No, just have it done at a reputable mechanic, not those chain oil change places that are just trying to rip you off. My mechanic charges $25.
Chain places are ok. Just make sure you check they put the oil plug back in and the filter on. Also that they are both tight.

I guess, I just don't like using them.

At high speeds on a Sienna I am getting a traction control warning when accelerating (you may have gotten such an alert when your in a skid on ice). I seem to have full control though, can this be false? Bad sensors etc

On water? Raining?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Tires are good. This is even on dry roadway.

According to Consumer Reports the Toyota sienna's reliability rating Is not so great anymore.
Any mechanics on here that can confirm?
