So I went to the Toyota dealer where I bought my truck today for the first service covered under Toyota Care. I waited and 1.5 hours to find out that the only thing they did was rotate the tires...they said there was no need for an oil change til 10,000 miles because it's synthetic oil....I bought the truck brand new so I have no clue what oil is in there.
This sounded wrong at the time but I just wanted to get out of there since I'd been waiting forever...and my maintenance booklet even says at 5,000 miles their supposed to:
Check installation of driver’s floor mat
Inspect and adjust all fluid levels
Replace engine oil and oil filter
Visually inspect brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs
Does this sound wrong to anyone else?
They should change the oil. The tacoma is one of a few that specifically call for oil change at 5,000 even with their synthetic.
Book says 5000
Website (mytoyota.com) says 10,000 except if Tacoma or a few others.
Coupon book for 5 5000 service says 10,000.
I asked the service writer at my dealership and he said they read it as "change oil and filter at 5,000"
