Lexus Maintenance Costs


Recommended Posts

As a testament to just how reliable the Lexus is, I just totaled my expenditures

for my '93 SC400 which will be 13 years old this Sept.

Granted I have rather low milage (just under 70K) but none the less, I feel

$2280 to date is a very low cost for upkeep.

This total includes all oil/filter changes, all fluid (coolant, transmission, rear axle,

etc.) changes, new tires, mechanical repairs (a/c pressure control valve and

p/s pump repairs..both done personally), new serpentine belt, windshield

wipers, headlights and other misc stuff. Also included is a power window repair

job now in progress.

Soon I will need to do the timing belt and water pump but at present the belt

looks good on the grip side.

Probably having the car garage-kept helps a lot but I think keeping a car up for

an average of $175/yr is pretty impressive.

Thought this might be of some interest to those who appreciate the reliability

of Lexus autos.

Thanks for sharing LEXIE B) It's the old story, if you take care of your car, your car will take care of you. ;) Sounds like you also do what I like to call 'preventitive maintenance'. If I maintain my ES like that, I would expect nothing less. :) Enjoy!

:cheers:
