2014 Toyota Highlander: 10,000-Mile Service
October 23, 2014
As the maintenance minder in our 2014 Toyota Highlander finally changed from "maintenance required soon" to "take me to a dealership now or suffer the consequences," we made an appointment at our local dealership to placate the SUV's incessant startup message.
We arrived at Toyota Santa Monica bright and early without an appointment, and were tended to right away. The drop-off took less than 10 minutes, with the majority of the time trying to find the Highlander in the Toyota service system (a digit in the VIN was transcribed incorrectly before plugging it into the computer). With that problem solved, we bolted.
The car was ready a few hours later, with fresh oil and a pretty decent wash to boot. The service was covered by Toyota's complimentary maintenance program, which covers regular service costs for 2 years/25,000 miles.
Total Cost: $0.00
