Here’s Why 2012 Lexus GX460 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Lexus GX460 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your GX460. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your GX460, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Lexus GX460!

Lexus knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your GX460 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Lexus GX460 problems.

Overview of Essential Lexus GX460 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Lexus GX460 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your GX460’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2012 Lexus GX460 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lexus GX460 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 GX460) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lexus GX460 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Lexus GX460 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 GX460. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Lexus GX460.

Maintaining your Lexus GX460 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Lexus GX460 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lexus GX460's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Lexus GX460 maintenance, 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lexus GX460 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lexus GX460? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2012 Lexus GX460 maintenance and repairs.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Lexus GX460. Get answers to common Lexus GX460 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Lexus GX460? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Lexus GX460 need high mileage oil? If your Lexus GX460 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Lexus? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Lexus GX460, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
