Can a Toyota garage service a Lotus ?


Recommended Posts

Hi 

new forum but I have a weekend car lotus Evora which runs of a Toyota 3.5 engine and gearbox is derived from Toyota.

both engine and gearbox are tweaked by lotus maybe so much that it’s almost not a Toyota origins anymore?

so my question would a Toyota garage be able to not only complete general service but also things like clutch replacement etc ?

Probably would, but dependent on whether the Toyota dealer is interested in handling a car from a different manufacturer.

I wouldn't let them anywhere near it imho, There are plenty of specialists that know these cars inside and out and know the cars quirks - try the lotus owners club for recommendations

Yes I have a number of lotus specialist and I get mine done at lotus dealership but I often wonder if Toyota could deal with it as I have one not too far from me. 
I wanted to ask question in case there’s any Toyota mechanics on this forum who might claim they can carry out service or repairs ?

Well any "mechanic" can perform a service, if they have the skills, knowledge or specialist tools is another matter
