Toyota, Scion Add Free Maintenance Programs

Certified Rockwall Toyota Dealership

New Toyota and Scion vehicles will get two years or 25,000 miles free maintenance starting today, according to Toyota.

The maintenance plans include coverage on all normal factory-recommend services, including oil and filter changes, tire rotations, lubrication of key chassis parts/components and a 19-point inspection. The plans also include 24-hour roadside assistance.

Toyota decided to offer the service after receiving positive responses from car buyers who received free maintenance as an incentive during its summer sales events.

Toyota is the first full-line brand to offer free maintenance across its whole lineup. Toyota and Scion join Volkswagen, Volvo, BMW, Jaguar, Mini, Saab, Land Rover, Lincoln and Cadillac in offering free maintenance

Yes, but isn't it interesting how the oil change intervals jumped from 5,000 miles to 10,000 miles on some of their cars after they offered free maintenance? I would rather pay a nominal amount and have my car last longer.

Interesting that Toyota should do this now...it is about time that this brand woke up to offering free maintenance and roadside assistance. However it should be at least a three year coverage to match the bumper to bumper warranty.
2 years is half assed, but maybe Toyota will totally wake up to this in time.
Peace!<-AladdinSane-

Is that including parts & products or only free labor? "Free" also means these dealer's service departments are aware of Magnusson Moss Act which dictates issues around dealers trying to void an owner's warranty.

Yes, but it is only with the dealer that provided the car- I bought mine through a broker, and I'm not willing to drive 60 minutes to get free services- I'd end up spending most of a day to do this.

I hope Toyota continues this program indefinitely. When they agree to maintain their vehicles for extended periods of time it's says they stand behind their product.

I'm putting together a discussion group to learn what people want to track about their vehicle, and see if there is an opportunity to build a solution to meet those needs.

Not true, C. Steeples. You can take your Scion/Toyota to any dealer for service - not just the dealer from whom the vehicle was purchased.
