You should not have any problems if you follow the factory maintenance
schedule. If you want to be on the safe side, change the automatic
transmission fluid (ATF) every 30,000 or 60,000 miles. Your transmission
may require special ATF that Jiffy Lube does not carry so check for the
correct ATF in your owner's manual before letting Jiffy Lube have a go at
it.

It does use Toyota T-IV or Valvoline type 33-03 so I will have the
dealer do it.

I wouldn't let Jiffy Lube touch my Toyota. I have heard to many horror storys about them.I have 42,000 miles on my 2016 Toyota Corolla and i will take it to my dealer to have the transmission fluid changed at 60,000. I plan on keeping my car as long as possible. I take care of it and i don't let just anyone work on it.
