Why Do People Choose Lexus?
While carefree motoring was engineered into your Lexus, it’s maintenance that ensures your Lexus retains its showroom poise.
Routine servicing at Lexus of Parramatta with genuine Lexus parts and Lexus trained technicians is the most reliable way to maintain your vehicle. But the motorist’s role in vehicle maintenance can be just as important as that of a technician. An owner’s observation of their vehicle’s performance is an important maintenance tool.
Look, Listen and Feel
Good maintenance starts with simple observation.
Your dashboard has a range of sophisticated warning systems that indicate anomalies and potential problems, both mechanical and electrical. Understanding what lights and alarms are telling us allows for immediate assessment. Your Lexus manual provides a detailed explanation of what each system’s warning means, and how you should respond. Familiarising yourself with these systems is at the heart of good maintenance.
A common example might be a temperature gauge sitting at a much higher level than you are used to. A reason is that your engine cooling system is low on water or coolant, which may be remedied by a simple top-up. However, investigation may be required by a Lexus technician to provide a diagnosis and repair.
We quickly become familiar with the way our car sounds and feels when driving in a variety of conditions. Many of us have experienced moments when there is a noise, vibration, or general feeling that something is not quite right. Trust your experience and instincts. Unusual sounds and performance are a good indicator something might be wrong.
The Benefits of Washing your Car
Having your car professionally cleaned inside and out is the gold-standard for maintaining duco and upholstery. Professional deep cleans add life and showroom appeal to the luxury aesthetics. However, regularly cleaning your Lexus yourself allows you to observe possible issues you may not come across otherwise.
A front wheel with uneven wear indicates a suspension or wheel alignment problem. Again, these are observations that require no mechanical knowledge yet contribute significantly to keeping your Lexus reliable via timely maintenance.
A great tip for duco care is to avoid parking under trees. Tree litter can be very damaging to vehicle paint. Bird droppings are worse still and if not removed can crack the clearcoat protecting your duco.
