Servicing Sr180

Recommended Posts

Hi early days with my SR180, very pleased with it, now it's getting used to my driving patterns averaging 38-42 mpg.

Planted and good on the brakes,

Quibbles:

1/ water in rear light cluster ( will hopefully get done under warranty )

2/ clicking clutch pedal ( was told thats the way they are! hmm)

3/ creaky dash (intermittent have checked cabin filter etc)

Servicing choices

Stay with Westland Toyota or go to a toyota independent specialist would like to have diesel filter

changed more often than toyota recommend etc!

Any thoughts welcome.

If you have a Toyota Approved Used warranty and the service is due within the warranty period, you will have to have it serviced by a Toyota dealer. The block exemption legislation which allows you to have a car under warranty serviced outside the dealer network, only applies to the new car warranty period.

Have a look at the Fixed Price Service scheme to get an idea of main dealer servicing costs:- http://www.toyota.co.uk/service-and-maintenance/car-servicing

You are correct - services are intermediate every 10,000 miles and full every 20,000.

Some models require additional work either at the 40,000 or 60,000 mile service, For example the diesel fuel filter needs replacing at 40,000, petrol models need the spark plugs replacing at 60,000, etc.

The Full+ service additionally covers:

replace diesel fuel filter

diesel smoke test

replace spark plugs

check valves

clean airflow meter.

For example I'm not sure how the additional cost of the 'Full+' compares with having the 'Full cost service plus replacement of the diesel fuel filter' - it is something one would have to weigh up when the time comes.

Servicing should follow the sequence of: Intermediate, Full, Intermediate, Full, etc, but whether you have a Full+ at 40,000 rather than a Full, I think would be for you to weigh up given the car's age, mileage and difference in service costs/balanced against what is needed.

Again thanks frosty,

My 180 is reg sept 2009, now done 31700 miles last service was at 28000 miles and was a Full+ service, so all should be fine

will have a intermediate this year, but I think every 40,000 miles for a fuel filter is too long!
