Dealer recommends service for 2011 Toyota Tacoma - is this necessary?

When I say catastrophic, that’s exactly what I mean . . .

Black fluid, metal shavings, etc.

Complete overhaul, replacement of numerous parts, including the torque converter and cooler lines, flush everything, and so forth

And I had warned them at about 30K that it’s time to service the fluid and filter

I even said I would do it, if they provided the fluid and filter

But they knew best, or so they thought . . . :smirk_cat:
