I'm at about 9,500....haven't changed it yet! Gonna take it in for my freebie at 10,000. I plan to get a UOA done before the change.



I may be living on the edge but I think that if Toyota say's it's okay then it will be. I mean really how many Toyota engines do you hear about that blow up due to oil change related failures?

Changed mine at 5k. My free 10k oil change will be next month.

around 4700 at my first free service appointment. The dealer changed it at around 5000 because it is a FFV and I get free oil changes for 25000 miles :)

4840. Did it myself using Mobil 1 0W20.

Over 50% of those miles were towing my car trailer so I changed it earlier than I probably would have had to. Afterward, I had the oil analyzed and found out that I had nothing to worry about and could have gone longer before changing the oil.

thanks everyone. i was always in the notion that regardless if its standard or synthetic you should change the oil at 1000 first and then go to what manufacture recommends!
that is a myth. If there was a grain of truth to it.. Toyota will not recommend the first oil change at 10K as they'd be worried about lawsuits and recalls.

10K for my first.. went on a 2000+ mile trip in the snow before the first oil change.. no issues whatsoever. In fact, I went to the stealership to get them to change the oil before I left for the trip (@ 6K miles) and they politely refused saying Toyota recommended is 10K.

7500 miles. Did it myself as I don't trust dealerships to do anything I can do myself, plus by the time I drive 55 miles to the dealer and wait, I could have the job finished. Used Mobil 1 0W20.

I just did my first oil change at 5000 miles, 2012 5.7L. Question on the oil filter - is the filter cartridge supposed to fit snuggly into the cannister housing? I didn't notice the tightness or looseness of the stock cartridge when removing but the new Mobil 1 cartridge fits somewhat loosely. I assume it seats firmly in as the housing is tightned back up into the engine. Thanks in advance!
