Help your Lexus Perform at its Best


While it is true that a Lexus is a high performance luxury vehicle, that doesn’t mean that it won’t occasionally need repairs. All machines, regardless of how well they are crafted, will eventually need some assistance from their human counterparts. Below, we have listed a few of the most common repair and maintenance issues that we come across when dealing with Lexuses.



  • Brakes: One of the first things you want to check when determining whether or not your Lexus is ready for the summer is the braking system. Extreme cold and harsh de-icing chemicals that are sprayed on the roads can wreak havoc on the brake lines and brake pads of your Lexus if you do not give them the attention that they deserve. If, after looking at your brakes, you discover that you need to have them replaced, contact us at Kudos Import and Performance. Trust us, you want to fix any issues with your brakes before it turns into a dangerous driving situation.
  • Air Conditioner: One of the most common Lexus repairs that we come across during the summer months has to do with the vehicle’s air conditioning system. While a Lexus is no more prone to air conditioner issues than any other vehicle, it is still important to make sure that they system is working properly after not being used for a while. When checking your AC system, run the vehicle for a few minutes and make sure that cold air blowing out of the vents. If no cold air is coming out, you may need to top off the amount of freon in the vehicle or, in some cases, you may need to have your compressor looked at.
