    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Mobil One since the first oil change, religously change the oil every 5000-6000 , twice a year, whether it needs it or not.

    '10, 23,000 miles, whatever the dealer sevice dept. is using which is what Toyota recommends. All three of my Tacomas treated the same (dealer done oil changes every 3-4 thousand miles)... the other 2 over 100,000 miles with no engine problems.

    '10 V6 with ~17k miles. Dealer 'free maintenance' oil changes starting at 1600 miles, then every 5k. No issues so far, and I will be switching to Mobil 1 and doing my own oil changes once the free changes are done with.

    This is pretty much why we get the oil changes done at the dealer, they're free! :D

    The wife and I had some customer service issues, and the manager ended up giving us like 10 free oil changes! They'll be running out soon as we are on number 7...
