I have to agree with you, ours does very well on the trip from California to Arizona, even with the AC at 80 mph. I will try to buy another one someday.
#508 of 508 Toyota dealers still over filling oil at oil change!!
Jul 11, 2013 (3:32 pm)
In the interest of continuous improvement, many if not most? of the Toyota dealers need to make the mental adjustment that they're putting in a little too much oil at oil change time! I bought a 12 camry 2.5 and twice they've put it what appears to be the max crankcase capacity, 4.7 quarts I believe. Problem is, the next morning on a flat surface, cold the dip stick shows about and extra 0.33 quarts of oil over the full mark. It's probably because they're pressured to do more work in less time, etc! You say I'm being a picky Engineer, well see forums, reads what extra oil does-foams and then doesn't lubricate properly, etc!
Suggest Toyota Corp send memo to back off 1/4 quart at oil change which may improve engine problems stats in the long run, etc! Yes, I know you'll probably get complaints they didn't top it off-so what, it's better for the car/customer!
Well done on the 2012 model-compact car mpg, quiet, refined engine/drive train, etc!
