Keeping your new Toyota in tip-top shape begins with adhering to your Toyota maintenance schedule. This means regular oil and filter changes, inspections, tire rotations, and other small tasks generally performed at 5,000-mile intervals. Below are the most common tasks our certified technicians will perform on your vehicle while you relax at our dealership.

Schedule Toyota Maintenance

30,000 Mile Service List

The timing of your 30,000-mile check-up will depend on whether you stay in Venice Beach or you prefer the longer drive out to Malibu, but will, generally, include these tasks:

  • Engine Oil and Filter Change
  • Tire Rotation and Inspection
  • Drive, Propeller Shaft, and Steering Knuckle inspection and Lubrication
  • Air Intake and Cabin Filter Replacement

We’ll also provide a complimentary car wash, so your Toyota goes home looking shiny and new on the outside as well.

Toyota Corolla Maintenance Schedule

The Toyota Corolla is, hands-down one of the most popular small cars for financially savvy Palms drivers and, as with most Toyota vehicles, keeping it on a regular maintenance schedule will make sure it stays on the road longer. In general, these services should be performed about every 5,000 miles:

  • Replace Engine Oil and Filter
  • Inspect Brakes
  • Inspect and Rotate Tires

Every 15,000 miles, drivers should also add the following jobs:

  • Check Coolant and Cooling System
  • Inspect Brake System, Including Likes, Calipers, Discs, and Drums
  • Inspect Ball Joints
  • Inspect Driveshaft
  • Check Steering System, including Linkage
  • Examine the Exhaust System

And, because the salty sea air around Playa Vista can damage your vehicle’s undercarriage, periodic checks for corrosion should also be made. Having problems with another car? Let us teach you how to reset the maintenance light in your Toyota Camry or Toyota Corolla.
