Toyota Car Maintenance Tips

Toyota vehicles are made to last a long time, but maintaining their reliability does require regular maintenance and attention. Though not a comprehensive list, these are some of the most common car maintenance items you can keep up with to ensure your Toyota runs well for years to come.

Oil Changes

Oil changes ensure that your engine stays clean, lubricated, and healthy — all of which are essential to keeping your Toyota running. Without a properly functioning engine, you’ll lose performance and efficiency all while risking expensive engine damage.


Though brakes are one of the more expensive items on this list, the good news is that you only need to have brake work done every once in a while. Plus, if you keep up with regular maintenance, you can often space out the timing between needing the different parts of the braking system replaced.


There are two filters you’ll need to have replaced on a regular basis — the engine filter and the cabin air filter. You can add both of these filter replacements to any other scheduled service, most commonly an oil change.

Windshield Wipers

You’ll want to replace your windshield wipers about once or twice a year depending on how much you use them. Once you notice that your wipers no longer give you a streak-free wipe, it’s time to get new wipers. If your Toyota has rain-sensing wipers, be sure that you’re getting a genuine replacement from a genuine parts department or store to ensure that the wipers continue to work as they should.


Another pricey item on the list, but thankfully tires also only need to be replaced every few years. If you take care of your tires with regular alignments, rotations, and maintaining good air pressure, you can maximize the lifespan of your tires.
