Routine Maintenance Delay

Consult your maintenance manual to see if extending the oil change interval is allowed under the 6 year / 70,000 mile power train warranty for your model.

ahhh, good point, will have to check it out..though a couple of thou miles either way prob does not make a difference

even if I stick closer to the 5k service, I will continue to use the synthetic..the more I read about the benefits of the synthetic the more obvious it is that it is worth the extra money..especially if driving a mostly local, and a bit aggressive

if you paid up for a Lexus, seems silly not to use the synthetic..everybody on board with that?

I would never even consider doing this. Not that it would cause any issues, it probably wouldn't, but if Lexus ever has the opportunity to pin a claim on you using longer oil change intervals then they will. I use synthetic too, but change it at 5k miles.

yip, was leaning towards sticking with the scheduled maintenance, but your advice seals it for me

I will make an appt soon..somewhere between 10, and 11k miles now so still ok for regular 5k service

and yeah, I will still use the synthetic, that seems like a no-brainer

had the 10k service...essentially a $200 oil change,lol...but not comfortable bringing it anywhere else

with my previous cars, all maxima's, I just brought them to jiffy lube and only went to the dealer if something major was needed, essentially never...synthetic oil change at jiffy was well under $100 as I recall
