Every vehicle has to be maintained to keep it in perfect working order. To do this, regular services are essential. While there are key points when your vehicle will benefit from a full, top-to-bottom major service, the interim services are just as important. So how do you know which service you need, and what do they include?
The one service that no vehicle should miss is the major service. These are usually scheduled at 40,000km, 80,000km, and 100000km. These are comprehensive examinations of almost every aspect of your vehicle, to ensure that it is operating smoothly and is in a roadworthy condition. Safety features are also fully checked. As well as all the checkpoints carried out in a minor service, a major service will include:
Minor and interim services
Usually carried out at 10,000km and 20,000km respectively, minor and interim services are also carried out between your major services (again, at 10,000 and 20,000km points) to keep on top of general maintenance. These minor and interim services are also useful to spot and catch potential problems earlier so that they do not turn into major repairs or serious faults that could put you and your passengers at risk. A minor service will include:
At Al-Futtaim Lexus, one of our popular additional services when carrying out a major service is an engine flush. This is a fast way to effectively ‘clean’ the inside of your engine. A special chemical is added to your engine oil and the vehicle is then run. This chemical dislodges dirt and build-up from the internal workings of the engine. The oil, chemical, and dirt particulates are then ‘flushed’ through by draining the oil and fresh oil is added. The engine flush is available from Al-Futtaim Lexus at an additional cost. We recommend that it is carried out during a major service.
To spread the cost of maintaining your Lexus, Al-Futtaim Lexus has a series of service plans that can offer you up to 60% in savings. Available when you purchase a new Lexus from Al-Futtaim Lexus, these packages cover you for three years or up to 60,000km and include minor, interim and major services.
