Who's done it? Any problems? Did you have to order parts?
That is absolutely false.good timing. my little light came on today telling me I got 500 before i need an oil service so I want to know too. How much did it cost?
Also, does getting it done at toyota count as getting it Lexus serviced too? I only ask because if there is any warranty issues with the engine they will void the warranty if all required maintenance is not done with an approved provider.
GotchaThat is absolutely false.
It is illegal to "void" a warranty because you didn't pay a Lexus dealer for service. (just as it's illegal to void a warranty simply because you used something other than an OEM part)
You can do it -yourself- if you want to, or pay anyone on earth to do it, so long as you can prove it was done (ie keep the receipts).
I've rarely seen a Lexus dealer charging less than $100 for an oil change, based on the numerous threads on the topic here and over at clublexus.
Thx! Good to know. I'm gonna be living in an area that puts the nearest Lexus dealership at least 90 miles away.I just had mine changed at the nearby Toyota Dealership b/c it's geographically more convenient and they charged me $35. I haven't been to the Lexus dealership here so I'm not sure what they charge. But the mechanic told me it's the same engine as the Avalon so they're pretty familiar with it.
$80 for dead dinosaur juice, $150 for synthetic.
