Yes, Your right so I don't know what he was talking about with the filter unless there were also changing his oil.
Here is some info I just found out..It does not say what models....
References - Toyota Technical Bulletin : World Standard Automatic Transmission Fluid (TC010-07)
I copied part of this from service info I subscribe to....
Certain Toyota applications require use of the Toyota Transmission Fill System to accurately complete transmission fluid changes. Aftermarket transmission shops and at-home mechanics neglecting to use the Toyota-specific Transmission Fill System may under-fill the transmission, which may lead to erratic shift patterns or catastrophic failure of the system.
Toyota has issued a unique set of equipment and processes related to the successful flushing and filling of automatic transmissions requiring Toyota WS fluid. With the introduction of the Toyota WS ATF specification, certain Toyota applications do not specify initial fluid inspection until 100,000 miles. Though this interval is approved by Toyota, many consumers choose to change their transmission fluid prior to the recommended interval.
Consumers who flush and change their transmission fluid to a competitive product, frequently either use fluid change facilities not specifically associated with Toyota or complete the service at home. Often, these shops and consumers do not have the Toyota Transmission Fill System. Without this equipment, proper flush and change procedures may not be accurately completed, leaving the consumer’s transmission vulnerable to the detrimental effects of incorrect fill volume.
Under-filled transmissions can result in erratic shift patterns and, ultimately, transmission failure.
