Please note two things:

1.   Mr. Lube shows the Toyota part number and their charge is in addition to the filter that is included in their package price.

2.  Mr. Lube states that they follow the manufacturer's service recommendation, yet they are recommending the next service to be performed every 5000 kms. Toyota's service intervals are every 8000 kms and oil changes at every 16 000 kms for this vehicle. While it is unclear if they are recommending an oil change in 5000 kms, it's clear they are recommending the next service occur 3000 kms earlier than Toyota's recommendation.

As you can see Ken Shaw Toyota is not only competitive but we are significantly cheaper.
