    Found this TSB online: LT 75W-85 API GL-5 Differential Gear Oil - The differential gear oil specified for many Toyota vehicles has changed to 75W-85 GL5 synthetic gear oil, beginning with some 2007 and 2008 model year vehicles.

    Can't really say if I would trust whether or not they used synthetics or not from the factory. I just change my own at an early interval so I know myself what I'm running.
