Toyota Highlander Maintenance Schedule


Trips to the beach, grocery store, and other places can easily be done inside a midsize SUV, like the Toyota Highlander.

5,000 & 10,000 Miles

5,000 & 10,000 Miles MaintenanceThe first major maintenance appointment will come after you’ve reached 5,000 miles in your 2021 Toyota Highlander.

During this service, the following work will be completed by one of our service technicians:

  • Inspect wiper blades
  • Rotate tires
  • Inspect/adjust all fluid levels
  • Check installation of driver’s floor mat
  • Visually look over brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs

The next service will come at 10,000 miles, in which the only new task will be to replace the engine oil and oil filter.

30,000 Miles

Maintenance checks will continue every 5,000 miles. When the odometer in your 2021 Highlander gets to about 30,000 miles, it’s time for more extensive service.

This includes inspecting the following car components:

  • Automatic transmission fluid cooler hoses and connections
  • Steering gear
  • Ball joints and dust covers
  • Brake lines and hoses
  • Drive shaft boots

The engine oil cooler hoses and connections will also be inspected if your car is equipped with them. The radiator, condenser, and/or intercooler will be checked out, as well, if applicable.

60,000 Miles & 120,000 Miles

Transmission MaintenanceThe 60,000-mile check will follow the same pattern as the 30,000-mile one. In addition to the aforementioned tasks, these will be completed in your Toyota Highlander:

  • Inspect automatic transmission for signs of leakage
  • Inspect fuel lines and connections, fuel tank band, and fuel tank vapor vent system hoses
  • Inspect fuel tank cap gasket
  • Inspect drive belts

Additionally, the spark plugs will be replaced at this point, along with the engine air filter and—if equipped—the cabin air filter.

If your Highlander is still performing well after 120,000 miles, then congrats! You’ve done an excellent job at keeping up with the vehicle’s necessary maintenance. The only additional work that’s needed at this point is to replace the vacuum pump for brake booster.
