Maintenance Tips For In-Between Service Intervals

Of course, there are plenty of ways to look after your vehicle even in-between scheduled service intervals. The following tips are quick and easy ways to ensure you’re getting the best performance out of your Toyota.


Even if your lifestyle has changed post-pandemic, and you don’t find yourself driving as often, it’s a good idea to drive at least 20 minutes a week. This ensures that your battery stays charged, your tires don’t develop any flat spots from being stationary, and that all of the moving parts remain lubricated.


Try to keep your vehicle parked inside a garage or under cover, to protect the exterior from damage. Regular car washes are also a smart idea, as are waxes and sealants that help protect your Toyota’s paint job.


Not only does driving once a week help keep things lubricated, it can also help ward off rust buildup on your brake rotors.


Not only are tires susceptible to flat spots when the car doesn’t move for a long period of time, but the air pressure can also be impacted. Regularly driving your Toyota helps avoid this fate.

A consistent oil change schedule, including a full change once a year (at minimum) will help keep your Toyota performing at a high level.


By keeping a full tank of gas, you can avoid troublesome condensation build-up inside the tank—plus you’ll never find yourself stranded without fuel.

Animals & pests:

Vehicles can be attractive places for animals to rest or for pests to build their nests. Make sure you check your vehicle regularly to ensure that nothing has tried to take over ownership of your ride.
