Your Guide to 2000 Lexus RX300 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lexus RX300, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your RX300. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your RX300, 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 2000 Lexus RX300!

Lexus knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RX300's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2000 Lexus RX300 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lexus RX300

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2000 Lexus RX300 and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2000 Lexus RX300. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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. 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 RX300) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lexus RX300 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 2000 Lexus RX300 engine. To learn how often Lexus recommends you have the oil changed in your 2000 RX300, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2000 Lexus RX300.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lexus RX300 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Lexus RX300 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Lexus RX300's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Lexus RX300 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lexus RX300 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Lexus RX300 radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2000 Lexus RX300 maintenance.

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

2000 Lexus RX300 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2000 Lexus RX300. Get answers to common Lexus RX300 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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!
  • Can Lexus dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Lexus RX300 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
