AN OIL CHANGE IS IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN THE SMOOTH RUNNING OF YOUR LEXUS. LEXUS TECHNICIANS WILL CHOOSE THE RIGHT OIL FOR OPTIMAL ENGINE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR LEXUS AS WELL AS FUEL ECONOMY.
Lexus vehicles in which 0w-20 synthetic oil is required have been approved for extended oil change intervals of 10,000 km/12-months. However, you should continue to check the car engine oil levels regularly and top up if needed.
Engines that recommend 5w-20 or 5w-30 mineral oil, but allow the optional use of 0w-20 synthetic oil will continue to require 5,000-km/6-month (whichever comes first) oil change intervals if the 0w-20 is used.
If the vehicle operation meets the standard criteria for "Special Operating Conditions" such as: driving off-road, on dirt roads, towing a trailer, making repeated short trips under 32˚F, or extensive idling; the engine oil must be replaced at 5,000 km intervals, regardless of what type of oil is used.
