At what mileage is the maintenance required light suppose to come on? I thought it would every 5,000 miles, but mine just came on for the first time at 6,400 miles.

It comes on at 5000 miles. Unless somebody reset it at 1400 miles.

I had a weird thing happen to me yesterday. First of all, I went to my local Toyota dealer to get my 20k maintenance completed and of course they reset the maintenance light that lights up on the dash within the odometer/speedometer area. Well, when I got in my vehicle yesterday afternoon, a maintenance message came up on my navigation screen concerning my oil filter needing replacement. I didn't know what that was all about so I called the dealer to confirm that they actually did replace the filter and the service person assured me that it had been completed. Apparently there is an app in the stereo system for maintenance and it even breaks down my oil, oil filter, tire rotation, etc...


So it appears you can set your own parameters in there with dates and mileage, etc.

That's correct. At each oil & filter change I reset the Maintenance Light along along with other reminders in the navigation screen. Pretty helpful.
