I knew a Lexus owner that changed his every 40,000 but he was a mechanic who did it himself. He also drove like a maniac.

Not been impacted by this issue but if it occurs, does it get worse with time until it is fixed or is it typically just a minor annoyance that doesn't have a larger scale impact?

I'd do it now too. Unless you specifically notate for a set future mileage, you're likely to overlook it when it could be handled pretty affordably if you handled it now.

I don't think it's a major issue but I definitely think it's from your Dad skipping the premium. Accidents happen but hopefully he tosses you some coin for the trouble.

Only about $100 for a proper inspection - if there's additional issues, you could tell the dealer to fix or drive the price down accordingly. Totally worth it IMHO

The only thing that would suck more than doing that 3 or 4 times would be the amount of cash you'd have to pay for labor for how long it would take the dealer to do it!
