I've owned my 2007 since buying it new July 2006. This is the first time I've heard of checks to ES350 owners. Obviously, no money for me so far.

I'm agreeing with old grump here, you're being way too anal about this. The 6.4 quarts is a target and not an absolute requirement. A dipstick check is not a precise measurement. Draining the oil...

My Toyota and Lexus dealers refused to do a transmission flush - refused my money. So I did it myself. Although I've had no problems, I agree that no oil lasts forever.

Any oil will do. They're that good now. I use Mobil 1.

I forgot, I put in a new battery earlier this year. That will add about $13 per year to my total cost so far.
