Johannesburg - Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) is offering discounted servicing for all Toyota vehicles older than 5 years, "irrespective of year, mileage or model", throughout its dealer network.

Toyotsa SA says: "The cost of vehicle ownership is always at the heart of TSAM strategic focus. Irrespective of whether our customers use their vehicles for business or private purposes, TSAM believes that its after-sales service must be both cost-conscious and confidence inspiring.

"Furthermore, this shows that Toyota not only stands behind its products, but is also committed to making the cost of vehicle ownership less onerous in these tough economic times."

How it works:

Toyota Value Service (TVS) offers a guaranteed minimum of 10% discount on replacement parts - including engine coolant, brake fluid, differential oil and gearbox oil - as well as a capped labour rate when taking their cars in for servicing. Toyota SA says: "Among many benefits, this affords customers the opportunity to maintain a full Toyota service history and keep their Toyota genuine, safe and reliable through the exclusive use of Genuine Parts."

All workmanship and parts carry a 12-month warranty while TVS is done in accordance with the prescribed service schedules - including inspection of safety critical items, as well as all routine adjustment and lubrication. 

TVS brings transparency into the cost of vehicle servicing with the help of an online service calculator which is both vehicle and dealer specific. The calculator allows customers to have full information of the items due at the next service, as well the costs. The calculator is available at www.toyota.co.za/valueservice and only requires the vehicle's registration or VIN number.  

Customers can also book Toyota Value Service through the innovative MyToyota mobile application which is downloadable from Google's Play Store or Apple's App Store.
