Another disappointing service visit to Toyota of Newnan. I have written before about the lack of consistency by the service crew, and today was no exception. My third Toyota since 2006 and all service work has been done by the dealership, which should be a good thing, right?
However, when I take the time to inform the service writer that the two things that the service department consistently gets wrong, and then she takes the time to enter specific requests into the work order... how the he** does the service tech not do those two simple tasks?
For the second time, my air pressure on all four tires was low. The factory sticker says 44/45 and all 4 were set to 36 - again, a note was entered into the work order to set the pressure at 44. For the fourth or fifth time, the tech failed to properly secure my front skid plate after completing an oil change. This has happened repeatedly so again, the service writer entered a specific request to ensure the skid plate was properly put back on the vehicle. To my surprise, one bolt and washer were missing, which was very evident by the lone open hole without a bolt and washer.
The NEW service manager took my truck back into the service bay, and said he would "stay with the truck" to ensure all work was completed. I walk over, and he is sitting in his office. So much for saying he would stay with my truck, especially since I had some personal items sitting out that he said would be okay and in his sight.
Based on my experience, I now understand why there is a NEW service manager but, believe me, I was not impressed with the service department nor its new manager. I almost forgot... the bill was wrong by about $10 or so but he didn't even offer to correct it.
This is my closest dealership and, if I had another option for real QUALITY service, I would take it elsewhere. Maybe it is time to consider a swap to another truck brand because this dealership is consistently letting me down.
