Roadside Assistance
Lexus roadside assistance coverage
is for 48 months from your vehicle’s
in-service date, regardless of mileage.
Coverage is provided 24 hours a day,
365 days a year, for vehicles operated
in the United States, U.S. territories
and Canada. Assistance is administered through the American
Automobile Association.
Services Provided
• Roadside services such as battery jump-start, tire change, fuel
delivery, vehicle extrication and
towing in case of minor accident.
• Towing to the nearest Lexus
dealership (or an alternate repair
facility, if necessary).
• Assistance in locating alternate
transportation and lodging.
How to Get Help
To obtain roadside assistance, take
the following steps:
1) Call (800) 25-LEXUS
(800/255-3987).
6
Complimentary Services
2) Have as much of the following
information as possible:
• 17-digit Vehicle Identification
Number (VIN) found on the
vehicle registration paperwork
and on the certification label
located inside the driver’s
door jamb
• Owner’s name and home
address
• Vehicle license plate number
• Location of vehicle, including
the nearest major intersection
3) Wait at your vehicle or in a nearby
secure location for the roadside
assistance provider to arrive.
Additional Coverage
After your roadside assistance coverage expires, you may join a motor
club created exclusively for Lexus
owners. Benefits include roadside
assistance coverage, a trip-planning
service and discounts on travel and
dining. For further information, call
(800) 25-LEXUS.
OTHER BENEFITS AND ASSISTANCE
You may have noticed a few miles on
the odometer when you took delivery
of your Lexus. This mileage is a result
of the comprehensive process used to
ensure the quality of your vehicle. This
process includes extensive inspections during and after production. The
final inspection takes place at the selling dealership and includes a roadtest conducted by a trained Lexus
technician.
If you’d like to know more about
Lexus quality-control procedures, ask
a Lexus dealership service consultant.
Vehicle Service History
When you have your vehicle serviced
at a Lexus dealership, your service
information is recorded in the Lexus
National Service History database.
This is the first database of its kind in
the automotive industry. It can be
accessed by any Lexus dealership in
the United States — a great convenience if you relocate or need to have
your vehicle serviced while traveling.
Vehicle Service Agreements
If you plan to keep your vehicle for
several years or if you accumulate
mileage quickly, you may want to purchase a Lexus vehicle service agreement. These agreements cover the
cost of specific repairs beyond the
factory warranty period. They also
cover services such as towing, substitute transportation and lodging to
minimize your inconvenience should
your vehicle require repair. Lexus
vehicle service agreements are available with a variety of coverage
options. A Lexus dealership sales
consultant can help you select the
plan that’s best for you.
AMENITIES
Quality Control
Body Repairs
If you’re involved in a collision, you
want your vehicle to be returned to
its pre-accident condition when
repaired. That’s why it is important to
make sure repairs are made only with
Genuine Lexus Parts. Some repair
shops and insurance companies may
suggest using imitation or salvaged
parts to save money. However, these
parts do not meet Lexus’ high standards for quality, fit and corrosion
resistance. In addition, imitation and
salvaged parts (and any damage or
failures they may cause) are not covered by any Lexus warranty.
The best way to ensure that your vehicle is repaired with Genuine Lexus
Parts is to take it to a Lexus dealership. Each dealership works with
selected collision repair centers that
meet Lexus’ strict requirements for

training, equipment, quality and
customer satisfaction. These repair
centers use Genuine Lexus Parts
exclusively in the repair of Lexus
vehicles.
The Smart Key
Your Lexus vehicle was made with
two “Smart Keys” and an aluminum
key-number plate. Each Smart Key
includes an electronic main key that
has an integrated mechanical backup
key. The electronic key controls the
remote-entry and theft-deterrent systems, enables the push-button start
switch and controls the engine immobilizer. The mechanical key can be
removed from the electronic key and
used to operate the driver’s door lock,
the glove box lock and the trunk lock
(if equipped).
Replacing the Key
Your Lexus dealer can generate
replacement keys. Certain bonded/
registered locksmiths may also be
able to generate replacement keys.
When ordering a new key, bring all
keys for the vehicle to your dealership. If a Smart Key or the key-number plate is not available, a Lexus
dealer or certain locksmiths can
8
Other Benefits and Assistance
obtain the key code from a restrictedaccess database. These businesses
can also access a service utility to
register the keys to the vehicle if all
registered keys have been lost.
If you lock your key in your vehicle
and do not have a spare, your dealer
can make a new mechanical key from
the code on the key-number plate.
Certain bonded/registered locksmiths may also be able to generate
a replacement mechanical key. If a
Lexus dealer is not available, please
refer to www.aloa.org to find a
bonded/registered locksmith who
performs high-security key service.
Keeping the Key Safe
Replacing a Smart Key may be costly.
We advise you to keep a spare Smart
Key and the key-number plate in a
safe place. If you record the key number in more than one place, do not
record it in a way that can be easily
identified and associated with the
vehicle. For example, don’t leave the
number somewhere that can be
accessed by a valet. It is wise to keep
a copy of the key number outside of
the vehicle.

