I use Mobil 1 advance synthetic and Mobil oil filter. And I stick with 5k/ 5 months. Turn off your engine wipe deep stick let it sit there for a minute or two then check the lvl of oil. If u check you oil while engine is running yes it will say half. I use 5 quarts. Hope this will help.

I called toyota corporate and had them document it, receiving a case number to reference if there is ever an engine issue related to oil it would be taken care of.
Even if all of this is bs in the end at least Toyota "acted" like they were at fault.
You need to find another dealer,the 2012 tacoma 4cyl oil change is every 5000 miles.i went thru this with my local dealer,i have papers from Toyota that the engine in 2011 and 2012 tacomas oil change is every 5000 miles with synthetic ow/20wt
