Isn't it kind of soon for a rad flush ?
Unless you had your 03 early in 02 ?
You should be good for 3+ years especially on a brand new system.
Please, auto-care experts, correct me if I'm wrong.

Do the newer Toyotas run that orange Dexcool stuff? I know GM cars have for the past few years. The Dexcool is supposed to be less maintenance than the old green stuff.

I just drained and filled my green stuff yesterday. Ran some water through it and got out some dirty stuff. It wasn't bad; I have owned the car for more than 4 years and hadn't done anything to the coolant.

Also changed the oil and changed the tranny filter and fluid for good measure.
