Our year-long test of our 2014 Toyota Highlander is nearing its end. But we recently passed 20,000 miles on the odometer and that meant an appointment for the required service. I called Toyota Santa Monica to set it up.

Our 2014 Toyota Highlander last visited the dealer in October. A couple of days ago, the big blue crossover notified us it was due for routine service. The 15,000-mile interval called for a tire rotation and visual inspections of the brakes, wiper blades and fluids. I took the Highlander to Puente Hills Toyota just after noon.

Rushing out the front door, hands full of laptop bag, gym bag and things-I-must-mail-at-the-post-office bag, I fumble for the 2014 Toyota Highlander's key fob. I press "unlock." Nothing. I press it again. Twice. Still nothing.

We received this recall notice for our 2014 Toyota Highlander. The supplemental restraint system electronic control unit requires a software update because it does not conform to the Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standard. That's a mouthful. In simpler terms, the SRS ECU fails to meet the FMVSS.

The first service for our 2014 Toyota Highlander was a quick and painless one. Kelly dropped the SUV off in the morning for a tire rotation, fluid top-off and a few inspections. We were a little surprised to learn that while scheduled maintenance is set at 5,000-mile intervals, the Highlander only needs an oil change every 10,000 miles. Most of the cars in our long-term fleet get an oil change every time.
