I have yet to take my truck in for the first oil change. I have the two year maintenance free with the truck and I was wondering if anyone knows if they do synthetic oil for it. I have seen that Toyota recommends synthetic and if that is the case shouldn't the dealer put synthetic in it?

I'm not 100% sure but this may be one of those YMMV items. I have read here on TS that some members have had oil changes via the dealership and they had used a synthetic blend while others have received fully synthetic oil. It peaked my curiousity and I called my dealership yesterday b/c I have the same plan that you do. Thankfully, the service manager at my local dealership believes in no more than 5,000 mile oil change intervals as I do and they only use fully synthetic oil in the Tundra's. I would say to call your local dealership and talk to someone in the service department to verify what you will receive.

Will do. With synthetic I thought the interval was 10K miles. I have done some oil analysis before and the synthetic stuff was still like new after the standard stuff was done for, on 4 stroke outboard engines (very hard treatment).

My dealer threw in a Toyota platinum 65 K maintenance plan. Covers all the service recomendations and I do not know yet if synthetic oil is included. It covers the cabin air filter and other normal use service requirements. I doubt if it includes the synthetic but it's still nice particularily for FREE.

The maint plan here includes synthetic oil.They told me Toyota calls for that in the 5.7
The plan at any Toyota Dealership is a 25k maint plan.Which includes 5 tire rotations and 5 oil changes.Im going to have mine done at the same time even though synthetic in the 5.7 can go 10k miles.
