I agree that the dipstick is hard to read, particularly with new-ish oil. However, speaking for myself, I noticed that my 2009 RX350 doesn't seem to use oil - it still shows 'full' or so close that...

No, it is not normal. It would appear they disconnected the warming light (strange....!)
"My" Costco did not 'do' TPMS changes - I thus changed tires and am still fine. Another post stated that they...

If you had your rims/tires roadforce balanced, I would return where they did the job and complain. Good luck, anyway!

If you have a slight shake at 80mph, it is most probably due to imperfect balancing. That is the speed at which it shows up most in the RX (18" wheels).

The RX is normally very smooth all the way to top speed of 110mph or so (170 km/h). If yours vibrates, it is that something is not OK. If you are sure your rims and tires are OK, then it is something...

Indeed. The dealer recommended it (Toyota 0W-20) and it seems it contains a 'special' additive pack in addition to the base Mobil 1 oil. They say change in 10 mos. or 10K miles, which comes first....

I have used Mobil1 for years. More recently, on my 2009-RX350, after using Mobil1 5W-30 but changing oil every 6 mos., 5000 miles max (so that my warranty would not be voided - but what a waste!) I...