Both Lexus and your Lexus dealer are

needs. Your complete satisfaction is

Important: You must use NCDS prior
to exercising rights or seeking remedies available to you through a court
action pursuant to the MagnusonMoss Warranty Act. In addition, you
must use NCDS if you are required to
do so prior to exercising certain rights
or seeking certain remedies available
under the Lemon Laws of your state.
See the Lemon Law Guide for specific
requirements applicable in your state.
However, if your state law permits and
if you choose to exercise rights and
seek remedies that are not created by
the Act, you need not use NCDS.

Introduction
NCDS Arbitration
What is the Dispute Settlement
Program?
This program consists of local professionals who are trained and experienced in arbitration. The arbitrator(s)
appointed by NCDS will arbitrate
your case by reviewing the facts you
present; having the vehicle inspected,
if necessary; and promptly rendering
a fair and equitable decision.
How much will it cost?
The service is provided at no cost
to you. It is part of Lexus’ effort to
promptly and equitably resolve your
concerns. The decision maker is an
impartial third party. The decision of
the arbitrator(s) is binding on Lexus
but not on you.
IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE
How long is the arbitration
process?
The entire process — from the time
NCDS receives your request for arbitration to the arbitrator’s decision —
is designed to take no more than 40
days. A decision may be delayed if:
• You fail to provide certain information required by NCDS.
• You fail to make your vehicle
available for inspection by
NCDS in a timely manner (if
an inspection is required).
How do I request arbitration?
To initiate arbitration, you must complete an NCDS customer claim form
and mail it to NCDS. A claim form
is included in the Lemon Law Guide
located in your vehicle, or you may
request a form by calling NCDS at
(866) 272-4872. When you call,
please have ready your vehicle identification number (VIN), the names of
your selling and servicing dealerships,
and the current mileage on your
Lexus.
Introduction
WARRANTY
What types of disputes
are eligible?
NCDS resolves disputes involving
Lexus product reliability and warranty
performance that arise during the
greater of 1) four years or 50,000
miles from the vehicle’s in-service
date, whichever is earlier; or 2) the
applicable provision of the Lexus New
Vehicle Limited Warranty. However,
NCDS will not arbitrate 1) claims
involving a vehicle used primarily for
commercial purposes unless the
Lemon Laws of your state cover vehicles used for commercial purposes;
or 2) claims that an air bag failed to
deploy or deployed when it should
not have; or 3) disputes regarding
fires and/or accidents and/or theft.
Since there are other additional
exclusions, please contact NCDS
for further information on eligibility
guidelines. You must file a request
for arbitration with NCDS within six
months of the expiration of the eligibility period, provided the concern
or alleged defect was brought to the
attention of Lexus or one of its dealers
during the eligibility period.
11
IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE
In addition to completing the customer claim form, please provide
NCDS with the following information:
• Vehicle year, make, model, VIN,
mileage and date of purchase.
• A brief description of your complaint and the actions you have
taken to resolve it.
WARRANTY
• What action or remedy you
believe would resolve your
problem.
If you are seeking reimbursement for
repairs or incidental expenses, please
provide copies of applicable receipts.
Send your request to:
National Center for Dispute Settlement
P.O. Box 457
Mt. Clemens, MI 48046
Upon receipt of your request, NCDS
will contact you regarding the status
of your case and supply you with
additional details about the program.
How does the arbitration
process work?
When NCDS receives your request,
it will be forwarded to the Lexus area
office for response.
At the request of either party or the
arbitrators, NCDS may schedule a
technical inspection. This may include
an inspection of the vehicle by an
independent technical expert with a
Lexus representative present. The
technical expert will forward his or
her evaluation to NCDS.
An oral hearing will be held prior to
a decision being rendered. At this
hearing, all relevant evidence is
admissible. You and a Lexus representative will present both sides of
the case to the NCDS arbitrator(s).
You will each be given an equal
opportunity to give testimony and
provide documents. Then you will
each be given an opportunity for
rebuttal. After considering all testimony and documents, the arbitrator(s)
will review the applicable legal standards and render a decision within
10 days.
A settlement satisfactory to all parties
may be negotiated at any time during
the process.
12
Introduction
IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE
The decision of the arbitrator(s) is
binding on Lexus but not on you.
Lexus must comply with the decision
shortly after it is rendered, usually
within 30 days of your acceptance
of the decision. NCDS will contact
you within 10 days of scheduled
compliance to ensure that Lexus
has complied in a timely manner.
Are there limits to the scope
of arbitrated decisions?
Arbitrated decisions do not include:
• Attorney fees
• Punitive damages
• Multiple damages
• Consequential damages, other
than incidental damages that you
may be entitled to under law
What other recourse do I have?
If you are dissatisfied with the arbitrator’s decision or Lexus’ compliance,
you may pursue any other legal remedies available to you, including small
claims court. You should be aware
that the decision of the arbitrator(s)
is admissible as evidence in any legal
proceedings concerning your vehicle.
WARRANTY
What types of decisions are
rendered, and how do I know if
Lexus will abide by the decision
of the arbitrator(s)?
Arbitrated decisions are based on
what the arbitrator(s) believe to be
fair and equitable after applying the
appropriate legal standards. Remedies
include but are not limited to repairs;
reimbursement for repairs and incidental expenses, such as towing costs;
and repurchase or replacement of
your vehicle.
Is the Dispute Settlement
Program subject to change?
The information in this booklet about
the program is correct as of the date
of printing. However, the program
may be changed without notice.

