5 Signs It’s Time For A New Toyota - Toyota Parts Blog

ToyotaToyota cars and trucks are known for their reliability and longevity.

However, like all vehicles, Toyotas eventually wear out and need to be replaced.  If you’re experiencing any of the signs below, it means it’s time for a new Toyota.

  • Sign #1 – The Cost Of Repairs Are Too Much: If you’re consistently paying for repairs, it might be time to retire your Toyota.  Here’s the most important sign: If the repair costs start to cost more than the value of the car, it’s probably not worth repairing.
  • Sign #2 – The Car Fails Emissions Test Every Year: If your car won’t pass the emissions test in your community, it may be a sign that it’s time for a new car.  Repairs to pass the emissions test can be expensive.  And if your community has an annual emissions test, you’ll probably want to consider getting a new car.

 

  • Sign #3 – Important Safety Features No Longer Work: If important safety features no longer work, you’ll definitely want to get them repaired.  If the repairs are very expensive, consider getting a new car.
  • Sign #4 – Check Engine Light Never Turns Off: If your car’s check engine light is constantly on, even after it’s been serviced, it’s probably time for a new car.
  • Sign #5 – It’s Too Expensive To Fill It Up: If your paycheck is going straight to the gas pump, it’s probably time to trade in your old car for a more fuel-efficient vehicle.  Toyota has plenty of great fuel-efficient vehicles, including the popular Toyota Prius.

To help extend the life of your Toyota, be sure that you are using Toyota OEM parts. For instance if you own a 4Runner, you’ll want to use OEM 4Runner parts. This will help keep your Toyota in great shape.
