*Consumer Comment: Why was this so hard, Lee?
*UPDATE Employee: Please and this goes for all automotive owners understand things break.
*Consumer Comment: The oil pan drain plug was stripped in our '89 F150. I 'found it' one Saturday
After 10 - 15 (documented) calls to get the matter resolved, they made an offer of $1,711 to replace the oil pan. After a series of e-mails and calls to the Service Manager, their best price was reduced to $1,200. What an insult to pay $1,200 to correct their error. The S M went on at length how it could not happen in his shop, but that the damage had to have occurred from previous oil changes in other Toyota shops. I had several unreturned calls to the dealership G M.
I can't say for certain this was a deceptive practice of stripping drain plugs out on purpose, in order to generate huge repair bills. However, it would be a tidy piece of service business to "cause" for Sport City.
I found a Lexus shop (Lexus Landcruiser has same engine) to make the repair for $475. I believe that speaks for itself as to the overcharge attempt by Toyota.
I looked at using my attorney to sue, but the retainer costs would be > $475.
