2013 Lexus GS 350: 10,000-Mile Service

February 19, 2013

2013 Lexus GS 350

Yesterday we called Lexus Santa Monica to schedule a service appointment for our 2013 Lexus GS 350. We asked for the earliest possible opening. The advisor scheduled us in for 7 o'clock this morning. It was easy.

We showed up on time and were met by our service writer, Mario, promptly. He processed our car quickly, explained the details of the work to be completed, and had us on our way before we knew it. We'll ask for him by name next time.

As for the work itself, this was the 10,000-mile interval. It called for fresh oil, a new oil filter and a new cabin air filter. Lexus pays for the first two scheduled maintenance visits, which was a good thing, because I had forgotten my wallet. Overall, this was a good experience. We'll be back in another 5,000 miles, I'd imagine.

    Your license wasn't in your wallet was it? I don't like this idea of saying Lexus paid for the service. Really, you paid for it when you bought the car with the cost of the service rolled into the price. And considering what dealerships charge for service, it isn't hard to see why cars as astronomically expensive.
