Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2016 Lexus IS200t

How often should I service my 2016 Lexus IS200t?

Here’s Why 2016 Lexus IS200t Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Lexus IS200t, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your IS200t. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your IS200t, 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 2016 Lexus IS200t!

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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your IS200t running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Lexus IS200t problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lexus IS200t Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Lexus IS200t for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your IS200t's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 Lexus IS200t. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your IS200t may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lexus IS200t battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty IS200t) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lexus IS200t won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Lexus IS200t engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 IS200t. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Lexus IS200t? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Lexus IS200t steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Lexus IS200t suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lexus IS200t's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Lexus IS200t 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 IS200t cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Lexus IS200t radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Lexus IS200t maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Questions About 2016 Lexus IS200t Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Lexus IS200t. Get answers to common Lexus IS200t maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lexus IS200t? 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 should I switch my Lexus IS200t to high mileage oil? If your Lexus IS200t 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lexus IS200t 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.
