New Member - my first Lexus


Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm the proud owner of my first Lexus after my last car expired on the A303 recently.

I have a low mileage sub 44k 2009 Lexus IS250 i in red.  It's had a quiet life before my ownership but I'm beginning to pile on the miles.

I shall need some top up oil.  I can ask elsewhere on the forum but can anyone kindly confirm the best grade of oil - I think it's probably 5W-30 and I'm guessing that's fully synthetic? 

The car is a dream to drive!

Hi Michael and welcome to is250 ownership and the best Lexus forum there is. 

Why do you require top up oil? Our cars don't drink oil unless there's an underlying issue. Has your car got a full lexus service history? I'd suggest book it in with your nearest lexus dealer for a service and a checkup. More than reasonable prices. 

44k miles in 11 years is very rare and a great find. Enjoy it pal. I know I enjoy and love mine.

The IS manuals on the Lexus.co.uk website only seem to go back as far as 2011.

 But they do confirm the use of 5W - 30 for those engines.

If the car was sold and serviced  by a Lexus dealer, then it’s possible that if you go to the Lexus site and sign in to the My Lexus section, you may find that all the service history is recorded there.

All the best with it!
