I'm scared some dude leased it and never did an oil change on it. They did an oil change on it before selling it to me, replaced the tires and windshield and thats all I know. How bad could it be if this guy never did an oil change? I know Toyotas are bulletproof and maybe this guy just did them himself in his garage, but I'm talking worst case scenario...

Thanks!
I never go to dealer for oil changes on anything i've owned.
Did you look through all the owners manuals for a place where he may have written down the maintenance possibly?

My truck won't show much at the dealer because I do my own oil changes. I let them do 1 of the free ones and they made a mess. Pretty sure they didn't change the filter. Never again, I'll just do it myself.

Ever consider an oil analysis from a company like Blackstone Labs?

Those samples can usually give a ballpark idea if a problem might be coming down the line. (High sodium in an oil sample can mean a coolant leak, high copper can be a ring issue, etc). The folks over at Bob is the Oil guy forums can do a better job explaining than I can.

Might be worth looking into.

Spilled milk at this point. Just take care of it from this point forward. You'll be fine.

Check the maintenance manual see if they wrote anything in it. I document every oil change. Every 2500 miles. I changed mine in between the dealer oil changes. All written down in the book. I would run like the wind from a truck with no oil change history.

My 2011 uses up tires every 22,000 to 25,000 miles and I don't drive like a maniac. I am 67 years old and drive like an old lady. I use P rated tires so that may be why.

Can't speak about not changing oil in a V8 Tundra but a co-worker of mine told me years ago that he had never changed the oil in an old Tacona he bought really cheap from a guy needing quick cash. It had 80k miles when he bought it and he said he just added oil when needed. The last I talked to him he said he gave it to his boy with 170k on it and the boy changed the oil for the first time since 80k. Wow! It's still on the road as far as I know.

Check oil filter housing for scratches/marks to see if its been pulled or attempted before. Also my truck came from factory with painted bolt line mark on oil pan bolt. its its not perfectly straight probably been changed. But either way you should be fine most likely.

Send an oil sample off for analysis for peace of mind.

Needing new tires & windshield @ 25k doesn't mean much. The 2014 SR5 tires are complete crap; I have 24k on my 2014 SR5 and the tires will need to be replaced this summer....and they sit in the garage for 6 months out of the year while I'm running winter tires for the other 6!
Where I live cracked/ruined windshields are the norm too. I think the windshield is more a symptom of tailgating a bit too close than anything else.
