A complimentary warranty is a great start for your vehicle’s maintenance. However, there are also extended warranty plans available. This is a Toyota-Approved plan that will help your car retain more value over time. It also affords your Starlet with full-service history – this will be a big benefit if you’re considering re-selling your vehicle. Used cars with a full-service history can be worth significantly more than a used car without those documents. If you’d like to enquire about an extended warranty, please contact us to learn more.

A service plan allows you to keep your car running smoothly, without the unexpected speedbumps of rogue bills. By investing in a service plan you are ensuring that your car is covered with genuine parts, expert mechanics and within warranty parameters. A vehicle service allows you to “check in” with your car. This can help pick up ‘problem areas’ before they become irreparable. With the routine of taking your car for services, you can feel more confident taking on a long road trip or your daily commute.