Satisfaction Department at

Dispute Settlement Program.

You are responsible for ensuring that
your Lexus is operated and maintained according to the instructions
in the Owner’s Manual and the
“Maintenance Information” section
of this guide.
You may have maintenance performed on your vehicle by any qualified person or facility. However, Lexus
recommends having maintenance
performed by an authorized Lexus
dealership.
You should keep detailed records of
vehicle maintenance, since under
some circumstances they may be
required for warranty coverage.
These records should include date of
service, mileage at time of service
and a description of service performed and/or parts installed. For
your convenience, maintenance logs
are included in the “Maintenance
Information” section of this guide. If
you sell your vehicle, you should give
your maintenance records to the new
owner.
Lexus dealership technicians are specially trained to maintain and repair
Lexus vehicles. They stay current on
the latest service information through
Lexus technical bulletins, service publications and training courses. Many
are also certified through the Lexus
Commitment to Perfection Certification Program, which requires specialized, state-of-the-art training as well
as rigorous exams through both
Lexus and the National Institute for
Automotive Service Excellence.
Lexus will not deny a warranty claim
solely because you do not have
records to show that you maintained
your vehicle. However, damage or

maintenance are not covered under
warranty.

quality, durability and performance.
They are also designed to fit your
vehicle’s exact specifications.
Your Lexus dealership maintains an
extensive inventory of Genuine Lexus
Parts to meet your vehicle service
needs. And because it is linked electronically to Lexus Parts Distribution
Centers, the dealership has quick
access to any parts it may not have
in stock.
Genuine Lexus Parts are covered by

