Toyota Service Tips For Edmonton Toyota Owners

In this section of our blog, Doug Dixon, (Shop Foreman at Gateway Toyota in Edmonton), gives service tips for northern Alberta Toyota owners. While there is a lot of information on the web regarding Toyota service, most applies to owners living in the south.

We often hear questions such as “how often should I change the coolant in my Toyota” or “do I need to have the oil changed more often because I live in the north where the driving conditions are extreme?” Doug will answer the most frequently asked questions.

We hope you find the videos and comments helpful. If you have a specific question not covered, please post a comment on any page and we will get in touch with you.
