Toyota capped price servicing - cost, schedule & info

​Toyota's reputation in Australia is rock solid, but the brand is falling behind when it comes to ownership advantages. (image credit: carpress.co.uk)

Toyota offers a capped-price servicing program for all of its current models, which it labels Toyota Service Advantage.

That name may ring a bell - Toyota has done a terrific job in marketing its capped-price servicing plan over the years - and on top of that, Toyotas have a great reputation in Australia when it comes to reliability and ownership.

However, if you search Toyota's site for service prices (if you can find them), you may be confused by the fact there are two different prices quoted - the Toyota Service Advantage price, which is applicable to privately owned cars, and the Maximum Logbook Service price, which applies to government, fleet and rental car customers.

Either way, you'll see that some Toyota models require maintenance more regularly than others. The table below offers a breakdown of which models needs servicing when, but with the majority requiring maintenance every six months or 10,000km (whichever occurs soonest), the brand is lagging behind many competitors.

But as Toyota rolls out more of its new-generation vehicles - such as the new Camry, C-HR, and soon-to-arrive Corolla and new-generation RAV4 - those intervals should gradually increase.

Toyota became one of the last brands to join the fray in offering a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty plan (five years/160,000km for commercial vehicles). Further, the warranty can be extended to seven years if the schedueld service plan has been adhered to. However, the Japanese maker doesn't include any roadside assistance as part of the purchase price; you'll need to pay an additional annual fee for Toyota Roadside Assist.

Short intervals are annoying intervals, and that’s the main detractor for Toyota’s servicing plan. The company has a reputation for great service and decent value, and if it had longer intervals (as we’re seeing roll out), it’s score would be higher. 7/10

See the table below for the average cost per service for each of the models in the Toyota range, plus the service intervals applicable to each of them.
