Every Toyota Camry model since 2002 has come equipped with a friendly reminder to change your oil. The "maintenance required" light is set to the factory default of 5,000-mile service intervals. The light must be manually reset each time the vehicle is serviced; unfortunately, sometimes technicians forget, leaving you with a service light even after changing your oil.
