By 7,500 mile schedule what does that mean I should have done every 7,500? Oil changes should still be more frequent?
since you are the second owner, maybe they didn't give you the maintenance guide
no, they have 2 schedules, one is for normal service (7,500 miles) and the other for severe service (5,000 miles)
according to Toyota:
severe service= towing a trailer, short trips of 5 miles or less in cold weather, driving on unpaved roads
the oil should be changed, filter replaced, and tires rotated every 7,500 miles
the air conditioner filter should be replaced every 22,500 miles
the air filter should be changed every 30,000 miles
replace the coolant at 60,000 miles
the spark plugs at 120,000 miles
if you have AWD/4WD there are additional things
the things you originally listed should be checked
