Read on to learn more about the Lexus maintenance cost.

Lexus Maintenance Cost Rankings

Some of the best answers we can give you come from the auto industry experts in Hamilton, NJ. Here’s what the respected experts have to say about Lexus maintenance costs:


Kelley Blue Book determines 5-Year Cost to Own Best Brand every year, and has named Lexus the winner in both 2014 and in 2019. This ranking is calculated by considering projected resale values, insurance and state fees, fuel cost estimates, maintenance and repairs, and more. When mentioning Lexus maintenance, they said:

  • “Lexus has an established record of offering vehicles that are desirable both new and used while delivering quality, reliability and low-cost operation across the board.”


In 2017, Consumer Reports conducted a study on the cost of car ownership over time. Lexus was ranked #12 out of 32 brands. Compared to other luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Jaguar, Volvo, Mini, Porsche, and Acura, Lexus consistently outshined them all.

  • The average maintenance cost for a 2007 model year Lexus in its 10th year was estimated at $590.
  • Conversely, BMW, the most expensive brand on the list, was estimated at $1,125 in maintenance costs during its 10th year.


A 2016 study done by YourMechanic, and features by Popular Mechanics, ranked Lexus #28 out of the 30 most expensive brands to maintain, beating out luxury marques including BMW, Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Jaguar, Volvo, Mini, Porsche, Acura, Land Rover, and Buick. The only other models that won over Lexus were Toyota and Scion – both of which are also made by the Toyota Motor Corporation. There’s no coincidence that Toyota, Scion, and Lexus are all sister brands and earned top-ranks in maintenance cost.

  • Lexus models were estimated to have $7,000 of total maintenance over 10 years, compared to BMW at $17,800 total maintenance over 10 years.
