So this morning my truck was in for frame "CRT" (corrosion resistant treatment) warranty work @ Wilde Toyota in Milwaukee. I gave it a once-over before I left the lot and I thought everything looked good. They warned me not to let the frame or suspension parts get wet for 4 days while the ooey gooey black goop cures. That alone will be tricky since it's been raining like every afternoon and I'm gonna need to do some driving in the next few days.
My truck is white. original finish, and I've done a lot to keep it in good condition
When I got home, I noticed a really bad looking black smear below the driver's side quarter window. I quickly got a wet paper towel to clean it off and guess what? Everywhere the paper towel touched instantly turned black and looked almost like a burn mark the size of my hand. OVERSPRAY!! Somewhat in shock, I looked really closely at the rest of the driver's side of the body, and to my amazement, the previously white finish looked grey upon close inspection. Then, since I was not sure of the extent of the overspray, I rubbed a small area of the quarter window and... oily looking, sticky smear. And on the windshield... oily smears according to where the "wind pattern" is. Good thing I didn't need to turn my wipers on!
I immediately called the service dept. @ Wilde and told them what's going on. After talking to the service rep who worked with me, who at this point kinda started freaking out, he said I could bring the truck back tomorrow and they would "take care of it". Then he left a message on my phone a little while later and said that I could try fixing it on my own with lacquer thinner, if I don't want to bring my truck back to the dealer.
I want them to fix what they screwed up. Is there some kinda compensation (like a complementary tank of gas) I can try to demand from the dealer for causing problems, and possibly causing improper setting for the CRT since it's supposed to rain tomorrow?
