I change my own oil for 2 reasons: Cause its cheaper and I'll take care of it cause no one will treat it like their truck.

oil is easy. i do it myself. Gives me the chance to not spill shit everywhere and clean up things a bit.. these tacomas are SO easy to change the oil in, i always just need two paper towels and thats IT. Last time i did my oil i did it in a white shirt.. not a drop anywhere. really great design.

Definitely do it myself. You can never trust a stealership and a lube place once gave me the wrong stuff in my Lincoln. Besides I love the bonding i get with my Taco!

Little bit off-topic, but Pennzoil has some nice rebates on oil:
http://www.pennzoil.com/documents/04...ine%20form.pdf

$15 off 5 quarts of synthetic
$10 off 5 quarts of truck/minivan, or high-mileage
$5 off 5 quarts of regular

I had the dealership do it while it was still under warranty, but since that's over I do it myself. Easiest vehicle I've ever changed oil in. White t shirt and no jack. Doesn't get any easier.
