Where on toyota.com did you find that info? I have a 4wd Highlander V6. According to the chart, the car should have a timing chain. Just wondering where I can find similar information.

More evidence to support the position that Dealer service departments are crooked.
timing chains have a longer interval before replacement compared to belts.

You might be giving the dealer too much credit. I had an '89 Nissan Sentra AWD Wagon, and upon the dealer's advicer took the car in to have the timing belt changed. The technician came out fairly quickly and sheepishly admitted that the car had a chain and not a belt, and that there was no recommendation to replace it.
