Is Lexus Maintenance Expensive? 

Lexus Luxury Care Prepaid Maintenance

Lexus offers the first two regularly scheduled maintenance visits as complimentary. If you plan on having your Lexus model for a long time, you can opt for the Lexus Luxury Care prepaid maintenance. The plans are variable in price, ranging from two years or 20,000 miles to five years or 90,000 miles so owners can pay for future maintenance at current prices.

The services covered include oil and filter changes, tire rotations, multipoint inspections, and any additional services in the scheduled maintenance log of your Lexus vehicle. Once you schedule your service appointment and visit our Clearwater dealership, you simply need to show a prepaid maintenance card to inform us you are covered by the Lexus luxury care plan.
