Toyota RAV4 Owners Manual: Maintenance requirements

General maintenance should be performed on a daily basis. This can be done by yourself or by a toyota dealer.

Scheduled maintenance

Scheduled maintenance should be performed at specified intervals according to the maintenance schedule.

For details about maintenance items and schedules, refer to the “scheduled maintenance guide” or “owner’s manual supplement”.

Do-it-yourself maintenance

You can perform some maintenance procedures by yourself.

Please be aware that do-it-yourself maintenance may affect warranty coverage.

The use of toyota repair manuals is recommended.

For details about warranty coverage, see the separate “owner’s warranty information booklet” or “owner’s manual supplement”.
