Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts

Hi!  On average, how much does the 2016 RX 450h 30,000 mile maintenance cost?  What services/ replacement parts are included?  My Lexus dealership said I should expect high cost.  Not sure what "high cost" to be expecting...  I'd be most appreciative to anyone that can tell me what you paid for your 30k mile check-up.

What the 30,000 maintenance "should" cost and what a Lexus dealership wants to charge you are two completely different concepts.   Your RX450h is mechanically identical and requires the same 30,000 mile maintenance as a Toyota Highlander hybrid.  Don't let a Lexus dealership service writer tell you otherwise.  Their job is to sell services including unneeded ones.  

I would expect the 30K maintenance for a 2016 Toyota Highlander hybrid to cost between $200 and $300 depending on where you live and the billing rates.  The Toyota Sienna I drive now is mechanically identical to the Lexus RX350 and its 30,000 mile service cost $189 at a Toyota dealership a couple of years ago.

I suggest that you call the Lexus dealership before you make an appointment and ask what a 30,000 mile maintenance on a 2016 RX450h costs.  If they aren't willing to tell you then don't do business with the dealership.  Some Toyota dealerships will do the maintenance at a lower cost as long as it is not owned by the same company as the Lexus dealership.

Or find an independent repair shop that specializes in Lexus.  The ones I used during most of my 24 years driving Lexus LS sedan were owned and staffed by former Lexus dealership employees, charged substantially less and weren't always trying to sell me unneeded services.

There's not all that much to do on the 30K RX450h service.  You can view the requirements in your maintenance booklet or online at

      Hi, I’ve seen others post about this issue on the form but haven’t found a solution. 
      My iPhone easily paired with the car and I can use it for hands free calling, but the audio won’t stream via BT. I can connect vis USB (although that is temperamental and will suddenly say it can’t read the device after it’s  already been using it) but sometimes I just want to quickly connect to music. This is not new but I’m finally trying to get it to work.
      Any suggestions?

      I need to find a 12 volt battery for my 2015 450h. My dealer's parts department doesn't respond (?) so I'm looking for an independent source in Toronto or nearby.
      Any suggestions would be appreciated. I know the battery is a type 35 AGM but with vent tube fitting. Doesn't need a whole lot of CCA seeing as it doesn't do much work. Has to be small to fit in under the trunk.

      My 450h has started a beeping noise at about 2 second intervals from the area of the navigation screen. There are no warning or other caution lights associated with the noise. It is consistent whether the power is on or off. The dealer had no idea what it could be, they claim to have never had  the issue before now.

      I recently got a certified 2014 450h with 55K miles.  It has bumper to bumper warranty upto Aug 2020.  Being a first time Lexus and a hybrid owner, i opted for the extended warranty upto 2022 for an additional $3K.  Can some 450h owners give their views on the extended warranty.  I do not drive much, average of about 8000 miles in a year.  Will it be worth the additional 2 years as the car will be about 7 years old after 2021.    Please provide your inputs.

      Folks, and Forum Admin,
      Please make a separate section on the Forum for 2016 RX models. THese have had major changes since 2015. The engine has been tweaked, there are scores of safety improvements and the look is way different.  I am sure the issues will be different as well. So please rename the 2010-Present section to say 2010-2015 and keep it separate from 2016 onwards.