THE IMPORTANCE OF SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
Regular maintenance is essential
to obtaining the highest level of performance, safety and reliability from
your Lexus. It can also enhance your
vehicle’s resale value. This section
of the Warranty and Services Guide
is designed to help you make sure
your vehicle receives proper and
timely maintenance. It includes
factory-recommended maintenance
guidelines as well as logs in which to
document your vehicle’s maintenance
history.
In addition to scheduled maintenance,
your Lexus requires ongoing general
maintenance such as fluid checks and
visual inspections. These procedures
are listed on pages 42–43 of this
booklet and described in detail in
the “Maintenance” section of the
Owner’s Manual.
It is especially important to check
your vehicle’s engine oil once a
month and to regularly replace the
engine oil and oil filter. Failure to do
so can cause oil starvation and/or oil
gelling, which can result in severe
damage to your vehicle and require
costly repairs that are not covered by
the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
With proper maintenance and care,
your vehicle will last longer and delivdeliver more dependable, economical
performance. Follow this booklet’s
recommendations and you’ll enjoy
maximum reliability and peace of
mind from your Lexus for many years
to come.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND REGULAR USE
In addition to scheduled maintenance,
your Lexus requires ongoing general
maintenance such as fluid checks and
visual inspections. The recommended
guidelines for inspections are listed
below. Please refer to the “Maintenance” section of the Owner’s Manual
for a detailed description of inspection procedures.
After a Car Wash
• Check installation of driver’s
floor mat
After Off-Road Driving
Whenever you drive off-road through
deep sand, mud or water, perform
these inspections daily:
• Check axle shaft boots
Every 30 Days
• Check ball joints and dust covers
At least once every 30 days, perform
these inspections:
• Check brake lines and hoses
• Check engine oil level using
the dipstick
MAINTENANCE
• Visually check engine coolant
level on the see-through
reservoir

• Check brake pads/rotors and
parking brake linings/drums
• Check differential oil
• Check engine air filter
• Check nuts and bolts on chassis
• Visually check brake fluid level
on the see-through reservoir
• Check steering linkage and
boots
• Visually check condition of
battery
• Check transfer case oil
(AWD models)

Introduction
GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND REGULAR USE
When Cleaning the Interior
• Remove dirt and dust with a
vacuum cleaner. Wipe dirty surfaces with a soft cloth dampened
with warm water.
• When cleaning leather interior,
remove dirt and dust with a
vacuum cleaner. Using a sponge,
apply a small amount of neutral
wool detergent mixed in water,
rubbing in a circular motion.
Wipe off any excess detergent
and let leather dry in an open-air
location.
• Working from top to bottom,
apply lots of low-pressure water
to the body, wheel wells and
underside of vehicle to remove
dirt and dust. Wash the vehicle
body using a soft sponge or
cotton cloth with mild car-wash
soap. Rinse off with water.
• If water does not bead on a clean
vehicle surface, apply car wax
using a soft cotton cloth when
the body of the vehicle is cool.
When Cleaning the Wheels
• Wait for hot wheels to cool
before getting wheels wet.
• Using a soft sponge or cotton
cloth, apply same mild car-wash
soap as used for the vehicle
body. Quickly rinse off with
water. Using a soft cotton cloth,
apply same car wax as used for
the vehicle body.
MAINTENANCE
• When cleaning carpet, remove
dirt and dust with a vacuum
cleaner. Apply a foaming-type
carpet cleaner with a sponge or
brush, allowing cleaner to work
for a few minutes to loosen dirt.
Continue by rubbing carpet in
a circular motion. Wipe off any
excess cleaner with a clean cloth.
If any dirt remains, repeat process.
Best results are obtained by
keeping the carpet as dry as
possible.

SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE LOG
Determining Your
Maintenance Interval:
Months vs. Mileage
Lexus recommends obtaining scheduled maintenance for your vehicle
every six months or 5,000 miles,
whichever occurs first.
For example:
• If at six months you have driven
less than 5,000 miles, you
should obtain maintenance at six
months; don’t wait until 5,000
miles.
• If you drive 5,000 miles in less
than six months, you should
obtain maintenance at 5,000
miles; don’t wait until six months.
MAINTENANCE
Be sure to keep an eye on your
mileage so that you obtain maintenance when recommended. If you are
a low-mileage driver, mark your calendar to remind yourself to obtain
maintenance every six months.

Scheduled Maintenance Log
Special Operating
Conditions
In addition to standard maintenance
items, vehicles that are driven under
special operating conditions require
further maintenance service. These
special operating conditions, which
put added demands on a vehicle,
include:
• Driving on dirt roads or on dusty
roads
• Repeated trips of less than five
miles in temperatures below
32° F or 0° C
• Extensive idling and/or lowspeed driving for long distances,
such as police, taxi or door-todoor delivery use
If you drive primarily under any
of the conditions noted, you
should replace the engine oil
and oil filter every six months or
5,000 miles. Some of these
special operating conditions
require other maintenance items;
these items are indicated in each
maintenance chart.
SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE LOG
If you drive only occasionally under
any of the special operating conditions noted, it is not necessary to
change the oil every six months or
5,000 miles or to perform the additional services listed in the charts. This
added maintenance is required only if
you drive primarily under any of the
special operating conditions.

