25k Miles No oil change?

Hey guys need some help. Just bought a 2014 Cm sr5 Off-road and am super happy with the truck. Got it from the dealer, super clean 25k miles, but when I check with the service dept they have no previous maintenance history on the truck. 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!

Person could have done it themselves to save $. But needing new windshield and tires at 25k makes me wonder how hard the previous owner must have been on it.

With free oil changes since or before the 2010 I bough new, I would be sketchy on it.

I've never used my free oil changes. I only go to the dealer for warranty work. Although I had to have the dealer install the TRD Supercharger.

only way to know is to change it yourself and take a look at it.

I haven't used one of my free services other than the first one for a tire rotation. Haven't been back since. I have just over 14,000 miles and have changed the oil three times along with the front, rear differential and transfer case once. Hopefully the guy was in a complete tool and changed it at least once.

That's just over 8k miles per year... That's very low miles for a 2014. My 2c says it's fine. Some of these new oils can go 20k before changing.

I have a 2yr old truck with 11k miles and have done two oil changes myself so it will never show up. Also had two windshields done one thanks to a gardener the other thanks to wind. My truck is always garaged. So new windshields doesn't mean it was driven hard.

Drive it like you stole it

If you're that worried about it, just pull a valve cover off and see if there is sludge built up. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.
