Can anybody confirm the mileage (or trigger) for the "Maintenance Required" light? Someone on here approximated it at 4500 miles. I am running Mobil1 full synthetic which could probably go a little longer than 4500 miles. Thanks!

4500 miles the light starts flashing to warn you that the 5000 mile service is coming up. At 5000 miles the light stays on solid. The light is not just for oil change (Toyota says 10,000 miles for synthetic oil on new vehicles) but also for lubrication, checking filters, fluids etc. So even if you don't change the oil you should service everything else.

If you have a 2011 you should have free 5000 mile service for the first 25,000 miles so go get it done anyway. If you don't you could void the warranty.
