2018 Lexus LS500 Drivetrain Service

Your LS500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Lexus, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your LS500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2018 Lexus LS500 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Lexus's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Lexus LS500 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Lexus LS500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your LS500 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Lexus LS500.

How much does it cost to fix your 2018 Lexus LS500 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
