My Review Of Village Toyota:
I don't think that management takes their parts customers seriously. Parts have to be ordered (lack of stock), out of 4 orders (over 9 months) they got one correct (that's 25% reliability), and difficult to talk to a person (being auto transferred to voice mail is common).
I tried to get internet pricing on parts, as a last attempt to work with my local Dealer. My choices are to pay full list price and get the parts the next day, at the Dealer, but no shipping charge, or Buy online at a 20% reduction in price but pay for shipping to get it in 3 days at a rate that eats up the 20% discount (overnight shipping on auto parts is outrageous because of weight).
I asked if I could buy on their web page and have it come in with their regular shipments from the warehouse in Jacksonville FL, and I can pick it up in person. This was to save me from shipping charges, and besides they are already getting the parts delivered daily. (in FL it comes from the same place as well).
I was told that the manager needed to be asked first and I agreed but asked that they let me know well before the ordering cut off time for the day. The cut off time is 4:00 PM EST daily. They notified me at 4:03PM EST that the manager was unwilling to work with me on the price to keep my business. RUDE! (not working with me is his choice, but waiting until 4:03 is the last slap in the face I'll let them give me).
I'm used to how this Dealer treats their customers and so (just in case) I ordered from another Dealer. This Dealer (village) takes me 25min to drive one way, now I'm going 45min one way to get my parts. If It doesn't save any money, but this new Dealer actually considers my business important, It will be worth it to me. I plan on showing my evidence to Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.
Just a poor business attitude, guess Toyota is doing so great that they don't have to compete like the rest of us.
