Oil Change Beware - Rav4 takes special oil - from Toyota
I am really fired up now. Just got back from the Toyota dealer (Savage Toyota, Hamburgh, PA) after getting an oil change. I had a coupon for $19.95. The total for the oil alone was $22.15 @ $4.43 per quart. I was told that the 06 Rav takes a special oil which turned out to be 5W20. Evidently this change took affect in February.
They told me that the Rav is the only one that requires this oil. After showing how I felt about this unexpected rip-off, My bill was adjusted with a $22.52 credit.
So, all you fellow Rav 4 owners, don't be surprised when you get the bill for your next oil change. If I would not have complained, my total bill would have been $43.98 for an oil change.