EXPLANATION OF MAINTENANCE ITEMS
The following descriptions are provided to give you a better understanding of the maintenance services that
should be performed on your vehicle.
The scheduled maintenance log indicates at which time/mileage intervals
each service should be performed.
Please note that many maintenance
services should be performed only
by a qualified technician.
MAINTENANCE
For further information on
maintenance services that you
can perform yourself, see the
maintenance sections of your
Owner’s Manual.
68

69
EXPLANATION OF MAINTENANCE ITEMS
Engine Coolant
When inspecting, visually check
the level of the engine coolant on the
see-through reservoir. Add coolant
as necessary. When replacing, drain
the cooling system and refill with
coolant. Always use Genuine Toyota
Super Long-Life Coolant or similar
high-quality non-silicate, non-amine,
non-nitrate, non-borate ethyleneglycol coolant with long-life hybrid
organic acid technology (i.e., a combination of low phosphates and organic
acids). A qualified technician should
perform these operations.
Check the radiator and condenser
for blockage by leaves, dirt or insects
and clean if necessary. Also check
the hose connections for corrosion
and condition of installation.
MAINTENANCE
Note: Initial replacement of engine
coolant is at 120 months/100,000
miles. Replace every 60 months/
50,000 miles thereafter.
70
Scheduled Maintenance Log
Engine Oil and Oil Filter
Replace the oil filter and drain and
refill the engine oil at specified intervals. SAE 0W-20 oil is the best
choice for good fuel economy and
good starting in cold weather. If SAE
0W-20 is not available, SAE 5W-20
may be used; however, it must be
replaced with SAE 0W-20 at the next
oil change. See your Lexus dealer for
oil specifically formulated for your
vehicle’s engine. For instructions on
how to reset the reminder light, refer
to your Owner’s Manual.
Note: If you do the majority of your
driving under any of the special
operating conditions indicated on
page 44, you should replace the
engine oil and oil filter every six
months or 5,000 miles, regardless of
the oil used or the certification of the
vehicle.
Exhaust Pipes and Mountings
Visually inspect the exhaust pipes,
muffler and hangers for cracks,
deterioration and damage. Start
the engine and listen carefully for
any exhaust leakage. Tighten connections and replace parts as necessary.
EXPLANATION OF MAINTENANCE ITEMS
Fuel Lines and Connections, Fuel
Tank Band and Fuel Tank Vapor
Vent System Hoses
Visually inspect for corrosion, damage, cracks, and loose or leaking
connections. Tighten connections
and replace parts as necessary.
Road Test
While driving the vehicle, check for
proper operation of engine, transmission, brakes and steering. Also check
the parking brake, and check for
abnormal noise or vibration from
any part of the vehicle.
Fuel Tank Cap Gasket
Visually inspect for cracks, deterioration and damage and replace if
necessary.
Spark Plugs
Replace at specified interval. Install
new plugs of the same type as originally equipped (see your Owner’s
Manual ). A qualified technician should
perform this operation. To ensure
optimum engine performance,
replace only with Denso FK20HR11
plugs or equivalent.
Nuts and Bolts on Chassis
Check that tightness of the seatmounting bolts and front/rear
suspension-member retaining bolts
matches torque measurements specified in the Repair Manual.
Scheduled Maintenance Log
MAINTENANCE
Rack-and-Pinion Assembly
Inspect the rack-and-pinion assembly
for signs of leakage, damage and
loose electrical connections. Tighten
connections and if you discover any
leakage or damage, have it repaired
immediately by a qualified technician.
Steering Linkage and Boots
With the vehicle stopped, check for
excessive freeplay in the steering
wheel. Inspect the linkage for bending
and damage and the dust boots for
deterioration, cracks and damage.
Replace any damaged parts. A qualified technician should perform these
operations.
71
EXPLANATION OF MAINTENANCE ITEMS
Timing Chain
The timing chain requires no periodic
inspection.
Tire Rotation
See your Owner’s Manual for tire
rotation requirements. Check tire
pressure and check tires for damage
and uneven wear. If the vehicle is
equipped with a spare tire, check the
condition and pressure of the spare.
MAINTENANCE
Tire-Pressure Warning Sensors
A tire-pressure sensor is mounted on
each full-size wheel. These sensors
do not require periodic maintenance.
