I don't recall an issue with the door handles - I am certain all Carmys have the same door handle parts. As for the Oil Change Interval - it was extended by Toyota to 10K miles. I my self asked about getting an oil change done early - break in period and all that, but was told by a number of credible sources that it is not necessary. The engines go through a break in period before install, so there should be no metal shards left when the car is delivered with fresh oil to the customer. However, unlike Honda, the Toyota engine doesn't come with any solvents added to the car from factory - so, if you choose there is nothing preventing you from getting an oil change done early. But, keep in mind that it requires full synthetic 0-20W oil, and a change will cost around $65+. I my self waited till it turned 7.5K to get my first oil change - still the oil on the dip stick looked perfect! Keep in mind that the oil change light will still go off at 5K intervals - check your manual for re-set instructions.

because i bought this month, i got a 2 year/25k miles free maintenance from toyota that includes oil change, so I'm taking it to the dealer for the free oil change at 5k miles.
can you do me a favor and check all 4 of your inside doors, if you squeeze on the 'handle', does it flex? are there a small gap on any of them??

Did the revised Owners Manual that I received from Toyota after the oil change interval mention that it needs full synthetic oil? I couldn't find it. I did find it pretty funny that under the 5K maintenance schedule it says something like "check floormat".

cc62966 is right; that's common on other midsizers as well. I have a V6 Sonata with dual exhausts, but the 4-cylinder has just one. Same for Accord I4 and V6 models.

My 2010 SE, a 2.5 4 cylinders has twin tailpipes.

Update on my comment about the car feeling like it's lurching when I go from a full stop. It seems to have improved a lot - I actually don't notice anything but a smooth pull away from a stopped position. I don't think it's my imagination. Maybe the car engine broke in or something. Do new cars have any sort of break in period? My 4 cylinder Camry now has 16K on it. I'm really pleased with it.

Toyota catching up to Ford???
Ford SAYS that they have caught up to Toyota in quality.......really?....just because Ford says so? Toyota says look at our record not rhetoric.
What Ford does best is marketing, not building cars.
Lets see what the long term quality of Ford vs. Toyota is before we declare Ford the king.
