Since 2017 we've taken my wife's 2014 IS250 to the Lexus dealer for an oil change every 10k miles and no issues (bought the car used). When I bought my Supra in June 2022 The Toyota service manager said 10k miles is what the manual said but he recommended doing the first at 5k then 10k then every 10k after that.Well so much for that 10K mile oil change.
Well he stated that by the time the warranty is over, Toyota is off the hook so Toyota doesn't care. I'm kinda confused why people stated that it's clickbait when he stated that you should not do their 10K oil change and do it at 5K instead. Isn't that what most people here are saying that you should do it at 5K and not 10K?Haven't watched the full video but his previous Supra specific video was quite interesting.
I think he only speaks of Toyota engines. Since ours is a BMW it might differ?
Also. In Europe (Belgium/Germany) we get 10 year warranty (engine included) called Toyota Relax if we service the vehicle yearly at a Toyota dealer.
Would be strange if Toyota provides a warranty while also having the vehicle remind the driver for service intervals each year or 15k km's (9.3k miles) if it was bad for the engine for such high km's.
Don't get me wrong. I believe earlier oil changes can do no harm, but these high-tech engines are probaly more capable than portrayed in the video.
He explained that the engineers didn't write nor publish the 10K mileage oil change. It was written by most likely marketing who asked a few questions and went ahead with the promotion. By the time the engine is ruined it'll be way past it's warranty.I’m sure that guy has more knowledge about oil changes than the bmw/Toyota engineers…
Im not sure why they’d put 10k if it wasn’t safe. Oil manufacturers also recommend 10k for synthetic. It wouldn’t be in their best interest to recommending waiting to change your oil. Toyota may not care after warranty, but if a large number of cars develop and issue because the oil needs changed every 5 instead of 10, they open themselves up to civil liability. Which is far more expensive than charging you for an extra oil change.
