Keep your Toyota running in top condition with regular maintenance which includes but is not limited to Oil Changes, Tire Rotations, Multi-Point Inspections, etc. You should keep detailed records of vehicle maintenance, since under some circumstances they may be required for warranty coverage. These records should include date of service, mileage at time of service and a description of service performed and/or parts installed. For your convenience, a maintenance log is included with your warranty books at time of new car purchase. Damage or failures caused by lack of proper maintenance are not covered under warranty. Toyota recommends having maintenance performed by an authorized Toyota dealership. Toyota dealership technicians are specially trained to maintain and repair Toyota vehicles. They stay current on the latest service information through Toyota technical bulletins, service publications and training courses. Many are also certified through the Toyota Certification Program, which involves a series of rigorous written examinations. You can be confident you’re getting the best possible service for your vehicle when you take it to a Toyota dealership. Here at our Toyota Chula Vista Service Department we are happy to provide these services to your Toyota and keep you informed on what your vehicle needs.
If the answer to any of the questions below is YES, it may be time to replace the battery:
- Is your battery more than three years old?
- Has your battery outlived its warranty period?
- Have any warning lights come on?
- Has your vehicle been jump-started lately?
- Have you had to use a portable charger to recharge your battery lately?
- Do the lights dim when the A/C or heat is on?
- Has your vehicle had alternator or belt problems recently?
- Is there visible corrosion on the battery posts or cables?
If your vehicle is hard to start and/or has dim headlights when the engine is turned off, your battery is getting weak and should be replaced with a new TrueStart™ or True2™ battery. Manufactured to Toyota’s exacting standards for quality and performance, these batteries offer the right combination of cold cranking amps (CCA) and reserve capacity (RC) for reliable performance regardless of climate.
Believe it or not, a higher CCA rating isn’t necessarily a good thing, because it negatively affects RC, or the ability of your battery to hold a charge. TrueStart™ and True2™ batteries have been approved by Toyota engineers for years of trouble-free service–and no one knows your Toyota better than they do.
We provide COMPLIMENTARY BATTERY CHECKS!
