Miller Toyota in Culver City, CA. It was time for the truck's 80,000-mile service, so I went out to WalMart and bought 6 quarts of Mobil 1 "Extended Duration" (?) synthetic oil, then drove to the dealer-
ship and asked for service at about 11 AM. The service cat looked at me for a moment, then threw a punch! Canny, perceptive dude that I am, I interpreted that as a "no," and left.
No, but seriously, they took me right away, did the lube/oil/filter/tire rotation/multi-point inspection service, re-set all five tires to 35 PSI, took special care looking for leaks around axle seals and wheel
bearing seals, topped off all fluid levels and even measured and reported the depth of the tread on all
five tires and the amount of lining left on the calipers. Total labor charge for all of that was $51, which
seems reasonable to me. Then they tried to sell me a "throttle body cleaning" (tech said it 'looked black in there') and a fuel injection system flush. I was going to say no, but then the service writer took $80 off of those two combined services, so I caved and let them do it. I'm fully aware that both those services are over-sold by dealerships and over-rated, but I couldn't help myself. I'm so in love with that V-6 4Runner that whenever a service writer offers an additional service, I degenerate into Pavlov's dog and start to salivate. So the dealership made a little (?) money and I saved a little money, albeit on two
services of dubious utility, and I left the dealership feeling I had done my best to extend the service life of my truck.
I was out the door in just under three hours, and feeling very pleased that I only got overcharged about $100 (I hope) at a total bill of $300. Am now good for another 5,000 miles. By the way, the tech said that he found no leaks and no low fluid levels anywhere, which ain't bad for a six year old truck with 80,000 miles on it. This is just reinforcement for my belief that these are remarkably well made and well designed trucks. I be impressed.
