    Default Corolla Maintainance

    Salam guys,

    my corolla GLi 2010 (1.3ltr) is approaching 20,000km (first major service of the car) on the odo meter. I called up toyota central motors (banglore town, shahrae faisal). They said that the 20,000 km service would cost 20,000+Rs.

    When I asked what thy will do in 20,000Rs, they avoided answering my question by saying "sir ye humara service pakage hai jis may Toyota k genuine parts use hoon ge and work will be done by trained mechanics."

    I have got my car servied from them at 5k,10k,15k. My bill would usually come 5,6K

    Q1. Has anyone got their car serviced (20,000km) fom toyota 3s dealers?

    Q2. Why are they charging so much ?

    Q3. What is usually done on the 20k service?

    Q4. can anyone recommend me a workshop (other than the 3s dealers of course) where I can get the work done in lesser amount but good quality work?

    ===
    The car is on petrol (no CNG)

    Will they do the following work on the 20,000km service??

    Car wash
    car polish
    oil, oil filter, air filter change
    Throttle body service
    wheel alignment
    computerized tuning

    what else will they do ??

    I await you help

    1. Grab your car's manual
    2. see whats all in there for 20k service
    3. note down the parts you require.
    4. purchase them from toyota dealerships.
    5. tell them to do this this this .
    6. burden on your pocket will be less than 5 k

    Thats what i did

    Ahmad Bhai .. thanks for inviting me here ..

    At 20,000 km, they told me I needed to replace the plugs ... I checked the condition and told them to just clean them. I replaced them later at 25,000 km service.

    I changed oil + oil filter and air filter. Brakes pads and discs were removed and cleaned. Coolant and washer fluids were checked. Undercarriage nuts and bolts were tightened. Doors and trunks were checked for proper opening and closing. Battery fluid was checked.

    The photos of my 20K service can be seen in this link
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...-3#post2683168

    However, as per the schedule posted above, they did not do any balancing or alignment. I had got the balancing done few days back when I got the TPMS installed.

    If I recall correctly, their bill for labour was Rs 1800 and I got 20% discount when I showed them the SMS that Toyota Islamabad Motors sends to the regular customers ... plus some percent off on parts and lubricants...


    I asked them not to rotate the tires as I had done it myself few days back when I installed the TPMS

    Since you are in Rawalpindi, I think you should better come to Toyota Islamabad Motors near Aabpara.

    report them to toyota motors japan, or even Indus motors, if they do not want to inform you of the details of service - its mandatory that they explain every little detail or they can be blamed for any "dangerous incident" that can happen - just because they did not share any information with you.

    Any ideas what do they do at 5k service? my cars due, altho its crossed 5500 but due to karachi situations i havnt been able to visit
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    I would not waist a dime on Toyota Motors so called 20,000 km service

    For what when you can get all this done for 10 % the price the toyata will charge you.

    paid cash - 20,000/- lol the rupee is surely low. Why not plastic swipe that amount? It was a little too risky carrying cash in Karachi - cant say about Lahore

    Thanks for the pm and invitation, I have gone through your thread but didnt coment, my point of view is this, if i can purchase 140k+ car and want to drive it on petrol in order to keep the warranty then i have to follow the company rules. I my self has 18k on odo and i will go through this 20k servise from a 3s. by doing this i will keep the warranty till 50k as well. in my point of view they are trained professionals, they know the engine and car accessaries very well, they will never ruin it.Best of luck.
