I was told by a local auto repair company that Lexus informed them that the oil level on the stick has been changed for the 2009 lexus RX350?

Asked by Nov 05, 2016 at 03:55 PM about the 2009 Lexus RX 350 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last week I had the oil and filter changed on my 2009 RX350 v6 Lexus.
When I checked the oil level on the stick, I found that the oil level showed to
be in the middle of the oil stick. I took our RX back to the shop and the
manager said that Lexus had informed all dealers and shops that if filled to
the "full" mark, the engine would be overfilled. They were told that full is
actually at the middle of the fill mark for all of their and Toyota's V6
engines. He added oil and told me to check this out with Lexus. So I'm
writing Lexus and Toyota owners to see if they have been told the same
thing.
Thanks,
Bill

I would go with what they told you. Even if they are wrong it won't hurt your engine to run it 1/2 quart low.
