COMPLIMENTARY SERVICES

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,

Towing to the nearest Lexus dealership (or an alternate repair facility, if necessary).

Assistance in locating alternate transportation and lodging.

1) Call (800) 25-LEXUS (800/255-

3987).

OTHER BENEFITS AND ASSISTANCE

Quality Control

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.

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

OTHER BENEFITS AND ASSISTANCE 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 back-up 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 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.

IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE

Step 3

If your concern has still not been resolved to your satisfaction, Lexus offers additional assistance through:

National Center for Dispute

Settlement (NCDS)

P.O. Box 457

Mt. Clemens, MI 48046

(866) 272-4872

Important: You must use NCDS prior to exercising rights or seeking remedies available to you through a court action pursuant to the Magnuson-

Moss 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.

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.

10

Introduction

2013 GS 350_9-38a 11/18/11 7:06 PM Page 11

IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE

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.

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

2013 GS 350_9-38a 11/18/11 7:06 PM Page 12

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.

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.

IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE

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.

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.

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.

You’ve made a wise decision to purchase a Lexus. Your vehicle delivers world-class luxury and performance, along with an unparalleled commitment from Lexus to ensuring your satisfaction. You can be confident — as we are — that you’ll enjoy owning your

Lexus as much as you enjoy driving it.

FEDERAL EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY

WHAT IS COVERED

AND HOW LONG

Emission Defect Warranty

Lexus warrants that your vehicle:

Was designed, built and equipped to conform at the time of sale with applicable federal emissions standards.

Is free from defects in materials and workmanship that may cause the vehicle to fail to meet these standards.

Federal regulations require that this warranty be in effect for two years or

24,000 miles from the vehicle’s inservice date, whichever occurs first.

However, under the terms of the Basic

Warranty, Lexus provides coverage of four years or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Specific components may have longer coverage under the terms of the Powertrain Warranty.

Additionally, components marked

“8/80” in the parts list on pages

23–24 have coverage of eight years or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

Emission Performance

Warranty

Some states and localities have established vehicle inspection and maintenance (I/M) programs to encourage proper vehicle maintenance. If an

EPA-approved I/M program is in force in your area, you are eligible for Emission Performance Warranty coverage.

Under the terms of the Emission

Performance Warranty and federal regulations, Lexus will make all necessary repairs if both of the following occur:

Your vehicle fails to meet applicable emissions standards as determined by an EPA-approved emissions test.

This failure results or will result in some penalty to you — such as a fine or denial of the right to use your vehicle — under local, state or federal law.

This warranty is in effect for two years or 24,000 miles from the vehicle’s in-service date, whichever occurs first. Additionally, components marked “8/80” in the parts list on pages 23–24 have coverage of eight years or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

MAINTENANCE

You are responsible for performance of the required maintenance indicated in the Owner’s Manual and this guide.

Lexus will not deny a warranty claim solely because you do not have records to show that you maintained your vehicle. However, any failure or noncompliance caused by lack of maintenance is not covered by this warranty.

When maintenance and repairs are paid for by you, these services may be performed by you or by any automotive service provider you choose.

Lexus will not deny a warranty claim solely because you used a service provider other than a Lexus dealership for maintenance and repairs.

However, any failure or noncompliance caused by improper maintenance or repairs is not covered by this warranty.

REPLACEMENT PARTS

To ensure optimum performance and maintain the quality built into your vehicle’s emission control systems,

Lexus recommends the use of

Genuine Lexus Parts when servicing or repairing the systems.

Warranty coverage is not dependent upon the use of any particular brand of replacement parts and you may elect to use non-Genuine Lexus

Parts for maintenance and repairs.

However, use of replacement parts that are not equivalent in quality to

Genuine Lexus Parts may impair the effectiveness of the emission control systems.

If you use replacement parts that have maintenance or replacement schedules different from those of Genuine

Lexus Parts, you must follow the maintenance and replacement schedules for the parts you are using. In addition, you should ensure that such parts are warranted by their manufacturers to be equivalent to Genuine Lexus Parts.

If your claim qualifies for coverage, the dealership will repair your vehicle within 30 days (unless a shorter period is required by law). If your claim is denied, Lexus will notify you in writing of the reason within the same period.

If we fail to do so, we will repair your vehicle free of charge. The only exceptions allowed are when you request or agree to a delay, or when a delay is caused by factors beyond the control of Lexus or the dealership.

GENERAL

INFORMATION

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 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 will not deny a warranty claim solely because you do not have records to show that you maintained your vehicle. However, damage or failures caused by lack of proper maintenance are not covered under warranty.

WHERE TO GO

FOR MAINTENANCE

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.

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.

You can be confident you’re getting the best possible service for your vehicle when you take it to a Lexus dealership. Plus, a Lexus dealership will always use Genuine Lexus Parts designed specifically for your vehicle.

Lexus Parts when you need to replace a part on your vehicle. Like all Lexus products, Genuine Lexus Parts are built to the highest standards of 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 their own warranty (see your dealer for details) or the remainder of any applicable New Vehicle Limited

Lexus recommends having maintenance and repairs for your vehicle performed by an authorized Lexus dealership.

