Overview of Essential Lexus RX300 Maintenance Needs
Bring your 1999 Lexus RX300 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services
and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check.
A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.
Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your RX300. 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.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Lexus RX300?
If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years).
Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your RX300 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 RX300 battery.
Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to.
If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!).
Your Lexus RX300 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can
prevent premature wear on your 1999 Lexus RX300 engine.

What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Lexus RX300?
You know your Lexus RX300 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 switch my Lexus RX300 to high mileage oil?
If your Lexus RX300 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!
Why are my Lexus dashboard lights on?
Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lexus RX300 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.
