Does anyone recommend using synthetic oil in a 4cyl. RAV4 after the break-in period? Is it worth the extra cost?
Jynx, right on :!:1,000 miles (recommended, no charge from the dealer)
(3,000 mile scheduled intervals)
4,000 miles (Toyota motor oil, no charge)
7,000 miles (Toyota motor oil, no charge)
10,000 miles (Toyota motor oil, no charge)
13,000 miles (Full Synthetic, Toyota dealer recommended, no charge)
(5,000 scheduled mile intervals)
Next oil change and first tune up @ 15,000 miles.
I believe European model ship with syn oil, but North American model doesn't. And European model based on oil change interval of syn, but NA based on interval of dino oil.NilsintheSnow said:I always use high quality syntetic oil..
the question is..
whay does the oem manual(in europe) recomended to have an oil change every 15 000km while in the US the oem manual says oil change every 5000miles(8000km)??
is it because:
- the oil in europe is better(I don't think so)
