    Ok so I have the 100k mile warranty, I am not going to toyota for every oil change.

    I intend to do everything myself, oil change, tranny flush, plugs etc.

    How do I prove to them I did this incase I need warranty work?

    Will receipts be good enough?


    Thanks

    Knock on wood, I have never had to provide documents to prove oil changes were done and I do all my own work. I think most dealerships can assess the routine maintenance of your truck has or has not been done by it's overall apperance. I keep my truck in pristine condition, so most dealers are assured that I also do the upkeep maintenance. I haven't met too many car owners who keep their cars in immaculate apperance but let the routine maintenance go by the way side. Just keep receipts of oil filters and oil if it makes you feel better. I just document when I do my maintenance in the maintenance tracker book that came with the owners manual.

    I just bought mine on december 31st, and it seemed like the dealership couldnt push it enough that they HAVE to do all the oil changes on it in order to keep the warranty going. idk, my first5 oil changes are free thru toyota and the dealership picks up the tab for every sixth one, so im thinking ill just spend the money every 5000 miles and have them do the service since they dont JUST do the oil change. they reseal your windows, rotate your tires, do a 19-point inspection, wash it up nice and pretty, and top off all the other fluids. plus, if i dont have them do all the service on my truck, i void the free tire replacements for the life of the truck warranty, which is a good deal since they will give me free tires every 25k miles as long as i own the truck...

    every state I've happened to live in, burden of proof has been on the dealer by law. If you read your warranty book it will have a star at the end that says "unless otherwise dictated by law". Like the ford warranties (don't know if they still do it) if you do anything it voids the warranty. Cept it was 50 state illegal. Just a scare tactic.

    So, basically if you do anything to your car, they have to prove your work (or suspected lack of) actually happened and was what caused a failure.

    That being said, when I worked at a dealership, when idiots, guidos, malakas, would come in in sports cars with bent push rods, they'd get one repair then black listed.
