For any car owner, it is important to keep your car up and running and in a good condition. The adage that prevention is better than cure rings true for many things in life – including your Lexus.
Here are the top 5 tips to ensure that your Lexus will keep running at its best for a long time.
The easiest way to make sure that problems are prevented and addressed before they become expensive complications is to follow the suggested maintenance plan for your Lexus. The maintenance schedule is specially designed to check specific parts and systems at specific intervals to maximize their lifetime. During these maintenance visits, mechanics will replace vital parts before they need replacing to ensure you an extended safe driving experience.
Take it easy
Easy driving will lead to the longevity of your Lexus. If you respect your car then its parts will last longer, for example, protect your car's transmission box from damage by shifting gears smoothly and avoid shifting while the car is not completely still. In doing so you will reduce the strain on your car's transmission box and perhaps avoid having it replaced in future.
Go for regular check-ups
Stop by our garage regularly and have them check your tires. Make sure that the tire pressure is just right as per your owner's manual to prevent unnecessary and uneven wear that can have further complications for your suspension and wheel alignment.
Go for regular top-ups
Regularly check your engine oil for impurities and to make sure that its level is correct. Metal shavings in the oil or a burnt smell should alert you to problems that need investigation.
Ensure that you regularly check your car's transmission fluid for the correct level and color. The fluid should be light and have an even consistency.
Check your power steering fluid. You may find the reservoir marked with a steering wheel on the cap and a marked level on the side. If you need to top-up frequently there may be a leak in the system and it is best to have this investigated.
Know your car
If you know your car you will quickly pick up on anything out of the ordinary. New noises are especially concerning and any misfires, rattling or high-pitched sounds coming from your engine should prompt you to investigate.
