CENTREVILLE, VA – Toyota has joined the Carfax Service Link program. Service and maintenance information will be reported to Carfax for vehicles serviced by Toyota dealers participating in Carfax Service Link.

The free program creates a virtual directory of dealerships that new owners can bring their car back to for maintenance once the vehicle changes hands.

“Carfax Service Link provides our dealers with another opportunity to increase transparency of the Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV) sales process,” said Marlo Dene, Dealer Standards and Process Manager for Toyota Certified Used Vehicles. “Consumers will now be able to see a more complete service history of the vehicle and will likely place a greater value on such a vehicle. This new tool from Carfax supports the benefit of ‘peace of mind’ that comes with every purchase of a TCUV and should help us sell more vehicles and satisfy more customers in 2008.”

Carfax Service Link is a free enhancement that puts any participating dealership’s name on the Carfax Report of each vehicle they service. Dealership contact information and a Web site link appears alongside each service record on Carfax Reports to help dealers retain these vehicles in their service cycle. More than 5,400 dealerships report their service information to Carfax through the Carfax Service Link program.

Toyota dealers interested in participating can call (888) 485-8063; all other interested dealers can call (800) 274-2277. For more information, visit www.carfaxonline.com.
