Default 2006 IS-250 60000 mile service

I take my 2006 IS-250 to the local EAGLE Tire and Automotive to change the oil with no problem.

My car is approaching 60000 miles.

Is there any technical reason why EAGLE would have trouble changing the spark plugs? That, plus oil change, plus new air filter and a few fluids should cover the service.

Thank you.

Taking my 08 IS250 in for its 60k tomorrow afternoon. It'll go to the Lexus dealer... just gonna pay the extra $$ so I know that everything is done superbly and I'm good for a long time. Didn't have good luck getting my Tundra serviced at Tires Plus...

You should have bought the plugs from Sewell Lexus as you local dealer will try to rape you on the parts.

I hope you didnt ask for the "60k mile service" and only asked for the services that you needed done

^^^ exactly thats why I only got the plug change because for the 60k service its like $900 so thats why I only change the plug and oil change and I have the f-sport intake so I clean that myself and change the cabin filter myself.

You should also flush the brake fluid if you havent done so. Every 30k

Maybe I'm wrong here but wouldnt you want to do this as recommended seeing as you and the OP own a 250 and that engine has been known to have a carbon issue. Are the two not related in some way?

I would change the spark plugs every 60k regardless of what engine I have. 100k is really pushing it IMO

spark plugs arent that bad to do yourself if you have the tools, differential fluid is easy to change too which is another thing at 60k

Only if you have an 06 AWD 2IS, otherwise skip it.
