Prius first service: 5,000 miles


I took my Prius in to City Toyota in Daly City for its first 5,000 mile service interval today. When I bought the car they gave me a coupon for a free first service. I even got a free bagel and coffee. Total cost to me: $0.

Kudos to City Toyota! It couldn’t have been simpler. I made an appointment, dropped the car of at 9AM, and had the car back to me by 10AM. I don’t think I have ever gotten my car back from a dealership service center that fast before. Usually any service beyond the most basic oil change at an oil-only Jiffy Lube takes most of the day. Now I’m suspicious about why service takes so long at other places like Midas or Daly City Tire Center down the street from me.

City Toyota has a comfortable waiting area and free wi-fi. If future services only take one hour, I will bring my computer with me next time. I just wish I could have gotten a free car wash. My Prius is getting pretty scummy outside.
