Spring Maintenance Checklist

Winter is hard on your Toyota and all of its 12,000 parts. It’s one of the reasons why Toyota recommends getting your vehicle serviced every 8,000 km or 6 months, whichever comes first.
We spoke to our service advisors & technicians and here is what they had to say about Ottawa winter and what it does to vehicles. Also listed are the checks our technicians perform during a Spring Maintenance Service to minimize winter damage and make sure you’re driving with confidence this spring and summer.


All that salt also gets into and corrodes metal parts, linkages, connectors - basically, anything made of metal gets a beating from salt over the winter. So we go over your vehicle in great detail and make sure to take off your tires and visually inspect your brake pads, calipers, rotors, brake lines, and hoses.


It’s a system that no one even realizes has parts: your vehicle’s ventilation and airflow system. It’s an integral part of your vehicle’s performance; but, it’s also a system we use all the time in the cabin. Pretty much the first thing we do once the car is started is turn on the heater, and then we leave it on the whole time we’re driving. That adds up to a lot of air passing through all of our vehicle’s cabin air filters. So when you come in, we check all those filters and let you know if they need replacing. Another thing we check is your air conditioner. You haven’t used it in months, so it’s important to see if it’s ready for that first heatwave.


Ottawa winters can be unkind to your vehicle. The extreme temperature changes, salt, and other factors add up to a full-out assault on any rubber parts on your Toyota, including tires, wiper blades, door seals, washers, and hoses. That’s why we check and rotate your tires as well as inspect your wipers, the linkage, and washers. Plus, any hoses related to your brakes and other fluids.


Those extreme temperatures, combined with all that moisture and salt, are also very tough on any electronics in your vehicle. Which is to say, almost every part of your vehicle. And as we all know, electronics work perfectly... until they don’t. It’s way better to find out about a faulty connection in the service bay than on a remote highway. During a service, our technicians look over a range of systems in your car to check for corrosion or improper connections. This includes checking all of your lights and indicators and doing a full diagnostic on your vehicle’s systems.


We also check all of the fluids that help make your Toyota run smoothly and replace the ones that need it. Engine oil, brake fluid, engine or inverter coolant, power steering fluid, and washer fluid. In fact, changing your oil regularly may be the single best way to extend your Toyota engine’s life. As engine oil breaks down, it starts to chemically degrade. The longer you leave it, the worse it gets, and, if left too long, old oil can actually start to damage your engine. So even if you stop reading here, you already have all the reasons you need to Make A Date Every 8,000 km (or 6 months, whichever comes first).


At the service drive-thru, we have undertaken new protocols to ensure the safety of our clients and employees. As you approach the service drive-thru, the doors will open. Your first contact will be with our greeter, Tony featured in the video, who will be wearing gloves (changed after every car) and a mask. Once you park you will be asked to put your keys in a bag where they will stay for the duration of your visit. Once you exit the vehicle Tony will sanitize the common areas inside your vehicle.

Once these steps are complete, the Service Advisor will complete a walk-through around your vehicle. As your car goes into the shop, you can choose to wait in the waiting area created within the dealership for service customers only. Since the dealership is considered an indoor public place, we request that all customers wear masks while in the dealership and service area. When the car leaves the shop, our technicians will ensure that the common areas inside your vehicle are sanitized again. Your keys will be ready for pick-up from the same bag.
