Maintenance requirements

To ensure safe and economical driving, day-to-day care and regular maintenance are essential. It is the owner’s responsibility to perform regular checks. Toyota recommends the following maintenance:

Repair and replacement
It is recommended that genuine Toyota parts be used for repairs to ensure the performance of each system. If non-Toyota parts are used in replacement or if a repair shop other than a Toyota dealer performs repairs, confirm the warranty coverage.

  • Toyota technicians are well-trained specialists and are kept up to date with the latest service information. They are well-informed about the operations of all systems on your vehicle.
  • Keep a copy of the repair order. It proves that the maintenance that has been performed is under warranty coverage. If any problem should arise while your vehicle is under warranty, your Toyota dealer will promptly take care of it.


  • If your vehicle is not properly maintained
    Improper maintenance could result in serious damage to the vehicle and possible death or serious injury.
  • Handling of the battery
    • Engine exhaust, some of its constituents, and a wide variety of automobile components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer birth defects and other reproductive harm. Work in a well-ventilated area.
    • Oils, fuels and fluids contained in vehicles as well as waste produced by component wear contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Avoid exposure and wash any affected area immediately.
