When you buy or lease a new Lexus vehicle like the Lexus IS, you can rest assured that it’s ready for your next road trip. If you’ve owned your current automobile for a while, it’s advisable to do a few things before you hit the road to head out of town.

Millions of people will travel 50 miles or more away from home this holiday season. If you’re one of them, your to-do list to get your car ready for your upcoming adventure should start with making an appointment to bring your vehicle into our Lexus service center near St. Augustine, FL.

To prep your car for your holiday trip, our factory-trained technicians will check your fluid levels. In general, automobiles have six critical fluids they need to operate properly: motor oil, radiator fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield wiper fluid. Because these fluids are so important to your car’s seamless operation, we’ll make sure that none of them need to be changed and your vehicle has enough of each one.

Your tires are vital to keeping you and everyone on the road with you safe. When you arrive for your service appointment, our technicians will inspect your tires to ensure they’re ready for the rigors of the road. As we work on your car, we suggest you visit our Jacksonville, FL Lexus parts center. Once there, you can pick up a tire pressure monitor. During your road trip, you should check your tire pressure regularly or at least every 1,000 miles to make sure your tires are properly inflated.
