Many people got the same service package with the purchase of their new Rav4


5,000M - Tire rotation and inspection
10,000M - Free oil change, tire rotation and inspection
15,000M - Tire rotation and inspection
20,000M - Free oil change, tire rotation and inspection


Originally I decided to stick to this schedule. However, recently I've decided to error on the side of caution. I'll be doing oil changes every 5,000M.

If your on the fence - Just Do It. I've done Harleys that way. But never a vehicle.

Yeah I'm with you, I'll change my first oil change myself at maybe 4000 miles and let them do the 10,000 mile oil change and so on.

Never.
I do my own maintenance.
I follow the recommended intervals (10,000 or 1 year)
