    WTF? They force a tire rotation in without an oil change to go along with it? Are the tires specialized to where they can't wait a few more thousand miles to be rotated along with the oil change or is it the "safety inspection" that is important here (maybe something relating to the hybrid tech)? Seems strange to me.

    You guys have gotten awfully stingy with the LT updates the past few months. 2 or 3 a day at best some cars go weeks without anything new, or just some minor not particularly useful paragraph. And the test fleet has really shrunk.

    Is Edmunds phasing out this feature, because it sure feels like it.

    Oil change interval is 10000 miles due to synthetic oil, but tires need to be rotated more frequently. Safety inspection has nothing to do with the hybrid technology.

    Not to worry. We're committed to the Long-Term program and plan to integrate it further with our core content in the months to come.
