A recent Consumer Reports reliability survey showed that Toyota is the second highest-rated brand, maintaining its reputation for running well with few issues. As good as the brand is, like any kind of car, it will certainly need service and eventually need repair. As an owner, perhaps you’re wondering what qualities you should look for in a mechanic and an automotive shop. If so, you’re asking the right questions to get maximum reliability and life out of your vehicle. We’re here to provide reputable services and repairs for your Toyota. Dave’s Ultimate Automotive in Central Austin, Texas, knows your Toyota–whether you drive a traditional gasoline model or a hybrid. What’s more, you can feel confident bringing your auto to us because we’re affiliated with the NAPA, AAA, and the Austin Chamber of Commerce. We’re also ASE certified, and earned the distinctions of a Top Shop and an Angie’s List Super Service provider.
Like any vehicle, your Toyota needs basic care. This includes regular oil and filter changes, tire care, fluid level monitoring, brake inspection, and other similar services. Dave’s Ultimate Automotive can help you with the manufacturer’s recommended service points, including the maintenance Toyota recommends at 30,000-mile intervals. If you chose the hybrid option, your vehicle has similar maintenance (oil, filters, etc.) for the engine, but you will also eventually need hybrid battery replacement. Also, Toyota sells more vehicles than any other manufacturer. As good as they are, these cars will need repairs.
You’re going to need a mechanic experienced in fixing Toyotas at some point. You may, for example, need transmission help. This issue is most commonly reported for the Camry, Corolla, Rav4, and Tundra. Leaking, smelly, or otherwise malfunctioning air conditioning systems can be a problem if you drive a Camry. Is your auto using an excessive amount of oil? Yes, we’ve seen that, too, upon occasion in the Prius, 4Runner, and Rav4. There are also a few less frequently reported mechanical issues for most models as well as paint or clearcoat issues on multiple models that may need to be addressed by a body shop to prevent rust.
