Updated Jan 20, 2021 | Same topic: Handy Maintenance Tips

Keep your Fortuner in good condition at all times.

The Toyota Fortuner remains to be one of the top choices among Filipino car buyers who wish to get a large family car. The reason why car buyers choose the Fortuner is due to its reliability and easy-to-maintain characteristics as parts are widely available in the country.

Last year, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) introduced the facelift version of the Fortuner that comes with updated technologies, a stronger engine, and overall better styling. These updates could potentially increase the sales figures of the Fortuner this year.

This is why we have decided to give those customers who are considering a Fortuner an idea as to how much it costs to own one. TMP offers the Fortuner with a starting price at Php 1,633,000 for the base G 4x2 MT variant and goes up to Php 2,404,000 for the top-spec LTD 4x4 AT.

Take note, the following maintenance costs are estimates only. The prices could vary without prior notice and can still depend on the chosen dealership and the condition of the unit. As such, the following estimates are just for ballpark figures.

Maintenance costs for Parts and Labor

All variants of the Toyota Fortuner are equipped with a diesel engine which means that generally, they are cheaper to maintain as compared to a gasoline engine. You should just avoid huge damages from accidents as repairs are more expensive for diesel engines.

The preventive maintenance service (PMS) costs for the first 1,000 kilometers and 5,000 kilometers range from Php 1,900 to Php 2,400. Some Toyota dealers offer free service up to the 5,000-kilometer mileage. However, it is still best that you contact your preferred dealer for better clarifications.

Once the unit reaches the 10,000-kilometer mileage, the PMS comes with a cost that ranges from Php 3,800 to Php 5,500. This price range is also the cost for the Fortuner’s 30,000 kilometers, 50,000 kilometers, and 70,000 kilometers PMS.

The cost for the 15,000 kilometer PMS ranges from Php 3,000 to Php 7,700, while the 20,000 kilometer PMS comes with a price from Php 7,100 to Php 10,400. After reaching 20,000 kilometers, you probably have owned the Fortuner for a year already if used for daily driving. This means that for the first year, you can expect to spend from Php 13,900 to Php 27,900 for maintenance costs.

You can expect that the PMS costs for the following years are more expensive as more major parts such as the engine timing belts will be replaced. As such, the Toyota Fortuner comes with an annual maintenance cost of around Php 19,500 to Php 35,500.

Toyota Fortuner

The Toyota Fortuner is one of the best-selling midsize SUVs in the Philippines. This midsize SUV has been driven on the country’s highways since the early 2000s. It became a household name because of its rugged platform, strong brand support, and tested durability. The second-generation Toyota Fortuner has topped the sales chart consistently, not only in the midsize SUV segment but also for the entire automotive industry in the country. And in 2020, Toyota Motor Philippines launched the new Fortuner facelifted which showcases a more aggressive SUV appeal. It still shares the same Innovative International Multi-purpose Vehicle (IMV) platform as the Hilux and Innova. The new model is offering a wide array of variants to market to various car consumers. These variants include the base G, V, Q, and top-of-the-line LTD variant which comes with a more distinct styling. The sky's the limit for Toyota's entry to the local midsize SUV segment as it remains to be a top choice among Filipino car buyers when considering a reliable, rugged, and family 7-seater vehicle. As for pricing, the G variant with a 4x2 drivetrain and manual transmission starts at Php 1,633,000 and goes up to the new LTD variant with a 4x4 drivetrain and automatic transmission (excluding the White Pearl body paint option).
