Toyota Hilux service: all you need to know

Toyota Hilux servicing

If there’s one model in the Toyota range that epitomises our philosophy of delivering dependable and reliable vehicles, it’s the Toyota Hilux. Our pick-up truck has been a staple of the line-up since 1968, and over eight generations have established itself as a machine that won’t let you down. In order to keep it that way, your local centre will be able to carry out a Toyota Hilux service to ensure it remains a reliable machine.

The Toyota Professional network of commercial vehicle centres is geared towards keeping your work vehicle on the road, and that means we will endeavour to get your Hilux booked for service within seven days of your call. We’re so confident that we’ll be able to accommodate you that we’ll even deduct 50% from the labour costs, should we fail to meet this target.

Toyota Hilux service

Toyota Professional has your business interests in mind, so we will endeavour to get your vehicle back to you as quickly as possible, but still, carry out a high standard of service on your Hilux.

What are my Toyota Hilux service intervals?

All Toyota Hilux models work to a service schedule of 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever milestone is met first. When the time comes to arrange a service, you can either contact your nearest Toyota Professional business centre, or simply put your truck’s registration and mileage in the Toyota online service portal, and we’ll be able to provide you with a quote for servicing immediately.

What happens in a Toyota Hilux service?

Whether you’re booked in for an Intermediate or Full service, your Toyota Hilux will be given a thorough inspection to ensure everything is in correct working order. Every service sees your truck subject to an oil and filter change, and it will be placed on a hydraulic lift to ensure that all of the mechanical components underneath are in good condition. Full service will see more fluid changes and filter replacements, while major components such as the exhaust, suspension and transmission will be given extra attention when you hit major milestones during the truck’s life.

Since a Hilux will likely have seen some off-road action, extra attention will be paid to the differentials and their locking mechanisms, as well as low-range transfer cases, just to make sure everything is working correctly.

Toyota Warranty

While the Hilux is considered a work vehicle, Toyota is so confident in its ability to perform that it still qualifies for our Toyota Warranty. If your Hilux is less than 10 years of age and has covered fewer than 100,000 miles, then every time you get it serviced at a Toyota Professional centre, it will automatically qualify for 12 months or 10,000 miles of warranty cover. It doesn’t matter if your Hilux has been serviced outside of our network or if you’ve missed a service deadline, as long as it meets the qualifying criteria above, the warranty applies.

Service costs

No matter which Toyota Professional centre you take your Hilux to, you’ll pay the same amount for your service. Actual prices will vary according to your truck’s service schedule, but Toyota’s nationwide pricing policy means you won’t pay more at one Professional centre as you will at another.

To help with servicing costs, Toyota offers a range of service plans that are tailored to suit your Hilux. Simply enter your truck’s registration and mileage at our online service portal, and we can provide a tailor-made service plan. These cover 24 or 36 months, and you can add extras such as MoT cover and recovery plans, and allow you to budget monthly for servicing, rather than having to stump up for a big bill every 12 months when your truck’s service is due.

Toyota Hilux repairs

Our Toyota Professional centres are set up to help you with scheduled maintenance and any repairs that might be needed. Whether it’s bodywork, paint, mechanical components or anything else, our centres have the expert knowledge to help get your truck turned around and back on the road as soon as possible. Toyota’s aim is to fix and repair any vehicle within 24 hours, so you can get back on the road as soon as possible, while any replacement parts that are used for your truck’s repairs will be covered by a 12-month warranty against defects.

  1. Hi
    I am desperately trying to find out details of my23 rav4 PHEV I want to order a Dynamic Premium , though a lease company.
    An official release date would help please ?

    1. Hi Mike,

      Thanks for your interest in the RAV4 PHEV. Dynamic Premium is no longer available to order. A replacement grade will be announced in due course, but for now, only Design and Dynamic grades are available. Saying that, you can order the Dynamic grade with JBL and Panoramic Roof.

      Thanks

  2. hi just wanted to know if i service my toyota hilux at an independent garage with genuine oils and parts is my warranty void?

    1. Hi there,
      Thank you for your question.
      Please provide the vehicle registration so we can better assist you with this question.
      Thanks.

      1. Hi,
        Thank you for providing that.
        Our system shows that your Manufacturers Warranty is active until 2nd February 2025.
        This means until then, you can have your Hilux serviced wherever you choose.
        After the expiry of the manufacturer warranty, if you choose to have your Hilux serviced at an official Toyota centre, then you will benefit from an additional 12 months (or 10,000 miles) of warranty, until your car is either ten years old or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first).

        We hope this helps.
        Thanks.

      1. Hi, we’re waiting for 6 Toyota Hilux’s to be delivered to our fleet. These will have to be managed accurately so is it possible for you to confirm if a Service indication shows on the dash to alert the driver that service is due or does the driver have to be diligent and report the mileage?

    1. Hi Gwen, thanks for your question.

      We would recommend sticking to your vehicle’s service schedule. Please contact your Toyota Centre for more information on this.

      Thanks.

  5. I have a 71 plate hilux, serviced 8/22 after 9200 miles. Have done approximately 7500 since last service and have an oil maintenance required soon light, is it right to have this when it’s another 2 months/2500 miles till the next service?

    1. Hi Trevor, thanks for your question.

      We would recommend contacting your Toyota Centre regarding this.

      Thanks.

  6. I am collecting my new Hilux 2.4D (2023 Model Year UK dealer) and believe Toyota Australia have a custom DPF setting ability for their Hilux’s. It allows a manual DPF to be initiated from level 2 instead of level 7 DPF indicator level. Is this custom function also available on UK Hilux. The details are in the 2020 Toyota Australia DPF information booklet on page 13.
    Thanks

  7. I have a 72 plate hilux double cab due its first service . It was registered at the end of December 2022 -FV72OBP .
    If i get it serviced privately using Toyota parts etc in January will it still be under warrantee ?
    I am struggling to get it booked in for December and i would prefer to use a private service engineer for the first service .

  8. hi there does my 2021 hilux active extra cab have a trac the reg number is nd21vck the 2020 book says trc is fitted but my 2019 book says active traction control is there a difference i think trc just keeps you going straight were a trac will help you get out of a stuck position any help thanks

    1. Hi Stephen, thanks for getting in contact.

      TRC and Traction Control are the same. This helps prevent wheel slippage when the vehicle is starting or accelerating on wet or slippery roads. This vehicle should be equipped with this. This vehicle should also be equipped with Trailer Sway Control (TSC) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC).

      Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any more questions.

      Thanks.
