Lexus Rx 350 owners in the Sarasota area have one common thread running through them. They want their vehicle to always be in top-class condition and making sure that happens is simple to do by paying attention to the Lexus RX 350 maintenance schedule.

What is the Lexus RX 350 Maintenance Schedule?

Lexus factory recommendations encourage Lexus RX 350 vehicles to visit a service center every 5,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first. Your Lexus RX 350 will then be checked on each visit for wear and tear on various important components and systems, and necessary repairs will be carried out with owner approval.
