Your Guide to 2013 Toyota Prius Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Toyota Prius, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Prius could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Prius maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2013 Toyota Prius maintenance schedule!

Toyota knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Prius running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2013 Toyota Prius problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Toyota Prius Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Toyota Prius and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Prius’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2013 Toyota Prius? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Toyota Prius battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Prius stranded. Your Toyota Prius won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Toyota Prius running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 Prius. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Toyota Prius? We can help with that, too!

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Toyota Prius steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Toyota Prius's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Toyota Prius services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Toyota Prius’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Toyota Prius? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.
