Here’s Why 1998 Lexus LX470 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Lexus LX470, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your LX470 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your LX470, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1998 Lexus LX470!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lexus themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 LX470 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1998 Lexus LX470 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lexus LX470

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Lexus LX470 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 LX470's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1998 Lexus LX470? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your LX470 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Lexus LX470 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty LX470) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lexus LX470 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1998 Lexus LX470's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lexus recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 LX470, 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1998 Lexus LX470?
