Often, the thought of servicing and maintaining your Toyota can seem like the introduction to a list of expensive repairs.

Simple Servicing Tips
However, if you want to keep your Toyota running just as you bought it, bringing it in for a service is actually an important thing to do, because if you catch a small problem early, it will save you time and money in the long-run.

Simple vehicle maintenance can be the cornerstone of keeping your car at its optimum performance, such as checking the air conditioning, tyres and getting a visual health check.

At Toyota Inchcape, our one objective is to ensure that you receive an excellent experience from both our Service and Parts departments, whether your Toyota needs a brief look over or a full service and MOT.

Why do I need to get my Toyota serviced?

Although it isn’t a legal requirement, we would advise that you get your Toyota regularly serviced, to keep it running as it did when you first took it home.

If your car is under warranty, you will need to make sure that your car is fully serviced, and by a qualified technician; taking your Toyota to a non-specific garage for a service, could invalidate your warranty or affect your car’s service history.

As cars become more and more technologically advanced, they need their own unique service attention, at Inchcape our Toyota technicians are trained to the manufacturer’s standards.

What we include in our servicing

We know that finding the right service at the right price for you, can be difficult, at Inchcape Toyota we aim to make this as straightforward as possible for you with our Fixed Price Servicing.

Once you bring your Toyota into our garage, we guarantee that we will leave no stone unturned and we will make a list of what repairs need doing, but will not fix anything without your say so.

Our method is to use a comprehensive traffic light system report on your Toyota, which will detail what is fine, green; what needs fixed sooner rather than later, amber; and what we recommend to get fixed right away, red.

Sometimes cars are privy to recall problems, if we come across any recall issues during your cars service, we will sort these quickly, completely free of charge.

If you’d like to know more about your service, you can meet with one of our Toyota technicians, who will be able to talk you through all of the specifications that are available for your model.

A guarantee you get from us at Inchcape Toyota that you won’t get from a generic garage, is that we will replace any tyres, batteries, exhausts etc. with Toyota Approved parts.

If you like, you can also book your car in for its MOT as part of your next service maintenance check-up.

What if I have a Hybrid?

Toyota are the world leaders in hybrid vehicles and with over 5 million Toyota hybrids recorded on the road last year, it’s important that you get it looked after by someone who knows what they’re doing.

We recommend that you get your Toyota hybrid checked out annually with us, to make sure you are safeguarding its lifespan.

At the heart of your Toyota, is Hybrid Synergy Drive, which intelligently links the petrol power and the electric motor to give a smooth driving experience. Making sure it is up to scratch is of optimum importance.

At Inchcape Toyota, we run a full test of the whole Hybrid Synergy Drive system, and our experts will be on hand to keep you informed of the condition of your Toyota hybrid.

The Hybrid Health Check is now included with any Hybrid Service, but if you prefer you can opt for a Toyota Hybrid Heath Check with us separately for just £39.

With each Hybrid Health Check you will also receive up to 1 year or 10,000 miles extension (whichever comes first) on your hybrid battery cover.

I can’t leave my Toyota with you for a couple of days, can I still get a service?

You absolutely can, at Inchcape Toyota we can offer our Toyota Express Service, which means that your car will be in and out of the garage again within 60 minutes.

This Express Service will have two of our expert technicians working on your Toyota at once, who will both be using specialist equipment, designed to help them complete the necessary work as quickly as possible.
