Even shoppers only casually familiar with the Toyota brand know that our company makes reliable vehicles. Careful engineering, quality components, and expert assembly all play their part in this, but so do owners and lessees, with the help of the Toyota service technicians at St. Cloud Toyota.
You necessarily don’t need to be a technician to take good care of your vehicle; you can drive carefully, use the right gasoline, pay attention to your vehicle’s condition and performance, and take care of small items like ensuring proper tire pressure.
Doing these things prevents the neglect that brings so many vehicles to our Toyota dealership in Waite Park MN.
We’re aware that not everyone is experienced with vehicle maintenance. We also realize that life gets hectic, and you might forget to bring your vehicle in. That’s why there are a few reminders available to keep you on track.
Your owner’s manual has suggested service intervals, your Toyota dealer will send you reminders, and many new Toyota models even give you alerts when it’s time for oil changes and other essentials.
While maintenance intervals are good reminders, they aren’t carved in stone. Many Toyota models, like the Toyota RAV4 and Toyota Tacoma, pull double-duty as towing vehicles. The Toyota Tundra, for its part, tows even more and offers robust payload capacity besides.
In order to avoid damage, you should not exceed your vehicle’s payload, towing, or axle weight ratings, or its GCWR. You should also come in before your scheduled service interval if you’re using your vehicle for these towing, off-roading, or spending more time than average in stop-and-go traffic; each of these things puts added strain on various parts and systems, necessitating a little extra TLC.
If you have questions about any of these items, our Toyota service specials, or anything else relating to your Toyota vehicle ownership experience, call or stop by St. Cloud Toyota today!
