Your Guide to 2003 Lexus RX300 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lexus RX300 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your RX300 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine RX300 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2003 Lexus RX300!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lexus themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RX300's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2003 Lexus RX300 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lexus RX300 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2003 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your RX300's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2003 Lexus RX300 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your RX300 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lexus RX300 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 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2003 Lexus RX300 engine. To learn how often Lexus recommends you have the oil changed in your 2003 RX300, 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. 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 2003 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!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Lexus RX300 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 RX300's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Lexus RX300 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Lexus RX300 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Lexus RX300 radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2003 Lexus RX300 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.
