Maintenance is important for your Toyota, but not just that, maintenance that’s executed on a set and personalized schedule, so that you can get the most out of your vehicle, ensure it stays in top shape, and prevent more serious repairs. Keeping your Toyota on a set maintenance schedule for your specific model helps you maintain good habits and prevents smaller issues from snowballing into larger issues. There’s a lot to look over on a Toyota, but our service team at Upper James Toyota will cover it all through your set maintenance intervals.

Why is a Maintenance Schedule Important?

Vehicles are a major investment in one’s life, and thus should be treated as such. The easiest and most proven way is to commit to and follow a maintenance schedule. Doing this will have all of your Toyota’s necessary service needs laid out in front of you (various ones being done at different intervals), so everything is covered when needed, allowing you to stay ahead of potential problems. Sticking to a schedule will ensure that no issue gets too big, and you can prevent larger repairs that may have occurred (and thus cost a lot more money) if you had put off or avoided regular maintenance checks. Let the experts at Upper James Toyota keep you on schedule with personalized service intervals.
