I don't know for sure but my guess is it will be like most other Toyota's, they recommend 10K synthetic oil changes.Any guidance yet on the recommended oil change intervals is for the 4th gen engines? Do hybrid engines usually have different intervals? And synthetic or conventional oil?
I agree....after seeing so much I can't imagine waiting the 10K personally especially since I have kept my current car for over 200K miles and plan to do the same with the next one.Never go 10k (15k km) on any turbo charged engine. 5K (7.5k km) max is my thought based on a lot of Youtube watching.
I've had similar experiences. Some service advisors will fight you on it. I've thought about foregoing the free oil changes and doing them myself, just to avoid the hassle. I feel better about 5k oil changes rather than 10k. It can't hurt anything by being at best proactive, at worst, paranoid.A co work has a Toyota though and says that the dealer almost fights him on changing it before the 10K
