    I’m fairly new to the 3rd generation Tacoma. I bought a 2017 trd sport with 20K miles on it. Changed the oil right when I bought it and my maintenance light came on at 25K. I’ve been hearing that 3rd gen Tacoma’s are 10K mile oil changes not 5K, is this true?

    They advertise 10k mile oil changes however the service light comes on ever 5k miles. According to the maintenance schedule at 5k miles youre supposed to go to dealer for tire rotation and inspection, 10k miles is oil change, tire rotation, and inspection. Personally I change my oil every 6 months, 5k to 6k mile range, rotate tires once a year.
