You like your old Toyota. It may have a few dings and scratches etched across its paintwork. It may not have a Bluetooth stereo. It certainly isn’t great at attracting attention from pedestrians or other motorists. But you like it nonetheless because it’s reliable and yet to leave you stranded in some dimly-lit side street on the way home from a late night jol.
Turns out that Toyota South Africa wants to keep it this way, which is why they’re now offering discounted parts and special labour rates on Toyota models older than five years. According to the press release, “Toyota Value Service (TVS) offers customers a guaranteed minimum of 10% discount on replacement parts – including engine coolant, brake fluid, differential oil and gearbox oil – as well as a capped labour rate when taking their cars in for servicing.”
Toyota Genuine Parts are guaranteed as is a 12-month warranty on all workmanship – a pretty sweet deal if you’re looking to keep your old Japanese workhorse running at its optimum. Go visit www.toyota.co.za/valueservice for more information. – Thomas Falkiner
