It can be overwhelming trying to keep up with a chaotic life and new vehicle, but that’s where we come in! Toyota of Orlando wants to help you keep your new Toyota Tacoma in tiptop shape by sharing a recommended car maintenance schedule with you!
Maintain your 2016 Toyota Tacoma!
So you’ve driven all over, soaking up every minute of being behind the wheel of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma – now you’ve racked up some miles on the odometer. When it comes to maintaining your new Orlando Toyota truck, you should have your car serviced after the first 3,000 miles! When you see the mileage hit 3,000 miles, you should head to our Toyota Service Center in Orlando for an oil change and a tire rotation. This will help make sure your car is running well, and that any metal debris from the new engine has been filtered out with the old oil. Now that your car has had it’s first 3,000-mile check up – it’s time to get back out on the road. But don’t forget, your Toyota truck needs routine car maintenance.
There are a lot of auto services to keep up with, so here is a recommended car maintenance schedule for your Toyota Tacoma in Orlando:
Every 5,000 miles: There are a handful of auto services you should have done to your car every 5,000 miles. If your new Toyota truck is running on conventional oil, you should have your oil changed every 5,000 miles, as well as having your oil filter replaced. While your vehicle is in for an oil change, it should also have all the car fluids checked and topped off. These fluids include coolant, washer fluid, and brake fluid. Other auto services at 5,000 miles include a tire pressure check, tire rotation, brake system inspection, and a car battery check.
Every 10,000 miles: If your your Toyota truck is using synthetic oil, it typically won’t need an oil change until after every 10,000 miles. Synthetic oil is built to last longer and be more resilient. On top of a brake system inspection, your vehicle will be nearing a brake pad replacement. Brake pads should be replaced every 10,000 to 12,000 miles.
Every 2 years: Have you noticed your car pulling to one side? You’re most likely in need of a wheel alignment. This auto service is mostly only needed every 2 years, as long as you keep your tires inflated properly, rotated regularly, and wearing evenly.
Every 3-5 years: Car batteries have a usual lifespan of three to five years. After this elapsed time, bring your car to our Toyota Service Center for a car battery replacement.
