Tried Scaring me into $900 Up-Sale Charges as car held hostage after being lured in by "routine maintenance". We bought our Toyota from Beaman in 2019, and it's got around 15,000 miles on it now. They talked up the free maintenance at the time of purchase. This week the car said it was time for some. So, I called to schedule an appointment. On that call, they told me the required maint was an oil change and tire rotation, and there would be no charge. When I dropped the car off, the person confirmed what they were doing and said, "I see you bought it here, so no charge today." I sat in their waiting area for about two hours when my phone rang. It was a Beaman rep. who proceeded to list off 9 additional "maintenance" items they recommended for a cost of over $900. They were VERY PUSHY about it. Thankfully, I caught how careful they were with their wording. It was apparent they were reading from a script, like an annoying telemarketer. So, I said, "this is insane; I just came in for the free oil change. Why wasn't I told about this when I called or dropped it off? Does Toyota require this to keep the warranty valid? That is when they finally admitted, "oh well, these are things we will always recommend every 2 years or 20,000 miles.?" In other words, it is nothing to do with the condition of the customer's vehicle. It is just a way to scare people into accepting up-sales. So, I said, "give me a list of what you want to charge me for. I'll research and bring the car back if it's necessary." Then, and only then, did they inform me the maintenance I brought it in for today was not free. I had to give them $196.56 to get my car back. I have researched everything on the list of up charges they gave me. Toyota recommends not one thing that list. A mechanic I spoke to says it would be nuts to do some of the things on the list unless your car is experiencing related issues.
