Lexus SUVs are sophisticated vehicles designed and developed to deliver flawless performance, outstanding reliability, and luxurious comfort. As with any other car, the better you maintain your Lexus SUV, the longer it will continue to perform at optimum levels.
Lexus SUV maintenance and servicing is an essential part of that equation. To help you keep your SUV in the best condition, we've compiled a few tips and insights on the best way to look after your SUV.
Your Lexus car must undergo a service at set intervals (either measured by the mileage or time period). These are classified as minor and major services. A minor service is a simple and relatively quick process where the oil is changed, tyres are checked, and a simple yet thorough check-over by a qualified technician is carried out on your car. These normally happen every six months or every 10,000km.
A major service is much more in-depth and covers a multitude of checks, including all fluids and filters, plugs and a top-to-bottom examination to ensure your vehicle is operating efficiently.
The reason services are so important is to allow a qualified technician to thoroughly examine your Lexus to troubleshoot and offer suggestions to keep your vehicle in the best condition. It's also important to have a full-service history when selling your car in the UAE, as it gives your vehicle a complete and documented history.
At Al-Futtaim Lexus, we take great pride in offering our clients great quality new and Pre-Owned cars in the UAE and a comprehensive package of aftersales services. To keep your Lexus SUV in great condition, you can use services such as 3M tinting, rustproofing, headlight rejuvenation, AC refreshment and AC gas top-up.
These simple yet effective services help maintain your Lexus SUV, keep it looking its best, and perform to its full potential. For example, 3M tinting provides a tint on your windows that can reduce the amount of UV rays entering the cabin and causing damage to your upholstery and dash in the long term. Headlight rejuvenation can keep your headlights clear and bright, while an AC refreshment and gas top-up ensures your air conditioning is working effectively, keeping you cool and your cabin smelling fresh.
Carrying out SUV maintenance is an ongoing process. So, rather than paying out each time you book a service, the easiest way is to spread the cost with a service plan. Available for both new and Pre-Owned Lexus SUVs and cars, a service plan can save you between 30-40% in service costs. If you take out a service plan on a new SUV, that plan is transferable when you sell your car, adding real value. For Pre-Owned Lexus SUVs, you can choose plans ranging from one to four years.
If you're putting your car in for anything from a full service to a maintenance inspection or even a simple tyre change, it helps if the technician knows the history of your vehicle and has instant access to all your car's service details. With Lexus cars, that's easy, thanks to our unique computer network that gives any Lexus technician all of your car's details at their fingertips. That means you can go into any Lexus service centre, and your team will know your SUV's history at a glance so you can get a tailored service specific to your needs.
You can do plenty of things at home to keep your maintenance schedule up to date. From checking your tyre pressures every week to doing a visual 'walk-around' inspection of your vehicle when you clean it, spotting those little tell-tale signs that something needs addressing is easier than you think. For example, if you notice that the air in your cabin smells a little musty, that's an indicator that your AC may need topping up. If your SUV is sluggish to start, the battery may need to be serviced or even replaced.
Our top tip: trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel quite right, book into Al-Futtaim Lexus for a maintenance check today.
