Rotation: Every 5,000 miles
You'll want to have the tires on your Orlando Toyota Tacoma rotated every 5,000 miles, regardless of what type of tires you have on it! This Toyota service will help your tires wear evenly; this ensures a longer life and more money in your pocket. During your tire rotation, our techs will also check the PSI for proper inflation to keep your fuel efficiency and traction up.
Alignment: Every 2 years
You'll need your Orlando Toyota Tacoma's tires aligned every two years or so; however, if you get into an accident or get a new set of tires in the meantime, you might need this Toyota service sooner.
Oil and Fluids:
Oil changes: Every 5,000 miles for conventional motor oil and every 10,000 miles for synthetic motor oil
You should schedule routine oil changes for your Toyota Tacoma in Orlando so the engine stays cool and lubricated, especially if you find yourself taking things off the pavement frequently or towing heavy loads! Without clean oil, you can run up some pretty costly repairs.
Fluid inspection: Every 5,000 miles

Toyota service for your brakes is important for this truck!
Brake Pad replacement: Every 10,000-12,000 miles
You'll need your brake pads replaced every 10,000 - 12,000 miles, but if you tow heavy loads a lot or drive in stop and go traffic often you might need them replaced sooner.
