2014 Toyota Highlander: Last Visit to the Dealer
April 17, 2015
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.
We brought our Highlander here for both the 5,000- and 10,000-mile services, so it was already in their system. I brought it in on a Friday morning at 8:00 a.m. for a service that included an oil change and tire rotation, and I returned to pick it up about 90 minutes later.
The Highlander took 5 quarts of 0W-20 oil and service techs aired up our tires to 34 psi. As we were still covered by Toyota's free maintenance program (two years or 25,000 miles), the visit was on the house.
From the friendly service advisor to an easy paperwork transaction at the cashier, our last visit to take care of the Highlander was a snap.
Total cost: $0.
Days out of service: 0 (1.5 hours)
