Not checking that your car’s in good working order could lead to bigger problems. But you don’t want to spend a small fortune on your Toyota car service or be ripped off if there are any repair costs. 

To give you an idea, car services for a Toyota costs $25 to $230, and can raise to $1,000. Your Toyota servicing expert might charge more or less, depending on the mechanical problem, where the car is, and any specialist parts or equipment that might be needed.  

This guide breaks down everything you need to know about Toyota car service prices in the US. By the end, you’ll have a clearer idea of how much you can expect to pay and so you can easily find the right mechanic for your budget.

Toyota car service price list by model

The price of Toyota car servicing depends largely on two things: the model and what needs servicing. Naturally, a Toyota Yaris car service costs differently from a Toyota Corolla. Based on our Airtasker data, here’s what you can expect to pay for Toyota repair costs and services based on the model.

When to book your Toyota service

The age, condition, and everyday usage of your Toyota will help you decide when to take your car in. When considering how often your Toyota should be serviced, keep three things in mind:

1. Are there any noticeable problems with the car? 

For example, handling issues or odd noises coming from under the bonnet. If weird things start happening, get the help of a mechanic as soon as possible. 

2. Refer to the Toyota service schedule and handbook 

Otherwise known as the owner’s manual, this is where you’ll find manufacturer guidance on a range of things, including recommendations around when your car should be serviced. For example, it might be every few months or when your car’s clocked a certain number of miles. 

3. How do you use your car?

Finally, if your car is used a lot or has to deal with harsh conditions, it will need more regular servicing compared to a car that’s barely used or fresh from the showroom.

What happens during a standard car service?

Your car is probably one of the most valuable things you own. Knowing what happens to it once you hand the mechanic your keys will help put your mind at ease and help you know exactly what you’re paying for.

In the owner’s manual, you should find a complete explanation of what needs to be serviced on your specific Toyota model. But to give you a quick overview, here are some common tasks and checks a mechanic will carry out on most vehicles during a minor or standard car service:

  • Check and top up oil and (if needed) replace the oil filter

  • Test brakes and check brake fluid

  • Test the car’s transmission

  • Review belts around your engine (like the drive and serpentine belts)

  • Check the hoses connected to the radiator, heater, power steering, etc.

  • Make sure the air conditioner runs properly

  • Inspect steering and suspension

  • Check all lights and bulbs work; replace them if they don’t

  • Review the car’s cooling system

  • Make sure windscreen wipers and washers work

  • Check spark plugs to make sure there’s no sign of an oil leak

  • Test the battery

  • Review the air and fuel filters, and check the exhaust 

  • Check the tires (air and tread depth)

What’s included during each scheduled Toyota service?

There are certain milestones in the life of your car which, when reached, means it’s a good idea to book a service.

Whether you drive a car, truck or SUV, a vehicle service is recommended every 6 months or 5,000 miles - whichever comes first.

In terms of what happens during a scheduled Toyota service, you’ll always get basic maintenance on tires, an oil change, plus brakes, wipers, and fluid levels checked. Beyond that, it depends on the model and age of the car, as well as the driving conditions it’s been subjected to.

Common issues that come up during a Toyota car service

With so many moving parts, it's not surprising some bits break, fault, or simply wear out. 

Toyotas may be known to have top-tier reliability, but some problems can still seep through the cracks, with some of them manifesting in popular models as of late. From production faults to wear and tear, any car – even as reliable as a Toyota – is not immune to hiccups and it pays to be aware of what needs checking and when.

Based on recent jobs posted on the Airtasker platform, some of the most common Toyota issues include electrical faults, transmission problems, and alternator issues.

Common Toyota repairs and their cost

A common car repair - not just limited to Toyota maintenance - is windscreen repair. Fixing small front and rear windscreen chips could cost as little as $50. For more serious damage (think, completely smashed) it could cost as much as $500 to replace your windscreen.

Other common repairs specific to Toyota car owners include brake pad replacement ($100-$300), getting your oil and filter changed ($40-$120), bumper replacement or repair ($500-$1500), and tire repair or maintenance ($4-$60 per tire). 

You can request help with any of these tasks by hiring an expert. Some of these tasks might be better suited to other Airtaskers, like a tire repair expert. Or if you’ve got a couple of different things on your list, you might just hire a general mechanic to take care of it all in one go.

What are the main factors affecting the cost of my Toyota car service?

As you can see from our price guide above, the biggest variation in cost is based on the make and model of your vehicle, along with the complexity of the task. But the overall price of a Toyota car service also needs to include your mechanic’s labor and how long the job will take. And that will depend on:

  • How old your car is

  • Whether it’s diesel or petrol 

  • Extra parts needed (and if the mechanic needs to find these)

  • Any extras (like a repair or scheduled replacement)

  • Your location/suburb

  • Whether you book a mobile mechanic or take your car into a workshop

  • How urgently you need the job done

  • Whether work is being completed on a weekday or weekend

Saving on your Toyota car service costs

Doing basic car maintenance by yourself is a great way to keep your Toyota service costs down. Tasks like checking oil levels (and topping up if low), replacing faulty light bulbs, and checking your tire pressure and tread are all things you can do yourself. Keeping on top of these things regularly will keep your car in great working order, for longer. 

Of course, if you don’t like getting under the hood of your car for a regular check, you can always enlist the help of a local Airtasker to come out in between full services. For a basic car check, you might be able to find someone to do the job for under $50.

Another way to save on your Toyota’s servicing costs is to pay close attention to your car while driving. How? Well, the more attention you pay to your car, the more likely you are to spot anything that’s a little, well, odd. Like fluid puddles appearing under your car. Or odd noises when braking or changing gear. 

The sooner you notice these little issues, the quicker you can get them fixed, and the less likely they are to become larger, costlier problems.

FAQs about Toyota servicing

A logbook service is when your car is checked according to the maker’s guidelines. So, Toyota will have specific things mechanics should look at when servicing your car. Getting a logbook (or full service) on your car is a good idea because it’s a thorough check for your specific model. Note that a full service price will differ from a Toyota general service cost. 

If you’re buying a brand new Toyota fresh off the assembly line, you’re entitled to a Complimentary Vehicle Inspection through your dealership. In the US, any qualified mechanic can service your car - so you don’t have to spend as much as Toyota's service pricing and book an appointment with themto maintain a manufacturer’s warranty. 

That said, if your car is under an extended warranty period, it's worth checking the fine print, as you may need to see a Toyota dealership and refer to their service center prices. 

This depends on the type of service your car is booked in for. A standard, interim service usually takes one to two hours. A full, logbook service can take three to four hours depending on the size and model of your car.
