2012 Toyota Camry Long Term Road Test


2012 Toyota Camry SE: Maintenance Time

March 05, 2012

Camry maintenance

The Camry's Maintenance Required light started blinking at me today when I fired the car up after getting it washed. It blinks on and off for about 15 seconds, then leaves you alone (thankfully).

According to the owner's manual, the light will come on "approximately 4,500 miles after the maintenance data has been reset." The odometer just passed 4,800 miles.

The warning light is telling us the Camry is due for its 5,000-mile service, apparently a fairly minor affair of mostly inspections and tire rotation. We'll get it taken care of soon.
