Benefits Of Toyota Fixed Price Servicing Explained
Choose Toyota “Intermediate, Full or Full+” service as performed by a manufacturer specialist at a fixed price.
What is covered by Toyota service?
Toyota Fixed Price Servicing helps keep a car safe and comes in three, easy to follow, forms: “Intermediate, Full and Full+”. The Intermediate Service relates to components that require “frequent inspection” such as the fluids, filters and tyres. The mechanic also files a visual safety report and cleans the exterior/interior.
The Full Service builds on the strengths of the Intermediate. Its purpose is to “maximise the performance and longevity” of the vehicle, the manufacture explained. Extras include the inspection of the exhaust system, spark plugs, alarm, hand brake and ball joints.
The Full+ Service incorporates “longer service items” - parts that require less frequent attention, in other words - such as the: airflow meter, transmission fluid, prop shaft and diesel fuel filter.

Benefits of trusting Toyota
Toyota argued that there is a range of reasons to trust servicing to its main dealer network, rather than rely on the alternatives.
“Our technicians have undertaken extensive training in our Academy. They will service your vehicle to the highest standards in full compliance with the terms of your vehicle’s warranty.”
“We only ever fit genuine Toyota parts, which have been designed and tested to our exacting standards.”
“We are happy to arrange courtesy cars or a collection and delivery service to ensure your experience is as convenient as possible.”
“If you prefer to wait with us while we service your vehicle, you can relax in our dealerships. We can offer a 1-hour service with two technicians working on your car. Ideal if you need your vehicle back in a hurry.”
Toyota video emphasises benefits of servicing
The benefits of servicing have been emphasised by a short video that can be seen at the manufacturer's website. It says whereas cars: “Are getting more and more reliable, they still need regular maintenance to ensure they stay safe and keep running for many years”.
The video also summarises the types of servicing the manufacturer performs – specifically Intermediate, Full and Full+ - and shows mechanics at work to provide some insight into the necessary tasks.
