    I bought a new Tacoma 2 months and the service department tells me I don't have to change the oil until ten thousand miles is this right?

    Yeah. It’s tough to get used to. Not break in oil anymore. I honestly still change mine at 5k though.

    Depends on how much you drive it’s 10k miles or one year. I only drive about 4-5k miles a year so I change mine once a year. So like @Bogunn every 5k Miles.

    I hope the answer is
    “I use Synthetic and change mine about every 5K-6K miles”
    Otherwise I’m going to be concerned.

    It’s not Dug that has trouble communicating. It’s you that have trouble listening.
