Does My Toyota Still Need Maintenance as Often?

Some services, like brake pad replacement, will need to be performed less often. But many other services should still be performed at regular intervals -- or even more often! Take oil changes, for example. Sure, you may not be driving as many miles as you did before, but you should still have synthetic oil changed at least once a year. If most of your trips are shorter in distance, your oil may take even less time to break down.

Other Ways To Keep Your Toyota in Good Shape When You Are Driving Less:

  • Go on Weekly Drives

    The rechargeable battery that helps start your Toyota will slowly drain over time. If you're regularly driving, this isn't a big deal. However, leaving your Toyota sitting means that your battery may drain completely, leaving you unable to start the engine. When you take it out for a weekly drive, make sure to drive it for at least twenty minutes. This will allow the alternator to recharge the battery. In addition, regularly driving can help prevent rust buildup on the brakes.
  • Check the Tire Pressure Before You Drive

    Low tire pressure is dangerous, and your tires tend to lose air over time. Before you take your weekly drive, make sure that your tires have enough pressure.
  • Keep the Gas Tank Full

    If the gas tank is empty, condensation could accumulate, which can cause trouble. Avoid this by making sure you keep the gas tank full.
  • Protect the Exterior

    If you're parking outside, it's best to wax and seal your Toyota to keep the paint job protected.
  • Check for Pests

    Pests may find a shady, protected engine a comfortable place to nest. Before you drive, check to make sure that none have made their nests there!
