Bring your 2003 Toyota Land Cruiser to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2003 Toyota Land Cruiser. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Land Cruiser may need a replacement battery sooner.

It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Land Cruiser stranded. Your Toyota Land Cruiser won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
