hello, it is a 2009-470, bought it from a neighbor for 10,000, not bad since all of them in any state are listed at 14,000! I do not have the manual and went to get the oil changed, the mechanic told me it takes 8 quarts. Online search clearly shows it is not 8 while there as I searched on my phone because 8 sounded way too much. Rather than get into an argument, I left, said I had to go and come back another day. Not paying for 8 quarts.

I looked up my engine code and it is 2UZFE and it is clearly 6.6 not 8.

my question is, does the 2009 460 happen to come with another engine size for that same year? I could not find one. This is important to me so that I know maybe it was just an honest error by the mechanic, or is it time to find someone new?

For some reason the J100 V8 (Land Cruiser/LX) takes more oil than the J120 V8 (GX). The former takes 7L (7.2qt) while the latter takes 6.2L (6.6qt).

So I think he mistook your GX470 for the LX470.
