Toyota Scheduled Maintenance Guide

Maintenance is key to the longevity of your vehicle, and modern automakers continue to get better and better at making durable vehicles that need less and less maintenance. As such, the Toyota maintenance schedule is easy to follow, giving you everything you need to make sure you keep your Toyota vehicle in top shape, whether you drive a new vehicle or pre-owned model.

Toyota Maintenance Schedule Times & Mileage


Toyota recommends that every model has scheduled maintenance every 5,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. Then, there is another maintenance interval at 15,000 miles or 18 months and 30,000 miles or 36 months for more involved maintenance.


Each model may have slightly different maintenance needs. For example, a Toyota Camry gets a tire rotation and check every 5,000 miles or six months. An oil change typically happens at 10,000 miles or 12 months, and the technician will look at the vehicle’s fluid levels and brakes for Cleveland and Parma drivers.

  • Visually inspect brakes, wiper blades, and fluid levels
