Servicing History

Last service at arrival into NZ following compliance.

We do not have the service history due to Japanese Privacy Laws, it was not provided or sighted in this case. We have gone over the vehicle extensively and found it very well maintained. We have updated all servicing and fluids as required. The only item we noted and replaced with genuine was a new top radiator hose, this was not leaking but felt brittle and was replaced for peace of mind. All others and cooling system tanks etc are in great condition.
