Went on a long trip over the summer, JUL 12-Sep 1st. I put over 9500 miles on going from FL to NY to WY and MT then down thru CO, NM and TX before heading back to FL I drove mostly secondary highways seeing America, Just had my oil changed and tires rotated again, the mileage is now 20,431 and no problems other than a semi through a tire belt in front of me just 200 miles from home. I couldn't swerve to avoid it as I was towing my Harley behind me. The tire belt caught under the right front tire and ripped the inner fender well. I replaced it myself but it was a $150 cost (Toyota Parts) for 2 cheap pieces of plastic stapled together in the middle, oh, and $110 for 8 plastic fasteners. Car ran great the whole trip, no problems, and towed the trailer and bike fine--even averaged better than 28mpg for the trip.chief52 said:Got my 2009 on Dec 1st 2009. Had my 10K check up today with 10,440 miles on it. Like the car, not happy with my local dealer. After todays 2nd complimentary oil change I will be going to synthetic oil at 15K. My last car was a Hyundai Elantra and I used nothing but synthetic every 5- 7k. Never a problem and I sold it with 143K... and it still was in great shape. My dealer today tried to scam me on not doing the tire rotation with the complimentary 10k service... I caught them at it because I removed one of the valve caps before it went in for the service and it came out on the same wheel. They swore they did it until they hauled the mechanic out who worked on it and he said he didn't do it--he missed seeing it on the work order. Funny, you would think the dealer mechanic would know what a 10,000 mile service entails wouldn't you???? ust another way to do a half *** job and charge Scion the whole nut. Guess Toyota really doesn't care much about their reputation. I'm not going back to that dealer (Naples, FL) and not sure I'll go to any dealer unless it is a warranty problem. Better to find a good mechanic you know and trust.
