Here's my recommendation...
Since obviously at this point you are just pissed at Lexus and apparently you are not happy enough with your IS250 to offset the awful dealership maintenance experience. Why don't you just trade your IS250 in for a BMW 328i so you don't have to worry about paying for service anymore (well, at least the first several years or so).
Disclaimer: if you indeed go with this route, don't come back trying to hunt me down when the free-service period has passed and you figured out your local BMW dealers is a bigger blood sucker than its Lexus counterpart.

Obviously you are attacking me ("you are just pissed" and "don't come back to me") because you are immature and can't handle a negative comment about your precious Lexus.
All of my comments were generic about people in general who have made comments here, but you seem to feel the need to attack me.
If it doesnt apply to you then ignore it. I was not talking to you anyway. I was only trying to help someone who asked for help. If you can't see that then you must need help reading the previous postings.
If we are edited to only nice bubbly comments here, then we might as well be communist with Lexus and their zealots heading up the government.

With every GM car i ever owned, the dealer always recommended their own BS service schedule .... always far more than the GM manual itself stated. Lexus is no different. Anyone following the dealer recommended schedule is just wasting money. My dealer only see's the Lexus for WARRANTY work .... the same as i did with my GM's. Keep your receipts for oil changes etc .... the brand of car, whatever it is, has to honour the warranty if the manuals schedule is followed.

"the brand of car, whatever it is, has to honour the warranty if the manuals schedule is followed. " that does seem simple enough but when you have to take a company with lots of money to court to comply with the written warranty, then it get more compicated.
I do service elsewhere for the items in the book and for $65. I also keep my reciepts. But thank you for your advice.

If you are, according to your So Cal Lexus dealer maintenace cost sheet, how much would they charge for the 20K mile service?
