When purchasing a new car, sometimes we forget about all the work that goes into maintaining it and making sure it runs properly throughout its lifespan. Between your brakes, filters, engine oil, battery, belts, hoses, and fluids, there is plenty that goes into your Toyota vehicle that you don’t even think about, mostly because the majority of car owners don’t know how the heck it all works. Luckily for you, we put together a list of routine maintenance services that you should stay on top of and why they are important to the health of your vehicle.
