Your Guide to 2005 Lexus IS300 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lexus IS300, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your IS300 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine IS300 maintenance. Just follow your 2005 Lexus IS300 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lexus, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 IS300 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2005 Lexus IS300 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lexus IS300 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2005 Lexus IS300 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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 IS300. 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.

Could your 2005 Lexus IS300 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lexus IS300 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 IS300) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lexus IS300 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2005 Lexus IS300's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lexus recommends you have the oil changed in your 2005 IS300, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2005 Lexus IS300.

Maintaining your Lexus IS300 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Lexus IS300 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 IS300's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Lexus IS300 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lexus IS300 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Lexus IS300 radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2005 Lexus IS300 maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2005 Lexus IS300. Get answers to common Lexus IS300 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lexus IS300? 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 IS300 need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Lexus IS300? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Lexus? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lexus IS300 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.
