Toyota Highlander Maintenance Schedule

When you buy a Toyota Highlander, you’re getting a SUV that balances comfortable luxury with versatility and rugged performance. You also will have a dependable vehicle to get you from place to place around Danvers, Peabody, and Salem.

To ensure that dependability and top-end performance lasts for years to come, routine maintenance is crucial. To help you stay on top of the services that you need to get throughout your vehicle’s lifetime, our team at Ira Toyota of Danvers put together this Toyota Highlander maintenance schedule.

Why Do I Need Routine Maintenance?

Getting the proper maintenance when it is needed keeps your vehicle performing at its highest ability. It also is extremely important to your safety since it’ll allow you to be proactive and mitigate any potential damage to the vital components and systems of the car.

Toyota Highlander Maintenance Schedule

5,000 miles or 6 months

Every time your odometer reaches another 5,000 miles or if it has been six months since your last regular service, it’s time to bring you car in and have the following tasks completed:

  • Check installation of driver’s floor mat
  • Inspect and adjust all fluid levels
  • Inspect wiper blades
  • Rotate tires
  • Visually inspect lining/drums and brake pads/discs

Depending on your driving habits, it’s advised to have additional services and inspections done. If you drive on dirt roads or tow with your Highlander frequently, check your owner’s manual for those additional recommendations.

10,000 miles or 12 months

At this interval, you’ll want to have everything you get done at the 5,000-mile check along with a couple extra services. These services include replacing the cabin air filer and the engine oil and oil filter.

Every 15,000 miles or 18 months

A few more inspects will need to be performed at this time to make sure everything is still in proper working order. It’s advised to get the following parts inspected:

  • Ball joints
  • Brake lines and hoses
  • Drive shaft boots
  • Engine coolant
  • Exhaust pipes and mountings
  • Radiator and condenser
  • Steering gear
  • Steering linkage and boots

If you have a 4WD Toyota Highlander, you’ll want to re-torque the propeller shaft bolt as well as have the rear differential oil and transfer case oil inspected.

30,000 miles ore 36 months

On top of all the services mentioned above, you’ll want to have a few more things inspected, including:
