Like you I have years of experience with the 2 brands as well as other premium brands, not to mention internet forums. Interior Design Built on a 109. Hi, new to the Lexus world, was wondering if they all use synthetic or conventional oil.
Toyota has explained they use dino because it delivers excellent engine life 500,000+ miles at a more reasonable cost to the owner than synthetic. Oil Change every 6-months or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. Just because the other guy told you what you wanted to hear doesn't make the first guy wrong. Now same as Camry, so I guess for Lexus the sigma of premium wasn't worth it. Are there any after market filters that are larger? Lasts up to 1 year or 25,000 miles before needing to be drained.
The dork was right, the other guy is wrong. They won't change the maintenance schedules on the older cars. The car never pinged, started on first button push and made me happy every day.

The bottom line is that if you use synthetic you'll spend 3 times as much money on motor oil, but will not any see a measurable gain in engine life or fuel economy.

Have an extra quart handy to top off when necessary.
The next service writer I asked at dealership about this, said 10K intervals are fine with approved synthetic oil, so I've continued to use him for scheduling all my service appointments since. If it isn't printed on the oil cap, check your owners manual for the exact type before adding new oil. The system plays through 14 speakers in a 7. In order to deny Warranty claim Lexus would have to prove that the 10K intervals contributed or caused the problem reported. Now it's a non-issue not that Lexus is making it a issue, it is certainly something to discuss on Internet.
Pick the one that best meets your driving distance each year and match it up with the corresponding lube. Great for flat tappet cams and high tension valve springs. Ideal for high mileage cars. Consider one of the oils below instead! I subscribe to some semi-truck trade magazines and learned that a majority of the nations long haul trucking companies also do not use synthetic diesel motor oils because it eat away at their bottom line.
