Maintenance Myth

Is "Maintenance-Free" For Real?

There is no such thing as maintenance-free when it comes to your car. It is a myth that has been bandied about lately as a ruse. It simply doesn't make sense. A maintenance-free car means that you don't have to have your car serviced for oil changes or fluid exchanges or any other maintenance service. On the other hand, several vehicles are virtually maintenance-free because the maintenance cost and the amount of maintenance is minimal.

The Need For Scheduled Maintenance On Your Vehicle 

Just like any other machine, your car needs to be tended to for it to work properly. That's where maintenance comes in. Imagine if you kept going, and going without rest, water, or food? You'd fail. Your car is just like that. It needs to be properly maintained to have a "life". Checking your owner's manual will give you an idea of when each maintenance service should be performed for the best operation.

Is My Car Battery Maintenance-Free?

Maintenance-free can also refer to the car's battery. If your car battery does not require water to be added to it periodically it is maintenance-free. The Toyota TrueStart battery is thought to be a battery that will last for years and years of service. If your car battery requires water, it is advised that you use distilled water to ensure longer battery life. Your Toyota-certified technician will let you know exactly what is needed to extend your battery life as well as all the other systems in your vehicle.

Maintenance-free also means an extended period between maintenance and service appointments. Some vehicles do not need an oil change as frequently as vehicles of old. When it comes to Toyota vehicles, the Toyota Corolla and Toyota Avalon are listed as being the first and second least expensive vehicles to maintain and repair. While they are not maintenance-free, they are the ones that come closest. Another Toyota vehicle that made the top 10, according to is the Toyota Tacoma.
