I get the service done at the dealer so that it shows up on Carfax. Good for resale, especially since typically those looking for used luxury cars pretty much expect to see the car maintained at the dealer. (I know, us enthusiasts are different, but hey)

I think it is worth the $270. You can create a lot of goodwill by letting a dealer service your car.

Did you look at the $80 bucks per hour labor part?

I paid $86 for an oil change and for the cabin air filter to be replaced. Not the $278 for their 15,000 mile check up.

I had mine done today by "Alternative automotive", ALL they did was road test, replace air and cabin filters for $112. No wipers replaced, no washing fluid topped off; strictly dumbo mechanics that didn't know what they were doing; I will splurge and have Lexus do my 20,000; they are expensive but very thorough!!

Check for online coupons. My Lexus dealership runs $40 oil change specials. About $86 total for oil change + tire rotation, plus free loaner for the day and a free car wash

Default What oil change in 15k??

I have no idea why all people are talking about oil change in 15k miles? Since it uses full synthesis oil and it's good for 10k. And even if you take it to dealership they will just change your air filter only not the oil change. If they said they've changed the oil, then they lied to you.

Anyways, my CT has 15k maint. service on my dashboard now and thinking of doing myself so wish me luck folks. I will be changing filter and add some water. No oil change though.

Cheers!!

I have 400 to before I need this service. To ensure I get optimal resale and clean CARFAX reports, I am having it done. I am getting the RCF and want optimal trade-in value applied to the purchase.

The 15,000 miles really only need oil change, buy your own oil ($42-$70 or so for 7 quartz depending on brand and store you buy) and bring it to the dealer. They usually charge around $34 dollars out of the door. For saving money even more, bring it to the quality local shop, $20 or so.
