Toyota gets on the app wagon

Toyota Drive app will probably keep you on your phone more but this time we approve

We already spend a large chunk of time with our faces buried in our smartphones and in between liking our crush’s photos on Instagram or retweeting that soul-stirring post from Thought Catalogue, you can now schedule a service appointment or request for roadside assistance via UMW Toyota Motor’s new app for smartphones that does all that and more.

Apart from the aforementioned scheduling service appointments and getting breakdown assistance, the Toyota Drive app allows customers to view service packages, locate the nearest Toyota outlet and stay-up to date with the latest deals.

The main features which users can access in the Toyota Drive mobile application are:

1. Service Appointments – Owners can book service appointments for their Toyota vehicle at a preferred Toyota service centre anytime at their convenience.

2. 24Seven Road Assist – Owners can connect to 24SevenRoad Assistsupport service with just a click when they require any assistance (breakdown or accident).

3. Service Packages – Information on various service packages are available for all models.

4. Outlet Locator – Customers can search for the nearest authorised Toyota outlets (sales, service and Body & Paint) in Malaysia.

5. Pre-owned vehicles for sale – For those who are looking for quality pre-owned Toyota vehicles, they can check out the prices and available models at the six TopMark locations in Peninsular Malaysia.

Perhaps one of the more useful features is the access to your Toyota’s service history which would come in handy if you’re ever thinking of selling it off.

The app is available for Android (Google Play Store) and Apple’s iOS (App Store) for free. So if you own a Toyota purchased from UMW Toyota Motor, this app’s going to be more useful for you than Tinder.
