Maintenance requirements
Repair and replacement
It is recommended that genuine Toyota parts be used for repair to ensure
performance of each system. If non-Toyota parts are used in replacement or
if a repair shop other than Toyota dealer performs repairs, confirm the war-
ranty coverage.
Flex-fuel vehicles: Flex-fuel vehicles use special parts made exclusively for
flex-fuel vehicles. When servicing or repairing your vehicles, use genuine
Toyota parts made exclusively for your flex-fuel vehicle.
To ensure safe and economical driving, day-to-day care and regular
maintenance are essential. It is the owner’s responsibility to perform
regular checks. Toyota recommends the following maintenance.
General maintenance
Should be performed on a daily basis. This can be done by your-
self or by a Toyota dealer.
Scheduled maintenance
Should be performed at specified intervals according to the
maintenance schedule.
For details about maintenance items and schedules, refer to the
“Scheduled Maintenance Guide” or “Owner’s Manual Supplement”.
Do-it-yourself maintenance
You can perform some maintenance procedures yourself.
Please be aware that do-it-yourself maintenance may affect war-
ranty coverage.
The use of Toyota Repair Manuals is recommended.
For details about warranty coverage, see the separate “Owner’s
Warranty Information Booklet”, “Owner’s Manual Supplement”.
