mine came on at under 30k, ended up being something big...head and catalitic converter had to be replaced, under warranty tho, and had it fixed at toyota, they were like "this is very uncommon in such a new car".

I think it comes on at 99k to remind you to go to the dealer for your 100k checkup. this should be done no matter how hast you hit the miles up.
