Advantages of Servicing at a Dealership | Toronto, ON

Owning a vehicle can be a big responsibility and ensuring your vehicle is taken care of is a vital part of car ownership. To keep your ride running smoothly, you have to make sure you keep up with regular maintenance. Whether you’re looking to give your Toyota its routine oil change or need to get a repair completed, you will need to decide whether to take your vehicle in to your local garage or a car dealership. Should you bring your car into a local garage or head to Downtown Toyota? Here are some reasons why you should consider servicing your car at our dealership.

There are many types of service that you need to know about to keep your vehicle running smoothly over the long run. That’s why it’s important that you understand your vehicle, what it needs, and what we here at Downtown Toyota can offer you.
If you bring your vehicle in to our service centre, our technicians will ensure that your vehicle is taken care of, issue a proper diagnosis if you’re experiencing issues, and make repairs efficiently and correctly. Whether you need a routine oil change, a tire rotation, or something more specific, we have you covered.  

Certified Technicians & Genuine OEM Parts

Certified Technicians

Well-trained automotive technicians can be found everywhere, but only dealership technicians are trained specifically for your car make and models, and we are no exception. Our Toyota-trained technicians understand your vehicle and how it should be prepared in the most efficient way possible. They have expert-level knowledge of your vehicle, helping them easily identify and treat any issues your vehicle might experiencing. Their ongoing training also helps them use only the best, most up-to-date methods for fixing your vehicle.

Quality Parts

When your car needs to be fixed, a dealership service centre only uses genuine Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. These parts are exactly the same as those already in your vehicle, which means they are measured to fit perfectly and won’t affect your car’s ability to run in the future.
Here at Downtown Toyota, our Toyota Parts Centre is the go-to place for genuine manufacturer parts. These genuine parts are:

  • Manufactured specifically for your model, the model year and model trim level
  • Exact replicas of the parts that your vehicle originally had
  • The best option in regard to fit, overall quality, and performance

Warranties & Customer Amenities


When your vehicle is repaired at a dealership, a warranty will also likely cover the repair and parts. That means that a Toyota dealership can complete any routine maintenance or repairs potentially at no cost — or low cost — to you.
For example, the typical Toyota New Vehicle Warranty includes:

  • Basic Complete Vehicle Warranty: 3 years/60,000 km*
  • Powertrain Warranty: 5 years/100,000 km*
  • Hybrid Component Warranty: 8 years/160,000 km*
Other potential warranties that your car can receive from us after repair include:
  • Replacement Parts Warranty: 24 months/40,000 km*
  • Accessory Warranty: 3 years/60,000 km if you purchase accessories during your new-vehicle purchase; 12 months/20,000 km or the balance of the New Vehicle Basic Warranty if you purchase accessories after your new-vehicle purchase*
  • Replacement Battery Warranty: 24 months


Customer Amenities

If you bring your vehicle into a dealership, you will find many perks. From shuttles to and from the dealership so that your busy life schedule isn’t interrupted to refreshments and a relaxing atmosphere in the waiting area, you will find servicing at a dealership more convenient than going to a local garage.
