Default Free Maintenance for 2 years/25,000 miles

One of the dealers here in Houston is offering free maintenance for 2 years/25K if you purchase a car from them. Are there other deals out there?

I got two free oil changes when I bought mine so that will take me to 20k miles.

That's really only a $90 value, but better than nothing, I guess.

Not trying to downplay the OP's deal, but there's really not much required maintenance the first 20k miles unless the dealer is going to provide 5k synthetic oil changes instead of the Lexus recommended 10k. The 5k and 10k services are complimentary and come with the purchase or lease of all Lexus vehicles.

^^This... It's just marketing to get ppl like this excited. It's really not much maintanance and the oil they'll put I can bet it's not synthetic.

It's synthetic oil.That's the only way 0w20 weight is available.
Like you said,it's a marketing thing,though.

I just got an email saying that my car is due for 6 month/5k maintenance. What exactly is done, just rotate tires and some inspection? I thought oil change was 10k interval?

Yes, plus you can have them change settings on things like lane change blinker, etc...

In the same line, my 300h is coming up on its 18 month, 15k (but has only 13000 miles) service. Other than inspection, is it worth it to bring it in? If I don't, will this affect the warranty? What do others here do?
