Today, Toy Car Care in Centennial has some great tips for a longer lasting Lexus that will not only make you smile but will also keep some of that hard earned money where it should be, in your pocket! Follow these great tips below to get the most out of your Lexus, and drive with confidence, knowing that Toy Car Care is there every step of the way, ensuring your safety and tending to your maintenance needs.
One of our top tips for a longer lasting Lexus, as well as any car for that matter, is regularly scheduled maintenance from a qualified company like Toy Car Care that specializes in Lexus model vehicles. Why does that make a difference? Well, our technicians go through extensive training and require up to date knowledge of what is happening with Lexus regarding all aspects such as recalls, spec changes, new designs and more. We also carry only the best manufacturer recommended parts and additives that are required to keep your Lexus properly warrantied. Don’t delay in bringing your vehicle in at the recommended date, as things can go from bad to worse sooner than you think if ignored.
And speaking of additives, the next of our tips for a longer lasting Lexus would be to attend to your regular interval fluid changes, from engine oil, transmission fluids, power steering fluids, anti-freeze and brake fluid. Checking your fluids often is quick and straightforward, and a habit you should get into, especially if you are driving more than usual on highways or up hills. You may find you have to top off your oil or fluids before the recommended fluid change date just because of your driving style. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Tire pressure is also another big deal in how your Lexus will perform and last throughout the years. Most people don’t entirely understand the importance of tire pressure, and usually, it is too late when accidents or unnecessary wear and tear begin to show because of neglect. Have a technician at Toy Car Care take a quick tire pressure test, or even rotate your tires to ensure they are wearing evenly on all levels. Uneven or premature tire wear can lead to other problems such as alignment issues, bad tie rods, and poor suspension. Always check your tires when they are cool, not after a long drive.
What’s that noise? Not sure? Well, be sure you take whatever noise you hear seriously. With some newer vehicles you will hear normal sounds coming from the engine, especially when cooling down or parked, but if something doesn’t sound right, it probably isn’t. Listen specifically for high pitched squeals, which could be a belt coming loose just about anywhere. Overheating will likely be the next indication that something is amiss, and loud clunks or affected driving performance is always a sign something is not right. Have it checked out immediately.
What is your driving style? Why does it matter? Well, it does matter, because gentle, smooth shifting and easy stop and go actions will be easier on your Lexus throughout the years. Keep in mind that stopping completely before shifting into park or drive will be greatly appreciated by your car’s transmission. Hey, think about the gas you will be saving too if you are gently driving versus slamming on the gas pedal and taking off like Steve McQueen!
The last of our tips for a longer lasting Lexus would be to keep your vehicle clean, inside and out! Resale value will increase if you have kept the interior like-new and odor free, and if you protected the outside as well, your paint job should be looking great too. Be sure to have a monthly detail service done to keep your car looking its best.
With a Lexus vehicle, you are ahead of the game, because Lexus is well known for its quality and for being known as one of the most valuable brands in the world in 2017. Why would you want to skip out on giving it the TLC it deserves? Your technician will do a thorough inspection from top to bottom, including everything mentioned above and including wheel bearing and spark plugs and wire inspections. Normally, it is recommended to service your Lexus every 6 months or 5,000 miles, but again, that will depend on your driving style, how far you have driven and unusual noises you hear.
