Benefits of Getting Consistent Mechanical Check-Ups

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your vehicle, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by expert Lexus service center at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your car at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up with routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling it will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your Lexus’ fuel economy can be negatively affected by up to 20%.

What to Look for When Buying a Used Lexus

If you’re looking for a luxury car but don’t want to pay for a brand new model, a used Lexus is the way to go.

Here are five things that you should do before buying a used Lexus:

  1. Read the Records: Check the serial number with your local Lexus dealer for a service history. If they don’t have a history, make sure it has credible records from the owner.
  2. Professional Inspection: Even if you ran a vehicle history report, you should still have the car inspected by a mechanic to find potential issues and to determine if the car has been in an unreported accident.
  3. Tire Service: The tires should be worn evenly and they should match. Look at the surface of the tire for feathering (bad alignment). Bad alignment can be caused by worn steering/suspension components, the Chicago potholes, or frame damage.
  4. Certified Pre-Owned: The certification provides a long-term warranty which is only offered after a rigorous 161-point test fully resolving any visual or technical flaws. It also includes 24/7 roadside assistance, complimentary maintenance covering the next four factory-recommended services for two years or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first, and an unlimited mileage vehicle warranty.
  5. Test Drive: You’re judging your comfort level with the car. Do the power windows all work? Do the safety locks power successfully? Check for small trepidation at 45/55/65/ 75 mph, which may mean wear of the mechanical parts which could be a costly fix. You have to be comfortable with your ride before you put down the cash.

History of Lexus

While some vehicles can trace their history back to the early 1900’s, Lexus is relatively young in that it was 1983 when a Japanese entrepreneur by the name of Eiji Toyoda, the Chairman of the Toyota Motor Company, announced their objective to build “the best car in the world.”

Toyota began a secret project code-named Flagship One (F1) with the goal of expanding Toyota’s product line, but it was a daunting task. They were told it needed to reach 250 km/h, while consuming less than 10.51 L/100km. This seemed nearly impossible, but six years and a billion dollars later, their innovative ideas, new processes and revolutionary designs created the Lexus LS 400.

In doing so, they also changed car manufacturing forever.

The LS400 was unique in the sense that it didn’t contain any of the main elements of vehicles the Toyota Motor Company had produced in the past. More than 100 designers, 1,000 engineers, and 2,000 technicians took part in developing an extremely high standard vehicle.

It paid off, as the LS400 beat out both the Mercedes-Benz 420 SE and BMW 735i as reviewed by Car and Driver Magazine in that first year. As a result, this had an adverse effect on the sales of Mercedes-Benz and BMWs in the US, where figures dropped by 29% and 19% respectively.