To locate your nearest authorized Lexus dealership, log on to www.lexus.com or contact

Lexus Customer Satisfaction at (800) 255-3987.

Maintenance and repairs not performed by an authorized

Lexus dealership should be performed by a qualified technician following procedures in Lexus service and repair publications.

If your vehicle is inoperable or unsafe to drive and there is no Lexus dealership reasonably available to make repairs, you may perform the repairs yourself or have them performed by another automotive service provider.

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 deliver 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.

You can be confident you’re getting the best possible service for your vehicle when you take it to a Lexus dealership. Don’t trust your investment to anything less than a team of

Lexus specialists.

Maintenance and repairs not performed by an authorized

Lexus dealership should be performed by a qualified technician following procedures in Lexus service and repair publications.

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.

Every 30 Days

At least once every 30 days, perform these inspections:

Check engine oil level using the dipstick

Visually check engine coolant level on the see-through reservoir

Visually check brake fluid level on the see-through reservoir

Visually check condition of battery

Check level of windshield washer fluid

Check tire pressure

Check tires for damage and wear

Check installation of driver’s floor mat

After a Car Wash

Check installation of driver’s floor mat

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.

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.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND REGULAR USE

When Cleaning the Exterior

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

For further information on maintenance services that you can perform yourself, see the maintenance sections of your

Owner’s Manual.

Air Conditioner Filter

Replace at specified intervals. More frequent replacement may be required when driving in dusty conditions, heavy traffic areas, urban areas, desert areas or dirt roads. Refer to your Owner’s Manual for service details.

Axle Shaft Boots

Check the axle shaft boots and clamps for cracks, deterioration and damage. Replace any damaged parts and, if necessary, repack the grease.

A qualified technician should perform these operations.

Ball Joints and Dust Covers

Check the suspension and steering linkage ball joints for looseness and damage. Check all dust covers for deterioration and damage. A qualified technician should perform these inspections.

Body Inspection

Visually check for corrosion, scratches and other damage. Check outer body panels, inner panels of the hood and doors, and underneath the vehicle. Apply touch-up paint to any chips and scratches or have them repaired by a qualified technician.

Brake Fluid

Replace using fluid type specified in your Owner’s Manual. A qualified technician should perform this operation.

Brake Lines and Hoses

Visually inspect for proper installation.

Check for chafing, cracks, deterioration and signs of leakage. Replace any deteriorated or damaged parts.

A qualified technician should perform these operations.

Scheduled Maintenance Log

2013 GS 350_48-76b 11/18/11 8:55 PM Page 69

EXPLANATION OF MAINTENANCE ITEMS

Brake Pads, Calipers and Rotors

Check brake pads and rotors for excessive wear; check brake rotors for runout. Check brake calipers for fluid leakage. Some models are equipped with directional rotors.

When servicing these rotors, reinstall at same location. A qualified technician should perform these operations.

Differential Oil

Inspect each differential component for signs of leakage. If you discover any leakage, have it repaired immediately by a qualified technician. Refer to your Owner’s Manual for fluid specifications.

Drive Belt

Inspect for cracks, excessive wear and oiliness. Check the belt tension and adjust if necessary. Replace the belt if it is damaged.

Driver’s Floor Mat

Only use the driver’s floor mat designed specifically for the model and model year of your vehicle, such as Lexus Genuine floor mats.

Always properly secure the driver’s floor mat using the retaining hooks.

Never install another floor mat on top of the existing driver’s floor mat.

Never install the driver’s floor mat upside down.

Engine Air Filter

Check for excessive dirt, damage and oiliness. Replace if necessary.

Engine Coolant

When inspecting, visually check the engine coolant level on the seethrough 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 ethylene-glycol coolant with long-life hybrid organic acid technology (i.e., a combination of low phosphates and organic acids). Check that the radiator is not blocked with leaves, dirt or insects and clean if necessary. Also check the hose connection for corrosion and condition of installation.

A qualified technician should perform these operations.

Note: Initial replacement is at 120 months/100,000 miles. Replace every 60 months/50,000 miles thereafter.

EXPLANATION OF MAINTENANCE ITEMS

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.

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.

Fuel Tank Cap Gasket

Visually inspect for cracks, deterioration and damage and replace if necessary.

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.

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.

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.

EXPLANATION OF MAINTENANCE ITEMS

Spark Plugs

Replace at specified interval. Install new plugs of the same type as originally equipped. A qualified technician should perform this operation.

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.

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.

Tire-Pressure Warning Sensors

A tire-pressure sensor is mounted on each full-size wheel. These sensors do not require periodic maintenance.

When a sensor’s long-life lithium battery becomes discharged, the battery should be replaced by a qualified technician following procedures in

Lexus service and repair publications.

Transmission/Transfer Case

Inspect transmission/transfer case for signs of leakage. If you discover any leakage, have it repaired immediately by a qualified technician.

Note: The transmission/transfer case and transmission fluid are a completely sealed unit. Therefore, periodic checks and replacement of the transmission fluid are not required, and there is no dipstick on the transmission. Any repairs that require adding or replacing fluid should be performed by a qualified technician following procedures in Lexus service and repair publications.
