Just got finished organizing and logging all of my service records. I’ve changed the oil 52 times in my 20 years owning this truck.

Fixed it for ya
Fun fact. The guy who bought my M5 actually owns a machine shop and has two spare engines for when the rod bearings let go on the original one. I commended the guy on his dedication and preparedness. Luckily for him, my history of oil analysis on that S85 motor always looked spectacular on the stock rod bearings.

Helluva car, helluva motor, but definitely not Toyota reliability nor maintenance costs!

Don't start making fun of Beamer coil pack failures, your land cruiser might be listening


I'm on coil pack replacement #5 and carry a spare around among other parts like some kind of hobo.

This is exactly why I just pretend mine are 100% fine. Until proven otherwise.

Yep! Previous owner gave me a meticulous folder chronologically ordered. 20 years all on paper.

Total = $21, 243 ($88 a month).

I'd be interested to hear your total. Maybe, with enough input, we can come to a consensus of that it costs to maintain these over the long term. 25 years is a long time.

Now, just imagine how much you spent on fuel!? Probably another 30-40K!
