A tech on the Camry forum(28 yrs. Toyota dealer experience) says the AMSOIL product is as good or maybe better. Just stating what I've read over there.
I drain and refill my '06 Avalon XL(has a dipstick) every 25K. Has about 151K on it now. I might pull the pan and wash the reusable mesh filter one of these days. Then again - I might not.
Still running the original spark plugs, upper/lower radiator hoses and serpentine belt.
Transmission fluid change
and see my post #6 ......
Read TSB - TC010-07
and note the following:
1) Toyota says you never need to change the (synthetic) world standard fluid. However, most agree doing it at 100,000 miles is a good idea.
2) Toyota WS fluid is not compatable with other fluids.
3) The procedure for changing the fluid is complex if you have a six speed with no dipstick. Do it wrong and you can do more harm than good.

Some options for those WS transmissions which can be mixed with WS:
Sure, leave it in there for 100k. When it clunks whines shudders or fails, don't complain.
