The Importance of Scheduled Maintenance

Regular maintenance is essential to obtaining the highest level of performance, safety and reliability from your Toyota. It can also increase your vehicle's resale value. Along with other important information related to vehicle service, you'll find factory-recommended maintenance guidelines and a log in which to document your vehicle's maintenance history.

In addition to scheduled maintenance, your vehicle requires ongoing general maintenance such as fluid checks and visual inspections. These procedures are explained in the "Vehicle Maintenance and Care" section of the Owner's Manual. Be sure to perform these procedures regularly to ensure the most trouble-free operation of your vehicle.

Miles or Months?

Toyota recommends obtaining scheduled service for your vehicle every 5,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first.

- For Example: If you drive 5,000 miles in less than six months, you should obtain maintenance at 5,000 miles - don't wait until 6 months.

With proper maintenance and care, your vehicle will last longer and deliver more dependable, economical performance. Follow Toyota's maintenance recommendations and you'll enjoy maximum reliability and peace of mind from your Toyota for many years to come.
