Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lexus GX470
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2008 Lexus GX470 for factory-recommended routine maintenance
and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.
Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your GX470. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 Lexus GX470.
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).
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.
Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lexus GX470 battery, and so can frequent short drives.
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 GX470) stuck in the middle of nowhere.
Your Lexus GX470 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can
help your 2008 Lexus GX470's engine run smoother.
To learn how often Lexus recommends you have the oil changed in your 2008 GX470, 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.

Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary,

Without routine Lexus GX470 maintenance,

What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Lexus GX470?
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 GX470 need high mileage oil?
Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Lexus GX470 engines.
Why are my Lexus dashboard lights on?
Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lexus GX470 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
