When to Get A Tune-Up For My Toyota?

There is only one way to keep your vehicle from a breakdown and expensive repair and that is to schedule regular service at your local service center. Some people call it a tune-up; whatever you name it, the service reduces vehicle wear and tear and keeps the vehicle operating efficiently for many years. Most drivers understand the importance of a regular oil change but fail to realize that so many other components work together to keep the vehicle at its best that also need attention. When you take your vehicle in for a tune-up, these necessary services are provided. But, when should a tune-up take place?

Recommended Oil Change Whether you’re the owner of a Prius, a Corolla, or one of the other great Toyota models, it is important to take care of your vehicle and schedule regular maintenance. Look at your owner’s manual to learn the recommended tune-up schedule. This varies from one make an model to the next, but most manufacturers recommend a tuneup at 15,000 miles, 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and again at 90,000 miles.

How does the service technician improve your vehicle's dependability and durability at each of these tune-ups?

15,000-Mile Service

Your first recommended tune-up occurs at 15,000-miles or approximately one-year after purchase. Since the vehicle is still fairly new on the road, this tune-up is fairly simple. It includes a basic inspection of the components under the hood, which looks for any signs of wear and tear or damage. A tire inspection and rotation is provided to keep the vehicle driving safely. This service also includes a battery check, brakes inspection, and an air filter change. Replacing the air filter improves fuel efficiency and vehicle dependability.

  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed

They’ll also inspect the spark plugs and wires for wear and tear and signs of damage. A replacement is made if necessary.

These rubber components can crack and break as they age and will likely need to be replaced at this tune-up.
