Toyota is heavily regarded as one of the most reliable and reputable brands on the market. It recently won Kelley Blue Book’s 2018 Best Resale Value: Brand Award, further cementing that fact. So there’s good reason to get into a Toyota, but once you’re there you will have some questions that probably won’t come up at the dealership. Stuff like “what sort of oil do Toyota technicians use?” or “How do I book Toyota Service?”
In this post we answer these and other frequently asked questions (FAQ) about Toyota’s Service Department and the Extra Care Protection plan in Canada. Read on.
Are Toyota Service Plans worth it?
The short and long answer to that question is yes. With a Toyota Service Plan, you’ll have a no-hassle service experience and save money in the long run. Your car will be serviced by a Toyota dealer using genuine Toyota parts, and you’ll get a stamp of approval in the record book each time you take the car in for service. This drives the car’s resale value up and increases its longevity.
Where should I service my Toyota?
At a Toyota dealership! Pardon the exclamation point, but we’re quite passionate about this. You’ll have experienced Toyota technicians using genuine OEM Toyota parts working on your car, not to mention an official Toyota dealership stamp in the maintenance book.
Can Toyota service Lexus?
Yes, definitely. Your Toyota dealer will be able to carry out regular routine service on any Lexus with the same level of quality.
How do I book Toyota Service?
You can book a service appointment online through your dealership’s website or through any of our Service Centers by calling the specified number.
What is Toyota Service Advantage?
It’s essentially a Toyota warranty system that guarantees you pay the exact same low-price for every service for the duration of the warranty. Every new Toyota comes with this low-capped price service cost for a set number of years and/or kilometers.
What oil does Toyota Service use?
