along with cabin air filter replacement, tire rotation, and wiper blade inspection. This is standard practice to stay on top of your vehicle’s maintenance, so you know that it will stay in great condition for a long time.

Spark plugs are another important part of the engine and they should be maintained properly as you drive. They’ll need to be replaced when the odometer hits 40,000 miles. Changing the spark plugs is one way to ensure the engine in your IS 300 starts the way it should.

Even after 40,000 miles, our expert technicians will be here for you to keep your Lexus up to date. Reach out to us if you need anything at all!
