Here’s Why 2012 Lexus IS F Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Lexus IS F, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your IS F could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your IS F, 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 IS F!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your IS F's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2012 Lexus IS F problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lexus IS F Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Lexus IS F and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your IS F’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 Lexus IS F. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your IS F may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lexus IS F battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your IS F stranded. Your Lexus IS F 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 2012 Lexus IS F's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 IS F. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Lexus IS F.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.

  • When should I have Lexus IS F alignment checked? You know your Lexus IS F better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Lexus IS F? 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 IS F engines.
  • Can Lexus dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Lexus IS F to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
