How Often Should I Change the Oil in my Lexus?

The type of oil you use in your engine will help determine how often you should change your oil. At Lexus, we recommend regular maintenance visits every six months/5,000 miles to keep your luxury vehicle in peak running condition. Depending on your needs, our factory-trained and equipped technicians will:

  • Inspect and adjust all fluid levels
  • Replace engine oil and filter
  • Replace cabin air filter
  • Rotate tires
  • Visually inspect brake pads, calipers, and rotors

If you use synthetic oil in your Lexus, we recommend changing it every 12 months/10,000 miles. However, if your Lexus runs with conventional motor oil, you should have the oil changed every six months/5,000 miles. The way you operate your Lexus can have an impact on how often you should change your oil. Consult one of our service professionals online or at (855) 891-3625 to discern the proper oil change interval for your vehicle.

If you purchase a new Lexus, you will have two complimentary service visits at six months/5,000 miles and 12 months/10,000 miles, whichever comes first. When you come in for these service visits, we'll help you determine whether you need to change the oil in your Lexus. The oil and filter change is included with these complimentary visits.

How Do I Know I Need to Change my Oil?

There are several ways for you to know when you need to change your oil. The first is to follow our service schedule. If your Lexus is a 2016 model or newer, consider a Lexus Enform Service Connect subscription for the ultimate service reminder convenience. You can monitor the oil life in your Lexus online or through the Lexus app. Lexus Enform will also send you maintenance alerts, and can even enable us to contact you when it's time to schedule service. Alternately, you can simply contact us online or at (855) 891-3625 and we'll be happy to help.

What Kind of Oil Do I Need?

The type and age of the vehicle you drive will help determine whether you should use synthetic or conventional engine oil. Check your owner's manual or contact one of our dealership service representatives at (855) 891-3625 to discern which oil is best for your Lexus.

Synthetic Oil


Most new Lexus models are designed to operate with genuine Lexus SAE 0W-20 synthetic engine oil. Your luxury vehicle features an advanced engine; synthetic oil is designed to support and protect that performance, as well as offer a few key benefits:

  • Resists breakdown and lasts longer
  • Operates better in high-temperature situations - like the California heat
  • Flows better in cold temperatures

Conventional Oil


Conventional engine oil is often used in many older Lexus models. Check your owner's manual to see whether your favorite Lexus luxury vehicle requires conventional oil. Models that recommend 5W-20 oil, but allow 0W-20 synthetic oil may make the switch. However, you will still need to follow the 6 month/5,000 mile oil change schedule. If you're unsure whether to use conventional oil or not, our Lexus specialists will be happy to help you.
