Just got our new '23 AWD Cross last week. Really like the car a lot so far!
Our dealer said that Toyota says 10k (required to keep the warranty good), but if you really intend to keep the car out to 250k miles or more, you should do 5k.
He said they cover the first 2 required changes at 10 and 20k, but they would be happy to take my money to change the oil and filter at the 5k tire rotations while they have it up on the rack in between.
I'd like to know how complicated it is to DIY the oil and filter on an AWD 2023 version.?.
Dealer suggested I stay with the Toyota branded oil. Even though it's made by Mobil 1, Toyota specifies some additional ingredients for their motors. Thoughts on that?
Years ago, I always did my own...but cars were simpler then.
I always followed a 5k schedule on a Mitsubishi built Dodge Colt I had. My son later bought that car from me at 100k, then he sold it to a friend at 200k. It has over 300k on it now, and motor still runs great...no smoke or oil consumption. Rest of the car is falling apart, but the engine still runs strong.
