I wouldn't wait to start using that Mobil 1, do it now and it will make a world of difference.

Anyone else in the U.S....

Replace the battery. Mine started to go on the fritz right around your mileage. Lexus replaced it under warranty. You are close to your 50K anyway, why not do it now?

I would not worry immediately about this. However, in the next 3,000 miles, change it back to synthetic. Maybe about five years ago, it was still worth it to use regular oil when one first got their...

They never pushed me on 60,000. I did have the spark plugs changed then on my own account. However, they can run to about 100,000.
