Why Auto Maintenance is Important
Your Toyota vehicle is a big investment and a purchase you can rely on for years if you take care of it the right way and invest in appropriate upkeep and maintenance. In other words, you need to have quality maintenance performed on your Toyota vehicle at various times, as outlined by your carmaker.
Regular car maintenance helps ensure the safety, reliability, drivability, comfort, and longevity of your car or truck.
The actual schedule for your car's regular maintenance varies depending on the year, make, and model of your Toyota vehicle, the driving conditions where you live, and your family's driving style.
When to get scheduled maintenance?
Unsure about how often your Toyota automobile needs routine maintenance? The Ourisman Toyota Chantilly service team can suggest a preventative maintenance schedule. When you bring your car or truck into our Chantilly service center, we will take into consideration the number of trips the vehicle makes around Virginia, how far those trips are, the climate you drive in, what type of terrain, and whether or not you typically drive in stop-and-go traffic or take long distance drives.
When our experienced Toyota service advisors have the answers to those type of questions, they may recommend adjusting your scheduled service intervals. Our Toyota service department staff will work as a true partner in helping to increase your Toyota vehicle's reliability, safety, and longevity.
Typically, getting a tune-up means you get several maintenance services performed at once. Because of the advancements in today's Toyota cars, trucks, and SUVs, the traditional tune-up service that you may have gotten on an older Toyota vehicle is no longer relevant for your current Toyota vehicle.
A tune-up used to mean getting the engine looked at by a professional and having Toyota certified technicians check out and visually inspect all of the major systems. Today, software in your Toyota automobile takes care of it by constantly checking thousands of sensor signals, compensating for worn-out spark plugs, clogged filters, etc. Our service department staff at Ourisman Toyota Chantilly works with your on-board Toyota systems to keep everything running safely and efficiency for you.

Regular Toyota maintenance is critically important to your Toyota vehicle holding its value and providing reliable, safe transportation. If you can adhere to a regular maintenance schedule you will ensure the safety, reliability, drivability, comfort, and longevity of your car. An oil change at the correct mileage is a good example of smart regular maintenance.
Preventative maintenance, fixing or changing out parts and additives at Toyota recommended intervals, helps you avoid major damage and ensures that your vehicle delivers a safe, reliable driving experience for your family. For example, replacing your brake pads or the timing belt on your Toyota car when worn "prevents" more expense, by not allowing catastrophic part failures to occur while driving around Northern Virginia.
