I'd pull it off but I'm afraid it might pull the paint off!

After a few minutes of this, I finally told her that I am getting ready to buy a new truck in a year or so and asked her "What brand truck shoud I buy next?"

She then immediately told me that she was sorry that she lost me as a customer. I told her that she had the power to help me but is refusing to do so. She said that she was ending the call at that time because there was nothing more to say.

I asked for he supervisor or Jim Lentz. She said that Mr Lentz doesn't interface with customers.

After that, she hung up.

Looking forward to the day I by a Ford F150.

Wow. It's amazing how crappy Toyota's product support is, I'm experiencing it too. Conversely, Nissan's been fantastic for my wife's car.

You could send them a copy of your next truck's bill or sale and bullet points of why.

they dont care. the truck is out of warranty. its not their problem.

this is not a "toyota" issue, its owning a car issue. it happens to VWs, Fords, practically every car out there.

its never happened to any of my vehicles before (one of which i owned for 225,000mi) but i would not be surprised if it does, esp if the car is parked outside its whole life. your only insurance is waxing regularly.

if it bugs someone enough, gotta the bullet and get it re-sprayed. do the prep work yourself and cut down on the labor if its too much $. this is no different than a mechanical repair. ***t breaks.

I took my truck to Maaco. Two stage paint job. Looks factory good, color matches, and it wasn't expensive! And it has a good warranty!

Thanks for the offer, but I already got the hood repainted. They did an excellant job feathering and blending the new to the old. Plus they gave me a warranty for as long as I own the truck.
