The modern car is a mechanical marvel, and very much evolved from the simple machines a generation ago. They generally have now got at least several computers onboard running everything from Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) through to ABS braking systems, traction control and integrated engine management systems.
All of this technology often just runs in the background with the average driver unaware of just how much is going on behind the scenes. We all hear about ABS, EFI, and other accronyms, but few understand exactly what it all does. All of this technology makes for better and safer cars, but also means that specialist servicing with specialist diagnostic tools is a must.
Our technicians are Toyota trained, and we have the very best Toyota Approved Diagnostic equipment and fully equipped, state of the art workshops. With our experience, knowledge and commitment to the Toyota way, we will meet all of your Service & Parts requirements.
Not all parts & servicing is the same, nor does it cost the same.
In most cases you will actually save money by getting us to service your vehicle. Some out there have the misconception that dealership servicing is going to cost an arm and a leg, but the reality is, with our specialist diagnostic tools, we can get to the heart of any problem a whole lot quicker, and fix and test the repair in less time as well.
Because we use genuine Toyota parts we are confident in the quality - these all come with a 2 year, unlimited km warranty. This is peice of mind - it is your car afterall, and the last thing you want is cheap components failing when you least need it, like under hard braking at 100 km to avoid an accident! A few dollars saved on cheaper parts may cost you a lot more in the long run.
Quality wins everytime.
We have a comprehension Accessories and Parts Department at Bowater Toyota. Infact they are recognised as the best in the land, two years running, winning the Parts & Accessories Excellence Cup from Toyota New Zealand for both 2013 and 2014!
