Toyota Services You Should Have the Dealer Perform

February 24th, 2017 by

Throughout the generations of vehicles since Toyota has been introduced to North America, vehicle maintenance has changed almost as much as the vehicles themselves. Where once you could change your fluids on your own, service your battery or change your alternator, it can be a challenge just to find part locations under the hood! And there are some Toyota services it’s just better to have your dealership perform. Here are just a few:

Toyota Services the Dealer Should Perform

Timing Belt Replacement

Tying your engine’s top end and bottom end parts together is either a timing belt or timing chain. A timing belt needs to be replaced every 60,000 to 100,000 miles, otherwise you can expect your engine to stop running and your wallet to get a lot lighter.

If your Toyota has a timing belt, it’s a service we should perform for you. It’s best not to mess with such an intricate procedure on your own, nor should you trust it to an inexperienced repair shop. You could end up with a poor-running engine and a hefty repair bill to fix it correctly.

Hybrid Service

Whether it’s a hybrid battery service or just basic fluid maintenance, it’s not safe to tamper with a hybrid if you don’t have the right equipment. The high-voltage systems have the power to severely hurt you if you mess up. Or, you could cause irreversible damage to your Toyota hybrid.

Visit a Toyota dealer for all your hybrid services to keep it operating at its best.

Tire Services

While you might think anyone can work on your tires, either rotating them or patching a leak, your Toyota dealer is the best place for tire services. Other shops might be able to get it fixed, but do they have the technology to reset your TPMS sensors accurately? Can they assure you they won’t damage a sensor during service?
