    Thats great news, I used to think you'd pay for the service outside of southern Africa

    I stand corrected.

    You may have to check with Toyota who pays for the service outside SA, as their service plan is underwritten by a different company.

    Yes, I am also not sure who will pay for the service. It is maybe an important bit of info that Tim can provide for us seeing he will probably have to service before back in SA again.

    Getting your vehicle serviced when outside SA is a non-issue.

    We covered over 50,000km and in a LC 76 diesel needed a service of some kind every 5,000km.

    I endeavoured to have my vehicle serviced only at Toyota Dealerships or approved agents as I was keen that only OEM parts be used where possible and Toyota approved oil and lubricants be used. There are plenty of Toyota Dealerships or agents throughout Africa (and probably the Third World) and their standards were more or less equivalent.

    The costs of the services were not covered by Toyota South Africa under their warranty but I did not push that.

    My vehicle was serviced from Maun, Livingstone, Arusha, Fort Portal (Uganda), Nairobi, Addis Ababa and even Port Sudan etc. No problem.
    Landcruiser 76SW.

    And all those dealers stamped the service book? Or can they record the service electronically as is done nowadays in SA?

    Stamped the book, nice souvenir - e.g.

    Guess that equates to 'done that, got the t-shirt'.

    Google is your friend

    'Jabari is a masculine name popularized by African-Americans. It comes from the Swahili language and means “the brave one” (i.e., fearless). Swahili is an East African language spoken primarily in the counties of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. ... With a name like Jabari, parents are wishing bravery upon their sons'

    Quite apt, me thinks.
