Lexus Scheduled Maintenance

Lexus Scheduled Maintenance

You don’t have to go to Lexus Carlsbad or Lexus Escondido to get your Lexus Scheduled Maintenance. Autotyme Auto Repair in Vista can do all of your Lexus’ scheduled maintenance. You can get your car truck or van serviced at Autotyme and still maintain your factory warranty. We offer either original Lexus Toyota parts or aftermarket parts. Since we see vehicles throughout their lives, we know which aftermarket parts are good and which ones aren’t.

If you have a Perform Maintenance Light that is on, then you should stop by. Lexus has a recommended maintenance schedule for your vehicle. You can check your owners manual for details as to your recommended maintenance schedule. Some factors that can vary your maintenance schedule is how much you drive.

The schedule below is a rough guide. Bring your car, truck, van or SUV into Autotyme to find exactly what your make, model and year of Lexus Scheduled Maintenance Needs are.
