Default 3 complimentary oil changes

Has anyone here used their 3 complimentary oil changes??? Just wondering if we could take it to any outside services or do we have to take it to a Toyota Dealer to do it for us. If anyone know what's up please help me out, thank you.

Yes, that is correct. You have to take it to an authorized Toyota dealer.

*I`ve used one already and 4 more to go! Only draw back is they won`t do an oil change for 3K it has to be 5K for an oil change

I am at close to 6000 miles. When I took my scion in for the oil change, it took them 3 hours at the dealer! Free does not apply here, time is money!

Oh well at least I didnt have to do it.............

Default I did my 1st free oil change today

I went to Fremont Toyota this morning and got the 1st complimentary oil change. It took approximately 1.5 hours! Mine was at 5490 miles, but I did oil/filter change by myself at 600miles and 3000miles. I love the feeling of extra secutiry.

Does anyone know what kind of oil Toyota dealers use? I was watching the guy working on my car from a distance and he was using oil from a funnel. I have never taken my car to do an oild change and didn't know they used bulk oil. How do we know that they use quality oil?

I'm not sure what brand of oil they use but they use 10w-30, you have to tell them to use 5w-30 ( recommended for scion)
