Here’s Why 2012 Lexus ES350 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Lexus ES350 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your ES350 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more.

Just follow your 2012 Lexus ES350 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lexus, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your ES350 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2012 Lexus ES350 problems.

Overview of Essential Lexus ES350 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Lexus ES350 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your ES350's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2012 Lexus ES350 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Lexus ES350 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty ES350) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lexus ES350 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Lexus ES350 engine. To learn how often Lexus recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 ES350, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Lexus ES350.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lexus ES350 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Lexus ES350's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Lexus ES350 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.
