Your Toyota warranty is one of the most valuable pieces of your new Toyota purchase, and it’s important to understand the responsibilities you have as a vehicle owner to keep in intact in case something should go wrong. Keeping up with regularly scheduled Toyota maintenance is essential in keeping your warranty valid. We get a lot of questions about new Toyota maintenance and the biggest question many new Toyota drivers have is if they have to service their Toyota at the dealership where they bought the vehicle to keep their warranty intact.

The good news is that Toyota owners have a lot of options when it comes to getting their Toyota serviced and the warranty will remain valid as long as you bring your Toyota to a Toyota-certified dealership and service center. It does not need to be the dealership where you purchased your vehicle. Just be sure to keep records of your Toyota maintenance on file so you have proof of what work has been done and where.  Toyota owners in the Birmingham area looking for a certified Toyota service center can find what they need at Serra Toyota.

Keeping Your Toyota Warranty Intact

Going to a local mechanic or auto body shop will not automatically void your entire Toyota warranty. Depending on the services provided, all, part, or none of your Toyota warranty may be affected. For more specific information, contact your Toyota provider – preferably before the services are rendered so you can make an informed decision before receiving your Toyota maintenance and repair services.
