went to toyota today, got the 60k service done. the 5w30 oil costs 3150, filter was for 1210 and they charged a whooping 3000 as service charges in which they cleaned the plugs, air filter, brake service and a complementry body wash. have decided not to go to toyota any more, they are efing thieves. from now on will buy the oil and filter and get the rest done from some other workshop.
was just wondering, is the toyota 5w30 oil synthetic? if not then will be using zic A+ in future, costs almost 1k less.
Has anyone changed their Transmission oil yet. I was planning to get mine changed but when the guy at Toyota checked it, it seemed pretty new, no smell or decoloration. so decided not to change it. Also have seen on another forum, people recommend not to fill the engine oil up to the max mark on dip stick. they recommend to keep it a bit less than full mark. The toyota guy has filled it to the max indicator and am thinking of bleeding some oil to lower the level. what do you guys suggest ?
