Come See Us For an Oil Change!

It goes without saying that proper automotive maintenance is a must, but determining when your vehicle is due for repairs isn’t always straightforward. For this reason, the Service Department at Pohanka Lexus is here to bring you up to speed on oil changes! Specifically, we’ll address how often you should have this job performed and what makes regular servicing so beneficial. That way, your Lexus sedan, coupe, or SUV continues to perform just like it should.

Importance of Oil Changes

In case you’re not already aware, oil performs an essential function within the mechanics of your vehicle. As your powertrain’s primary lubricant, it ensures that all the difference gears and pistons move smoothly rather than rubbing against each other. Furthermore, it assists in regulating this intricate system’s operating temperature, removes harmful combustion byproducts, and keeps your engine clean. On the other hand, when your supply of oil is old and congealed, it fails to perform its various roles as effectively, creating all sorts of issues and potential damage down the road. As a result, it’s absolutely imperative to swap out oil once it reaches the end of its lifespan!

Timeline

Although your Lexus vehicle is most likely equipped with an internal sensor that tells you when you’re due for this type of service, it’s still important to know how often to have this task performed. For example, if you only drive on occasion, then you might think that you don’t need to change your oil until the system tells you to. In fact, even if you’re not reminded to do so, you should still change your oil at least once a year. We recommend coming by every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or three to six months in order to stay on top of things for regularly-driven vehicles. You can also stay up to date by checking your specific Lexus model’s maintenance timeline through the Lexus service portal.

Visit Us Soon!

Entrusting Pohanka Lexus with your vehicle’s regular upkeep is a wise decision for several reason. First, we employ factory-certified technicians, so we know how to treat your IS 300, UX 200, and LC 500 with the care and attention it deserves. Plus, for your convenience, oil changes are included in our Express Service program, so we can get the job done in an efficient manner. Of course, if you don’t mind waiting around, then you’ll be able to do so in our upscale customer lounge, complete with wide-screen TVs, refreshments, and even a convenient Business Center.

So, how often should I get an oil change? Hopefully, this brief overview has cleared a few things up for you. If you’re indeed ready for this type of service, visit Pohanka Lexus and experience for yourself what makes our dealership stand out from the rest!

I purchased my first SUV at the beginning of the year and the service was excellent. I knew what I wanted when I walked in and Jay made sure I received everything on my must have list. He even threw in a few deals that I did not know about. I loved my experience with Pohanka. Jay even called me a couple weeks after my purchase to see if I still loved my SUV, and again on my birthday (5 months later)! If Chantilly were closer, I would definitely use their service center.

We have been Pohanka Lexus satisfied customers since 2007. During this time, we have moved seemlessly from owning to leasing. We keep coming back to Pohanka because of their professionalism, courtesy, excellent service department, and open lines of communication to ascertain what we want in our vehicle. This is also because of our sales agent, Christy, who has been exceptional at her job. She has been there for us throughout the duration of our Lexus experience. Her longevity is a testament to the solid business acumen of Pohanka Lexus.

I went to purchase a vehicle and I did it because I knew exactly what I want. However, the rest of the experience it was ok, the seller was to busy to assist me to drive the vehicle and then to proceed with the papers. The financing department is not very responsive, I am trying to have the buyers order sent to my bank but he still haven’t done it after 5 days. The seller that helped me was very nice and worked very quick to complete the sale. Overall, I recommended the dealer because is one of the few certified in the area, but when it comes to the sale representative I have a different opinion. Some are good but many have no customer respect. I am saying this because was very hard finding someone to help me take the vehicle for a drive. Were so many sale rep, over 10 sale rep on the floor and they act like they don’t see me, even If I asked for help. Very unprofessional attitude. I had someone finally that came out even if she had a customer and help me to take the vehicle for a drive. The management was absent. That’s how I see it, like they weren’t interested in marking any sales. I wish them best of luck.

Really impressed with their level of customer service. I scheduled an appointment to get a repair. I waited in a great waiting room and once they finished inspecting, the service associate, Albert, broke down what needed to be done. He explained cost and gave me other alternatives. As someone who knows NOTHING about cars, I really appreciated the detail. I could tell from Albert’s suggestions that Lexus cares more about customer satisfaction then trying to get a lot of money from you. Looking forward to using them in the future for maintenance!

Always great service. They seem to really want to take care of their customers. I bought my car there and always have it serviced there and I'll buy my next car there. Nice people. They stand behind their work and I can always count on it being done right. My car is a 2012 and performs like new. I thank Pohanka for that.

Everything was okay up until the time service advisor approached me to recommend my car needing a transmission flush, power steering fluid flush and saying I need to replace my two drive belts. I just purchased the car in September 2019 from Pohanka Lexus Chantilly and only have driven the car 3,000 miles of the 65,000 on the car. This warrants a second opinion from another shop for sure.

I have been servicing my cars here for almost 10 years and have influenced multiple family members to buy lexus and to service at Pohanka. Right now, my favorite service advisor is Laggi!!! I love that they are open every day until late in the evening and offer loaner cars. My wife and I both drive lexus: we are loyal customers.
